Put a bit of heat on the bolt before you start to soften up the Loctite.

Of course I applied heat to mine also, but (as Charles noted) the inadequate small/shallow Torx engagement was already compromised by then.

The Loctite on there was unreal solid. I had to re-tap the 8 mm hole before I could fit the new one. Unfortunately this will send debris into the motor if the crankcases aren't being separated.

Maybe get in there and try removing the bolt Gr8 before you order your parts. My bolt took a week or so to come in.

And good luck! Forewarned is forearmed, as they used to say.

Even though I only have two arms..

No doubt! I'll order a bolt up just in case. Headed to Ireland in another week on a 3 week vacay, so I'll hit up the spring when I get back. It won't be in until next week anyways.

Excellent! (I mean about the holiday).

Maybe catch up with the conversation on Antihero's 'Around the World..' thread in Media, if you haven't already.

And have an excellent time! Not hard in that country..

Just a FYI for everyone: Motomfg is no longer making the wet clutch basket holder tool. There is an eBay seller in the UK that makes one and it's about $100 to buy and ship.

Ok, here are some of my experience to add:

1) My clutch basket but needed a 30mm socket.
2) The big washer in the clutch hub was very tight on the shaft. Both removing and installing required some extra persuasion.

Waiting on clutch basket holder to finish the install. If you have a Yoyodyne slipper, you won't have some of the same large bands or washers that chuck pulled off last before the basket comes out. At least mine didn't, lol.

Great instructions chuck! You're invaluable!

Waiting on the one from the UK but I needed this buttoned up this weekend, so put bike in gear, held rear brake and torqued it to 88 ft lbs (120 Newton) and bam, no tool needed
