Slipper on the way, trying to get everything lined up so I don't have any surprises or last minute parts runs.

I think I have most everything, but not sure about the size of the nut holding in the clutch...anyone know what size it is?

Also, anyone that has done this already...any tips or advice? Things you would do different the second time around?

Thanks and appreciate the advice.

It's a piece of cake, though I do recommend buying a basket holding tool, that will save you much grief.

The nut is a 20mm and suggested tightening is 120NM. You should throw some waterproof grease on it as well.

The slipper goes in hub first, but be careful not to twist it because people have had problems with the ball bearings falling out! Once hub is installed and tightened down, the plates go on the same way they came off and then pressure plate.

The right side engine cover will need Three Bond 1211 sealant around the outside edge to prevent leaking.

Other then that, it's a pice of cake on the wet clutch machines. :)

Thanks Dutch...slipper will be here tomorrow...glad I didn't buy the 20mm socket yet

CorseRob, hate to do this to ya, but the clutch nut on my 2009 848 is a 27mm... just checked one of my recent videos.

Follow Dutch's advice, he's always pointing me in the right direction. To add to what he already said regarding the cover coming off, if it's really stuck on there I use the small wooden handle of a wire brush to insert in to the oil fill cap hole to help get some leverage to work it loose. You could use a small plastic handled screwdriver or something similar, as well. DO NOT put any thing in there that can damage the threads, they're pretty fragile!

My Factory Pro shift kit install video covers the process in step-by-step detail, even though a clutch replacement wasn't part of that project.

Let me know if you need the link...

Thanks guys...Appreciate the advice.

I guess the best thing is going to be to pick up the large set of impact sockets...think it goes from 20 to 30.

Got the Ducabike slipper. Got a good deal from Belissimoto on the clear cover and picked up the slipper at the same time...and Lyle is loaning me his clutch basket tool too.

I can do this...just have to make sure I take my time...at least that's what I keep telling myself.

I used Kawabond...they're all the same shit, just different name.

One other thing to note, in case it's the same for 848s as it is for 1198s, the bushing that's on the input shaft...it's suppose to slide out easily, but some can get stuck and they're a bitch to get out. I had that problem with mine. It was quite frustrating. Just a heads up in case you run into that same issue.
