While I was riding this week my clutch lever suddenly became very hard to pull and would stick a moment after releasing. It turned out that the bottom of the clutch perch had cracked loose.

Now I need to decide if I should replace it with a stock clutch perch, or if I should try some fancy-dancy aftermarket perch. Has anyone replaced their stock clutch perch before?

I remember a lot of interest when I took this tank off the bike. Finally listing it in the classifieds.

If you want real fancy, then the works Connection Perch range is pretty much as good as you get. Bearings in the lever pivot, nylon slip spacers to reduce risk of snapping in a crash and on the fly clutch adjustment dial. Just make sure you get the right one that has the decomp lever integrated. XRs only has the correct one for the XRR.

Hope this helps!

question for anybody that has had their swingarm off: when i pulled the swingarm bolt out, the swingarm was free to move about, i was under the impression that the "special tool" was required to remove the special castle bolts what are some thoughts on this??

You got the swing arm bolt off or need the tools? You can make your own tools with some sockets and a grinder/dremmel.

Easy as pie.

It will come out without the special tools. You need them to put it alll back together correctly.

Also, looking at your chain's eating marks in the swinger, you're not related to oztrayan Sean-O aren't you?

The internal castle nut holds the swing arm, the external castle nut locks the internal one. This should hold the swingarm in place without the bolt being inserted.

This is my swingarm, looks similar to both yours and Sean-O's. They are easily repaired.

Guys,

got a Q: anyone knows of or has SW for drawing wiring diagrams?
Free intuitive stuff if at all possible please, and the use of colours would help a lot. I'm only looking for a picture, not simulations or why.
Anyone?

The swingarm bolt came out, and the swingarm dropped down, i was expecting to have to back out the castle bolts with the homemade tools.
