The bike runs and shifts great but the diameter looks to be just larger than a nickle as you said. would it still shift properly with a shim missing?

I hope you guys are right, that would be an easy fix. Is 8,400 mi. about when they crap out?

Yeah, I think I lost two or three at about 6k or so. And yeah it'll shift fine. If you really pay attention I bet it lurches on you a little if you try to do fine clutch control.

Clutch would work fine untill more of the washers failed. Time to pull the covers and do some exploration...

Why would some bikes have washers fail at an earlier mileage than others? My bike has 15000 but many were road, and I'm a wuss offload :) ...

P.S. Could someone point me to the source for those improved washers.
I should add this to index and get some for my bike.

I think you may have answered your own question there.

I'd have had the right hand side cover off for a look in less time than it took to type the original post...
Just trying to pinpoint where to start, clutch cover coming off today.

OK, just an update. You guy's were right, clutch spring washers. All were intact even 1/2 of the one that I found. Glad it didn't find its way into the transmission. Looks like I will be contacting Indy. Thanks for all your help in pinpointing this problem.

Yup, mine started spitting them around the same miles as you. Nobody knew what they were back then and I didn't either, there wasn't a fix for it either. Glad Indy figured it out for us.

Not about to read this whole thread. Is a pristine 09 610 with 5000 easy miles worth $5200? Has at least $800 in accessories. Thanks.

Dang... is that a symptom? Mine does that but it's too hot out for the next couple of months to work on it. I guess I had my suspicions though, as I've been eye-balling a Rekluse. But... the basket is not one of the parts replaced. I'm kicking around the idea of replacing the 610 basket (or whatever it's called) with one from a 510. That's supposed to work.

You don't need to read this thread to get a sense of whether that's a good deal that you can feel good about. Do you like the bike? Is it mostly what you want in a bike? Do you have the money? If so, then buy it, if not, then keep looking. Things are worth what you are willing to pay for them.

I'm not trying to be a smart-ass, I'm just posting what I think is a reminder of why we buy bikes. They are not investments, they are tools to help make us feel good.

It may well be worth it to someone. The value of the bike is established by whatever the actual sales price ends up being. For that transaction. On that day. At that hour.
