Pissed pumpkin basket?

There is no fluid loss or feel loss at the lever and it seems to function well except when hammered repeatedly. So... most of the time on the ST.
Will pull the clutch and check inner, outer and plates for scoring, groves and sharp edges.

One of many informative bits from a boogle search.
Seems straight forward enough and I have the service disk.


I sure hope everyone will get a chance to do some riding this weeee!kend. Looks like it'll be a beauty!

The Hinson baskets are really nice, if you want an auto go ahead and pop for the full setup with a new basket.

Thanks guys. Ill be happy enough to have it working better at this point.

Speedo is fixed on the EXC.
Anyone know the best place to get a front brake cylinder?

Screws are stuck in the top of this one, and I don't know how bad I'll fawk it up if I drill the top off of them.

did you try the good old trick of putting the screw driver in the screw and smack the end of the screw driver with a dead blow to knock em loose? Its the dreaded steel bolt corroding in an aluminum housing. Smack it a few times it might pop loose.

I may know a guy

I've done the exact same thing and was able to just drilled the top off, they taper down in so just keep it dead center and go easy. Or try OnaXR's trick, take a small punch and see if you can bite the edge of one of groves and give it slight taps to encourage counterclockwise.

Yea, I smacked the screwdriver more than a few times

Figured it would pop them loose right away, always works on the other junk here.

My granddad used to have a tool, I don't recall what the name of it was, but it was a screw driver that would hit with a hammer and when you would hit it, it would twist, it was like an impact screwdriver or something. I'm thinking it was something like this http://www.harborfreight.com/impact-...ase-37530.html
If that didn't work, I'd drill them out carefully and try to leave as much on there as you can. I have drilled them out before successfully.

I had one of those, it was the quickest and most efficient way to ruin the top of a screw I've ever seen.
I think it probably resides in the river somewhere behind my house now.

Probably worked great back when the screws and driver bits were made from good steel.

hahaha! Trying to remember some other tricks. I hate those bolts just for the record. I'm thinking i'd just drill it. Maybe drill down in with a small bit in the center then a large bit to cut the head off, then use an easy out in the small hole you drilled first. or just use pliers if enough is left to grab ahold of. But removing the big screw head will reduce your static friction a good bit.
