loose clutch basket nut, 05.5 950 adv

just a heads up, since I've seen a lot of issues with clutches on here. The last 4 days of my trip I've been having a lot of clutch drag issues and a kind of unpredictable engagement. I thought there was an issue with the slave, but after taking everything apart on the side of the road and checking the clutch plates, it turned out that the big center nut on the clutch basket was hanging on by about one turn. I tightened it up as best as possible with a crescent wrench for now, but that cured all of my problems. If you're having issues, its a pretty easy thing to check. Torque spec is 130 NM.

I would suspect it was never tightened correctly in the first place. Removing um is normally the issue.

I would be stunned if that were the case, considering its got 60k moles on it and waited until now to come loose. Though I guess I previous owner may have done something in there and not done it up right again.

I had the same problem on mine a few years back. Same year, while I was on a trip in Scotland. Managed to tighten it up with a wrench and limped to a garage where they lent me a bar and some loctite. I did the job and torqued it up when we got home.
