If the nut on the timing side in the gearbox is loose, I think the clutch won't operate right, or that shaft will move around? If you put a new spring on the clutch basket, and everything works good you may be good to go. Depends on whether you want to pull the gearbox covers off or not. Might be worth a look if you've got the inclination.
Yeah, 40 ft/lb on the clutch nut with blue locktite.
I always use heat from the ray gun on the drive sprocket, that helps it come off.
I had the clutch all back together once and when I went to kick it over the kicker would slip and I would hear something grind part way throught the kick. It was more of a finer sounding grind...almost like some kind of splines slipping. I just tried kicking it while putting some pressure on the rear wheel (it's up on the centerstand) and I couldn't force it to slip??? Maybe I wasn't getting enough pressure holding the rear wheel back? I was ready to rip into the gear box, but it seems to shift smoothly through the gears statically, no unusual noises.
When I first took the primamry cover off the primary chain was banjo tight I think I am going to replace the clutch hub bearing, it feels a little notchy.
