Basket Case?
« on: June 10, 2012, 08:16:01 am »
Anyone with a TE610 or 510 over 12-15000km checked their clutch basket for the 'washer wear' syndrome? Often reported on ADVRider and Husky Cafe.

When I took my bike in for the 10,000 k service I asked them to check - they said it was fine.

Ok - I see some are saying if they have 10 000 miles or so .... 16 000 odd kms I guess so probably a while before I look. Just do not like the look of those pieces of washer that float around  ??? Maybe I get the washers anyway while available...

I had to replace mine at +- 20 000 kms. I saw some debris when I cleaned the screens while changing the oil - telltale sign that you need to replace. (2006 TE 610)
KDX200 gone
YZ 250 gone
Husky TE610 one left

Ja that is what I believe - will keep an eye on i t... have the tutorial and will soon have the custom washers for later.  :thumleft:

I took my casing off to check this for myself during an oil change this weekend. (My odo reading is on 13k odd).

I had to borrow a dentists mirror to see behind the back of the clutch.  I didn't want to turn the motor because then I would have issues aligning the crank shaft notch with the oil pump and thus risk breaking the crankshaft when closing the casing.

I could see two of the springs.

The washer on the one side of both the springs was about a third of the thickness of the other (probably more wear on one side due to drive rotation direction).

The thin side was about 1mm while the other side was 3-4mm.

I could see no damage to the clutch plate or anything, but those washers are clearly wearing.

There were a few very small bits (2mm or so) in the main oil screen.  Nothing alarming but clearly its those washers wearing.

So its probably getting close to time to replace them.

Where does one get replacements and should one get super hard material and then have the clutch plate/spring wear instead?

Other than that its pristine in there  :thumleft:

AlanB - there is guy in the States that makes the hardened custom replacement ones. I have spoken with him and he will send a set for U$D80 including postage (and mark value at $25). Maybe if there are a number of us that want we can get some discount? I am prepared to order and pay Paypal. While I do not think I need immediatly will inevitably use them and think I should get while available (you do not want to replace with OEM cheese ones). One still needs to order the OEM rivets - maybe we can also order in matching number from Primrose ?

Good idea.

Can you set this up?  I would like to do it within a month or so, I dont want to wait until they start disintegrating.

Would really appreciate it.

Sure. 

Any other takers - let me know before week end.

Two sets on their way from USA (alanB and me) and rivets on order from Primrose. Preventative maintenance the way to go here IMHO.

OK After sitting with all the parts for a few weeks and not making up my mind about whether I was going to try and do this myself (which I would have preferred) or whether I would take it in to Primrose, I finally decided that it would take too long for me to get to it.

After a long chat with Shane I decided that he would do as good a job as I would, so I took it into him.  He sent the basket off to an engineering company for the riveting which was done yesterday and I popped in this morning to have a look at it before its all assembled again.



Looks OK.  Not as neat as the original but the rivets are well and truly riveted!

So thats that done.

I forgot the packet with the original buggered washers there that have now been replaced when I left.  None had failed yet but some were paper thin - so its just as well.

Also everything else looks in good shape in there so I'm happy  :thumleft:

Went for a great ride today after putting it all together again last night (I took the big tank off myself because the guys at Primrose wouldnt have done that before). 

The bike is going very well, could be my imagination but it seems to be going better than usual?

I had the valves checked (apparently they didnt need any setting) and replaced the plug while the tank was off.

I also sealed up the back of the silencer with silicon because it was blowing out of there a bit.

The clutch feels fine as well.

But for some reason the bike seems to be going very nice, pulling quite strongly throughout the range  :thumleft:
