1. I find out what that plate on the bottom of the engine casing is, remove it and take the strainer out.  More gunge and pieces of metal
2. And the reason why... the thrust bearing had disintegrated and pulled itself through the pressure plate.

Allround fucking happiness   :BangHead:

have you got any clutch at all or dragging or slipping. checck the press plate where pin goes throught some times it wears after all the km you have probablly done. and rememeber when you put the thrust washer back. bearings against the pin and not the the alloy plate. wil keep watching the thread while i am enjoying the LIONS whip vrystaat

Only got the bike the other day, but it has done a lt of kilo's. Clutch was OK, but did drag a bit and then it just gave in. We now know why

the plate has a sieve in there to stop the big pieces of broken valves etc ;D going up stream

The plate under the engine ? Sorted  :thumleft:

pull the plates out check them all, maybe rough up the plates they do glaze after years of use, but again do you have any clutch

The plates are fairly new and all looks good, but I will check them

Sit nou self met n probleem. Besig om my bike te herstel na my val. Ek kan nog nie buk en iets optel (ribbes te seer )
Terwyl ek nou karring  toe strip ek n bout in die frame. Nou is dit n helse gesukkel om regte helicoil en tap te kry en ek wil al gery het Jeffreys toe.
Moerse frustrasie. Myne is darem nie so ernstig soos joune nie so sterkte en geduld daar. Groot vrees nou natuurlik waar het daai stukkies metal oral gaan draai   :eek7:

Thanks Subie, met die ou bikes is dit maar wat 'n ou kry. Ek het net gehoop ek sou bietjie langer kon ry voor ek begin oor bou.

Gerald, what do you mean here " and rememeber when you put the thrust washer back. bearings against the pin and not the the alloy plate."

On the schematics I have it only shows the rack and bearing, no thrust washer. So the bearing would go on the rack and sit directly against the pressure plate. http://www.cmsnl.com/suzuki-dr750-1989-suk_model13272/partslist/FIG-16.html#results

That slightly domed steel washer is the thrust washer. The one you called a seal.
Look for a shooting star and see Lynda's trail and remember all the great places you shared with her,she will never forget what she shared with you and will show you that in every starry night .

I went and looked and it seems so. This is what the bearing looks like.  That's why we were only left with the cage. And we have the specs

Any one have a loose pressure plate ? I need to see what the inside looks like.

1. Is there a recess where the bearing fits ?
2. The depth of the recess ?
3. The diameter of the hole the the release pin(rack) goes through ?
4. The diameter of the recessed hole that the bearing fits into ?

I need to have this fixed
