View Full Version : Clutch Push Rods

03-19-2007, 09:42 PM
I am replacing a front sprocket cover due to damage from the chain coming off. The push rods that the clutch actuator engages should they be smooth edged facing each other or should they be grooved and fit like a z where they meet? I can't find any schematics showing detail in depth.

Thanks for the help as always.

I'm not getting the question.
Did Spedee's post help?

Actually that was the same schematic I found on bikebandits web site, but what it does not show is a close up of the pin rods where they meet together in the middle when the clutch is engaged. I'm not sure if the chain has damaged them because they are not smooth edged ao that is the design to be Z shaped on the end...

Well the rod attached to the case goes into a seal, you shouldn't be able to see the clutch end of that rod.

I don't think anything should be a Z...

me neither,not really sure what part your talking about. I just replaced mine 2 days ago. Everything is real smooth and unless you take the oil seal out you cant see the where the clutch rod goes against!

It is part 19 and 20, one pin goes inside the crankcase and the other inside the actuator inside the cover then once assembled they meet in the middle. I hope this helps.

Part # 19 in sealed inside an oil seal and should not have come out or be taken out unless you are replacing that seal (21).

With the chain flying off, you should not have to change 21, so you should not have to get at 19.

20 just stickes in the hole, and its ALL smooth........just a stainless rod with rounded off ends
