I know when we did my Marauder clutch spring replacement, the bolts that held the chrome engine/clutch cover on were 2 diff. lengths, and HAD to be replaced in the same holes.

Thankfully I had read up on it, and was given a quick hint that before removing the new gasket from the package, take a sharpie and trace the gasket on the pkg. cardboard, and when removing the bolts from the clutch cover, insert them in the cardboard in the same holes you removed them from the cover. That way, you'll be sure to put the same bolts back in the same holes.

good pictorial. Thanks!
ya keep track of were the bolts for the cover came from.

Clutch parts

Great post do you have any info on tourqe specs on the bolts, cover and spring bolts, also did you use oem springs and clutch plates or are there better after market parts. I have the DJ drive and I have to slip the clutch a bit when riding 2 up, as a result I have a flat spot when I let the clutch out so I will be doing this mod this winter.

Thanks for any info

It is my understanding that the standard Barnett springs exceed OEM.

I just wanted to thank the guys who put this thread together. I just did the clutch on my 2005 C50 and it was the easiest thing you could do following your instructions. I did use the barnett kit which i found for around 130$ and it works great. The springs do feel slightly stiffer at the clutch lever and it engages nicely.

Glad I saw this one, the pics don't make the process look as imposing as I feared it will be. Noticing a bit of clutch slippage recently when I really hammer the throttle getting on the freeway. Thanks for the step-by-step!

Why do some people expect an answer to a rhetorical question?
