I fudge up the pictures on that photo hosting site, I'm going to read the how to a bit more tonight. But good news, I filed down the burrs and tried making it as smooth as possible, I'm turning in for the night because I'm a wimp and I am getting cold(its like 68 degrees) anyways, I tested putting the plates in and I almost fit the entire 9 friction 8 steel plates. I had one left over of each but the first time I tried it I could only get about half that number in so tomorrow I am supposed to borrow a dremmel and it will be light out so I hope to get them all in. I'm excited that I just might fix the problem. Oh and when I went to remove all the plates they all came out with ease, so that's what a clutch basket is suppose to be like! The cynic that I am wonders how I will get the primary back on with the chain tensioner not loosened as well as I never was able to crack that darn clutch adjuster on the cable. Oh I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there. Another plus was I had been wanting to paint the primary cover so here's my chance with the ol bbq high heat spray paint. Lastly, It's weird when I went to roll back the bike to move the basket(as if I could ever lift the back tire up), the dummy light said I wasn't in neutral yet I was on an incline and was still able to roll back. My light used to always be on when not in gear, is that something I should be concerned over? I know I know get out my service manual. Thanks again

Is there anyone who lives close (ish) and go help get these nuts/adjusters loose for Lisa?

My apologies, i should have said put the 2nd spanner (on the jamb nut) at 20-25 minutes to the hour and not past the hour!

No plate in the clutch mean natural neutral. It's the clutch that give friction so the engine brake or power the rear wheel.

Here's a video showing the idea suggested by 'harley506d' --- It is showing two nuts which is equivalent to your adjuster...

Breaking A Double Nut


Also, get yourself a piece of steel tubing (at a hardware store) to put over the end of your socket wrench to use as a cheater bar...

Cheater Bars



It will be important to break loose that Primary Chain Adjuster so you can back it off & properly get the Primary Cover reset in place before tightening it down - Then readjust the tension on the chain using the adjuster & lock it down again...

It will also be necessary to get the cable backed off to get the clutch initial adjustment correctly set.

Well I still dont know how to post pics because I'm on my cell phone but today I was able to get all 9 friction and all 8 steel plates in the clutch basket and got the steel plate and diaphragm on there with that damn snap ring holding it all in place. But as for the clutch cable, I noticed that the bolt snapped in half where you connect it to the primary cover so to.orrow morning I'm running to harley to get a new clutch cable and I know how to install that so hopefully the bike will be running. Funny when I got all the plates in the bike is in gear I was able to have someone move it earlier but now I'm in a possible ticket zone, hopefully the parking meter person will let me slide. Parking in downtown long beach sucks. As for that adjuster nut, with a brand new cable I doubt it will be rusted shut. I am worried to what the clutch will be like, as long as it works I won't mind. Thanks again and I will post some before and after photos of the carnage that dumb spring plate did and how to fix it.
Just wait until I decide to upgrade to 883 to become a 1200.
