89 cr250 clutch problem figure this out!

Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

Just a question about the 89 cr250 clutch

 

I purchased this one with a clutch problem.

it was dragging and slipping too

took cover off and saw a snapped off spring turret (see photo)

somebody tried to glue it back on ha ha

 

I got a replacement clutch hub.

 

when i tried to remove the old center i realised it was very stiff and not freely spinning independant of the basket

 

I had to use extreme force to undo the 27mm center nut ( 3 foot tube extending on the ratchet)

 

I am confused as to how the hub is spaced to be independant of the basket.

 

the inner basket sleeve on the shaft  is virtually flush with the basket, then I just have one thick washer between the basket and the clutch center.

but this washer is virtually resting on the basket, so how does this setup keep the basket away from the center clutch when tight???

 

I noticed on all the diagrams there seems to be an aditional washer (see image, in red circle)

 

I do not have 2 washers only one fairly thick one.

 

I would like to see if anyone here has experience of the 89 clutch (i thin 89 - 91 are the same)

 

do you have 2 washers?

why is mine just bolting up and joining the center to the basket??

The way I read the fiech is # 20 is a replacement for #6.

 #6 has been discontinued...so, yes there should only be one washer in there...a #20

OK thanks

 

It does seem like tightening the center nut just clamps the clutch hub to the basket, even with that washer as there is such a small amount of the inner sleeve petruding

through the basket. maybe im getting confused about how this thing works ha ha

Is there a torque setting for the center nut?

Some baskets and inner hubs will drag if it's tightened too much...I was experiencing that on my 01 with the stock hub, but not the Hinson.

If it drags when properly torqued you may have some play in the shaft or a worn bearing.

If the rub is not too bad you may be able to do a little sanding on the inside of the basket or hub where it's rubbing.

Ok thanks Ill set it up and see if its stiff

I am aware that the nut was tightened to excess when i removed it.

hopefully that was the cause.

if not yea a job for the grinding paste

cheers
