400EX Outer Clutch Basket Springs

Recommended Posts

Just rebuilt a 400ex and found out, once I took the outer clutch basket off, that the springs on the backside of it are loose and can move freely inside the hub assembly itself.  This, to the best of my knowledge, isn't normal but what might this cause in regard to clutch issues?  Is it still useable or should I find a replacement?IMG_3201.jpg

These are the little springs I am talking about.

I just took one apart because it had what sounded like a hellacious valve train/timing chain rattle.  Turns out that this is the problem.  The springs will rattle and the noise passes through the basket and into the crank gear and right up the timing chain.
