Removing Husky 701 clutch cover


Recommended Posts

I see the 701 manual shows engine maintenance done with the engine on a stand.

How can I take the clutch cover off without removing the right footpeg/frame bracket which will mess with the swingarm pivot??? There's nothing in the manual and I don't want to cause an issue with the swingarm if I can find a work-around. ONE cover bolt is behind the footpeg! What a pain!

Thanks!

All the pics I found from those installing things like an aftermarket shift kit show the footpeg bracket removed. I don't think it will cause any issues with the pivot.

Installation was simple and straightforward. Lay the bike on its left side, remove the right side engine cover, replace the shift arm and springs, reinstall the engine cover, and go ride.

Oh! That pic is handy. I wasn't sure how it worked behind there. So, the bracket is just a support and the swingarm won't suddenly flop around. LOL.

Okay, thanks!!!

 

Wish I could do a shift spring while I'm in there, but I'm only looking for the source of all the metal in my engine oil....... 🙄

Here's another view but on a KTM 690. Just pull the Footpeg/brake pedal mount and move it out of the way. You don't need to totally remove it.

Tip: The clutch bolts are different lengths. Make sure you get them back in the right spots!!!

I know this is kinda old. But, shouldn’t that last plate be in the long slot, along with all the other plates in the basket?

I also posted this on SMJ to clarify your question, here's a print screen from the '19-20 SMC-R manual.

What’s very strange though. My bosses 2020 690 SMCR had all the plates lined up, in the same groove. I know that because we had to replace the clutch case and basket, from rock damage. Do you loose the slipper capabilities if they are all lined up?

Nope it should work just fine.  With the last one clocked one tooth would result in the tip of the fingers being more supported which might prolong the life of the basket.

My '20 is clocked one tooth as per manual.  Maybe your bosses was assembled on a Friday.. lol

Are you RS25 on Supermotojunkie?  Thanks again! I have a feeling my guy didn’t notice where they were when he took them out.
