Hefty previous owner and his hefty wife used to ride the DR650 two up around town quite frequently. Wasn't until I was off-roading an Arkansas forest trail that I sensed a slight amount of slippage, so I ordered an EBC Heavy Duty clutch. Finally got around to tearing into it and so far everything is going well. After dumping the oil and removing the footpeg and brake pedal, I took off the oil pipe from the cooler and lifted off the slave clutch lever. Then I removed all the 8mm bolts holding on the clutch cover. A little prying with a large screwdriver and the cover came right off and without tearing the paper gasket. As one who cut his teeth tearing apart Triumph 650's, I know that paper gaskets are totally worthless anyway and will put the cover back on with silicone as science intended. Interesting to note that the new EBC friction plates are pretty much identical to the stockers except that the size of each little friction pad is larger. More friction area = more traction on the pressure plates; good. BTW, the stockers don't appear to be burnt or smelly and are not bald so this whole exercise may have been unnecessary. Oh well. Also interesting is the comparison between the EBC Heavy Duty clutch springs and the stockers. The stockers have almost 7 turns while the EBC's have only 6, and they both seem to be identical in height. I can see no obvious difference in the diameter of the spring materials. Certainly not what I was expecting. Perhaps more coils and a thicker material on the Heavy Duty springs would make more sense to me. It is now 90F (probably 100F in my garage) and I am soaking the new plates in oil, so it is a good time to sit in the AC and pat myself on the back for not totally f'ing something up. Tomorrow morning will be cooler and then I can put it all back together. Then I'll review the finished product. If anyone has some torque specs for all the involved fasteners handy, I'd appreciate you passing that info along, otherwise I'll just use a generic chart and wing it. I think some Locktite could be used in a couple of spots, too.
