Pressure plate bolt not coming out

Recommended Posts

i went to remove the clutch on my 1992 KX250 and 4 of the 5 bolts came right out but the last one just spins and spins but wont come out. how the hell do i get the dang thing out?

sounds to me like you one: either stripped the inner hub or two: broke the inner hub. either way, you will need a new inner hub. if its striped and not coming out, you could try to wedge the washer with a screw driver and try to back the bolt out. if you cant get a screw driver in there, you may actually have to break it to get it out. but thats my guess. never seen a clutch spring bolt strip out before.

well i finally got the bolt out. i had to wedge a screwdriver in the spring and hit it with the impact gun. and to my surprise this is what i found.

the previous owner broke the stud off and just threaded a bolt through the other side of the hub to hold it on. this apparently is what caused my clutch to not disengage
