  1. Has anyone drilled out their clutch basket to get more oil flow to their clutch plates? I am burning my plates very badly. What kind of oil are you using? I love crashing!
  2. I am thinking about drilling a couple of holes in the fingers of my clutch basket to help oil circulate and hopefully stop the bike from creeping forward while I have the clutch in. I have the clutch adjusted with free play and have also done the washer fix, I can actually ride around with the clutch in at times!!! The thing I am wondering is, how many holes should I be drilling in each finger, what diameter should each hole be and where is the best place. I remember seeing a picture before, but can’t find it. Any input would be great. I assume, with only a few holes in each finger the overall strength will not be reduced? Thanks.
  3. I finally have the parts on order to replace the plates/springs in my 450 clutch with those of the 02 426. There were some posts going around about drilling oil passages in the clutch basket so oil could flow to these outer plates, but I cannot find them. Does any one have any pictures or instruction on size, location, and quantity of holes to drill. Is the drilling an alternate fix to replacing the parts or should be be in addition to?
  4. Everything went smoothly, I added the 5 washers to the towers while I was drilling the basket. Lever pull seemed only slightly easier than I've been used to. With bike running on a crate, shifted into gear with clutch lever pulled, and it went into gear, but the clutch does not appear to engage or disengage. Rechecking the steps in the manual, I was reminded that I did not disconnect the "clutch cable on the engine side". I didn't (during disassemly) because I just didn't think it would matter. DID IT? Now, with clutch cable disconnected at push lever shaft and pivoting the shaft with my hand and persuader (channel locks) against the tension of the spring, it appears to be working fine. I could use some advice from an individual that has direct knowledge of what to do next. Otherwise, I will lay her over, open up the clutch, take everything back apart (bending that washer over is sure a pain), and and re-assemble.
  5. Have a yz250 and noticed a tiny bit of play between the clutch basket and main gear. Called a shop a year ago asking if they could somehow re-rivet them. Guy told me a small bit of play is normal. I trying peening them myself with a sledge. No luck. Wonder if i could drill them out and use the proper bolts like an aftermarket clutch basket would use? Or was the mechanic i spoke to correct that a small amount of play is nothing to stress about?
  6. Well after toasting my stock basket I bought a Hinson basket.I read the great article that CBDaddy wrote on changing the basket.My question is how hard is it to drill the 3 rivits out of the basket.Also when I drill them out should I use a drill bit the same size or should I use a bit a little smaller.I know I should center punch the rivet before I drill it.I have a drill press here so that should make it alittle easier to do. Thanks, Austin
  7. Angle, Did you take the clutch basket out to do the drilling or? Was it hard to do or need any special tools? It would be cheaper to drill out instead of purchasing a new clutch basket. Thanks for your response. mx813
  8. The clutch after using a dremmel tool to smooth basket and inner grooves. I also drilled the basket for better lubrication as in after market baskets.
  9. Here is the mod for drilling the clutch hub. www.thumperfaq.com/clutch_mods.htm#Drill My clutch problems finally went away when I put in a hinson basket. The hinson basket has large "windows" on the fingers to allow better oil flow so I did not drill the clutch hub as I had planned to do when I had it apart.
  10. Have any of you drilled the stock clutch basket to increase oil flow to reduce clutch fade?
  11. I’m running maxima mtl80. When shopping baskets keep the gear in mind. I had to drill out the hardware holding the back gear to the basket to my new Hinson basket. A drill press makes the task easy but still doable with a drill. Sounds like a basket and outer clutch case and you back in business.
  12. Hello anybody tried to drill holes on the fingers on the clutch basket,to get more oil between the clutch/steelplates.
  13. Clutch basket was heavily drilled, new T3 clutch cable, new ARC-X levers......now the clutch feels like a 125 !!
  14. I am referring to the clutch hub and basket hole drilling modifications, not the spring shiming.
  15. I had the same problem and replaced the OEM clutch and plates. Kept the hub and basket. But inspect your basket for any notches. I also removed the clutch boss and drilled additional holes like the mod described here: http://www.thumperfaq.com/clutch_mods.htm#Drill Now it's perfect.
  16. After market clutch baskets do not seem to come with gears. Are the gears from an OEM basket removable? If so, how? A press or drill? Would the OEM gear then press or screw on the new basket?
  17. You will also have to drill out the stock basket for the gear and the clutch cushions/rubbers to swap it over to the wiseco basket. Buy new cushions if you can.
  18. I drilled 15 holes opposite the original 15 in the clutch "hub" not basket. Results were good
  19. Has anyone tried drilling holes into the clutch basket to enable more oil flow to the clutch plates ? If so, any success, or no change in clutch performance ? Michael
  20. I dont mean removing the outer clutch basket from the engine, I am talking once you get the clutch basket off, and you buy a new basket, the aftermarket baskets dont come with the gear and everything attached to the basket of the basket itself. People have told me you have to use a drill and I have heard other things.
  21. Its usually grooves in the clutch-basket. Mare sure you have freeplay so the clutch isnt dragging. Theres also a mod to drill holes in the basket to get more oilflow, havent tried this yet tho'
  22. The Hinson clutch basket has phillips screws in the back of the plate by the primary gear where the stock Honda basket has rivets. The only way to get the dampers out of the stock basket is to drill the rivets out. Get an 03 basket or a Hinson.
  23. The holes are just drilled in between the splines to aid in oiling up your clutch plates. After market clutch baskets have these already pre-drilled. This mod would only compliment your clutch fix. How many holes you drill really depends, but you only need one or two or even every other groove drilled.
  24. I'm installing clutch basket tonight. I know to drill rivets but what about the gear. The directions say the gear must be pressed on to the gyt-r clutch basket. I don't have a press. Any suggestions? I reinstalled old basket and when I put the trust washer on it would fall off the splines before it would reach the clutch basket. Is that normal? help!!
  25. After doing a lot of research on this and asking a few local mechanics on this, here is what I found out. The clutch is nearly identical with the exception of the following, the clutch basket (gear riveted to the basket), the clutch springs, and clutch guide. Now from what I was told, the cast aluminum part of the clutch basket is identical on the 150 and the 230, it is the gear that is riveted to the basket as to the difference in the two. I was also told that if someone were to drill out the rivets on the 230 clutch basket they then could put their gear from the 230 onto the 150 Rev-Loc clutch basket as it is held on with flat head socket head cap screws and not rivets.
