I don't want to get into another quiet clutch argument here. :rolleyes: Just a quick question. I replaced my slave cylinder with an Evo from Desmotimes. I then decided to take a look at my clutch. I found my clearance between the basket and clutch plates to be excessive. I could fit nearly 2 pennies in between the slots and the pressure plate could rotate back and forth a lot. So I ordered the "Full Monty". I am looking forward to this upgrade and also plan on doing the "quiet clutch" mod using 2 old friction plates in the bottom of the basket.

:confused: My question is, what is the size of the nut holding the hub in place? I think it might be 32mm? I will need a new socket if that is the case, but I wanted to make sure before I purchase the wrong size.

I will post pics of the process once I get started to help anyone else with questions. I am currently TAD, and will be home the second week of June to complete my mods.

Also, I would like to give a shout out to Desmotimes for their service and parts. I have already completed the following mods:

Evo Slave (very nice part, no road test yet, lever pull is noticeably easier)
Billet caps on brake and clutch reservoirs (looks and functionality)
Dot 5.1 fluid (no tests yet, but the fluid definitely needed replacement)
Case saver insert (which I did have to Dremel due to clearance on my engine case)
Vented front sprocket cover (Easy sprocket inspection and good looks)

Just thought of one other question. I need to get some torque wrenches to do more of my own maintenance. Will a 20-200 in/lbs and a 10-80 ft/lbs take care of my most of my needs?

Thanks for everyone's help.

As for nut size, I just can't remember. It's 32mm I believe though. I've done it a few times and hopefully you also got a clutch hub holding tool.:)
As for torque wrenches, 20-200 ft lbs will fill the bill. Less than 20 my personal technique is just to hand tighten...like the 6 ft lb torque for the 6 clutch hub spring bolts.

What's this about putting old pressure plates in the clutch? My ST2 clutch is starting to slip, so I'm researching a replacement. (if it's not just an adjustment)

Since I mentioned it, the "quiet clutch" mod is what I am talking about. Here are the links to the mod explaining the process. Basically the first couple of plates (nearest the engine case) are replaced with old friction plates for smoother, quieter operation.

Here are some discussions about the mod:

Here is a link to the actual procedure:
