Just bought a 2012 SFS she's only 1 months and 3 weeks old. I CAN'T REMOVE E CLUTCH COVER. I've remove the necessary screws holding the cover but its like stuck to the case. There's a rubber gasket which i assume is holding up. I tried to knock, pull, twist but it still wun come off. Is this normal or do I have to really use strength or a specific tool to separate e cover from the rubber gasket.

Your help is much appreciated.

the stock clutch cover might have gotten stuck with the rubber gasket..you can use a rubber mallet to tap around the edges and eventually it will come off...no special tools needed..hope this helps

It might sound silly but did you make sure to remove all the screws? I just changed my cover a few weeks ago and it came off easy.

dont change it. stock is nice. open is so 90's
I'm glad I'm stuck in the 90's with most others around here with vented clutch covers and my loud ass clutch. That's how it was meant to be from the factory if it weren't for BS regulations. Clacky clack clack. Pure music.

+1. I love it when people ask "is it supposed to sound like that". And I say " yes, that's the sound It means business"

I don't have a rubber mallet but will do with something similar, just afraid that I'll smash it too hard hahaha......

Then might as well get the SF848, I can save SGD$10,000 LOL......

Yup if I remember correctly there are 3 or 4 screws holding the cover I tried but can't remove, I remove ALL the screws still can't remove. Its literally stick to the case :(

Should be 4 screws. There are 2 more around the cover, but they don't actually hold the cover on.
