    Default Broken clutch splines

    I'm almost too embarrassed to post this...so I'm tearing my bike down to get it hard tailed and I kinda sorta fucking destroyed my clutch...yes I know it's fucking bad but I got to get this bad Larry out so I can replace it. Can any of you wizards help me out and tell me what I gotta do to get it out of my primary?...

    Gotta shove the tool down to the base of the studs or you will bend them, or.....

    Best quick solution, put the puller on the studs that are left and weld a nut on top of each. Then pull the hub and cut the puller off. You will need a new hub anyway.

    Now you know why there is so many holes in the tool............... But it looks like you got the nut off.................. So it did work........

    There is an easier way.......

    Now to get the hub off ....

    Welding nuts to the remaining studs and using the puller just may be the ticket as long as the puller has room to work..

    Heat will work also .... By warming the hub up and having a Buddy with two Lady's Foot pry bars between the hub and inner primary case (Don't get Popeye'd with the amount of force with those pry-bars) and reinstalling the clutch hub nut back on (Not all the way) take a piece of hard-wood and a hammer to the nut... The hub should jump right off ..

    Do both at once. The methods don't interfere with and do complement each other! Pry bars reduce the force needed on the puller which could avoid breaking the remaining studs. The puller reduces the force you must apply to the inner primary casting via the heels of the pry bars.

    Weld the nuts and use lady's foot bars (3 piece sets are common) with plenty of heat. [/B] Once set the puller maintains tension freeing you to pry on the bars while shocking the puller with a hammer.

    If you can get a proper torch (common propane torches suck) like an acetylene-air or oxy-acetylene you can put more heat to the hub much more quickly. If not, the largest nozzle you can hang off a common torch may have to do.

    I would slide a piece of tubing over the transmission shaft end to protect it whatever you do. I've done the welded nut method due to wasted threads (not wasted by me!) but the ladys foot (I fucking love that prybar style after using them for alignment bars) method Dragstews mentions should work well and it's basically what those bars are for. They're a classic for shifting shaft mounted parts where a puller isn't suitable.

    Good to know the Lowbrow tool is tough. Send them a photo, maybe you'll get some swag.

    This whole pry bar thing has me very uneasy. Do it the way Jim said period.
    Like Tattoo said "How the fuck did you even do that ????".
    If he's capable of that he's definitely capable of breaking the case with a pry bar.

    did you even read in you thread about the lowbrow tool you asked about me saying you can make a good clutch tool out of an old plate and bolting a handle to it? It would have at least saved money in this mess.

    If you don't have access to air you need to invest in an electric impact gun............ They are GREAT for taking things off and should NEVER be used to put something on with.............

    Exactly my train of thought.

    I did know it was reverse thread but I tried taking it off with a breaker bar first, I ended up damaging the threaded fingers that way. I didn't have an air compressor or gun at that time. I eventually got out my DeWalt battery powdered impact and tried to get the nut off with that.

    At first it did not work and actually broke the drive trying to get it off...so I went back to the breaker bar....and then in a final attempt back to the DeWalt...which got th nut off.

    Luckly there was a swap this weekend and I grabbed a new clutch hub for 10$ so even though this was pretty embarrassing atleast it only costed $10.

    I'm going to have a buddy weld nuts onto the broken hub and help me get it off.
