    Hey guys, I am trying to fix this clutch but I have no clue what kind it is or where to get replacement parts. Its an early 5 speed for an FXR, any ideas? Click image for larger version.

    Need to show a clear/close photo of the transmission main-shaft area where the "key-way" was cut into it......but for right now......you are either going to need a clutch-hub...….or:

    ….. this may be a good time to think about "up-grading" the transmission main-shaft to the later splined main-shaft and newer clutch-hub.
    If you have to replace the major parts......up-grade to the newer/splined shaft and hub.

    I'm looking at an 83-84 FXR parts book and that clutch isn't stock. The hub is clearly aftermarket (note the steel towers and milled slots in the hub) AND is designed for custom aftermarket clutch plates.

    I wouldn't bother trying to find another hub and fucking around with R&I'ing it into that basket because I'd be condemned to hunting weird clutch plates probably long out of production.

    Post a clear brightly lit photo of your transmission shaft (which based on the trashed hub I suspect is damaged) and one of the opposite side of the transmission showing the end cover as "early" has no meaning and specific info helps us help you and we don't know what other parts the previous owner swapped out!

    I'd replace the transmission internals and clutch with a later spline shaft takeout (cheap and easy vs buying a new Andrews mainshaft). Ring gears vary but they bolt onto the later clutches (after drilling out the rivets) so no big deal to match up if you want a low cost solution.

    What to do depends on what parts you have handy, budget, desires and how you intend to use the motorcycle. What year is the bike or is this just a loose transmission? Tell us a lot more about what you have to help us help you.

    Good link (not mine) for the factory 1984-1990 FXR service manual. If you own an FXR it is wise to get ALL the books earlier and later. It's 211 megs and a quality scan.

    Considering a swap between my 1990 FXR for a 1988 FXR with lower miles.

    I know there have been some improvements between 88 and 90, like in the trans, clutch and starter, but still can't decide what to do, a lower miles engine is tempting, but it is worth the mechanical downgrades?
    (not looking at changing the trans/clutch/starter on the 88 to make it like a later model, too much $$ involved)

    What you guys think?

    Here is a 1993 FXRS SP I picked up. Reinstalled the factory bars, rebuilt front forks, all fluids, rebuilt carb, new tires. It sat for 15 years. Cleaned up nice.

    I've a 85 evo fxr , with the standard starter and clutch, had it 10 years. No issue with starter, fried the clutch plates at the strip once. Mainshaft good after 36 years!

    Why are the lower miles important to you? How MANY miles is the difference? "Lower" is vague". What are the bikes condition? Evo engines are quite durable. I would never voluntarily go back to the older system since I keep bikes for life and the advantages of running the more powerful, more plentiful (by tens of millions at least) starter that's far easier to get parts for (Denso contact kits etc are everywhere dirt cheap), ability to run pushbutton solenoid end covers, and getting rid of the old solenoid for arrangement. When keeping a bike for like (mine is my main ride) modest advantages add up over time. The later setup is much nicer if you go for more HP. Higher compression was eventually too much for my stock starter.

    The old setup is acceptable and I ran mine for thirtyish years but the later has considerable advantages. Why does the 1988 owner want to trade? What carbs are on the bikes (the later CV is a much better part than the Keihin if they're still stock and the stock 1988 rubber boot intake prone to brittle and leaky boots now these bikes are older than dirt. The 1988 owner wants yours for a reason (or more than one). Either engine can easily go 100,000 miles before needing a top end job and much longer before a bottom end.

    You already own the better parts. Neither transmission is likely to wear out (and both are cheap to replace or upgrade the gears only, so many replace just the tapered shaft guts with splined but retain the case and primary because the only reason to replace those is the starter upgrade not the spline shaft upgrade. While taper shaft development ended with the change to splines, the 5 speed carried on through the five speed TCs making many perfectly good takeout gearsets (the cases don't match of course but you can perform the spline shaft swap without changing the starter. You can also update the starter by modding the small hole taper shaft case and swapping to bagger primary covers to keep it cheap.

    Useful info here:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/883380758355050/

    Is your current FXR a fadeed, pitted shitbox and you want to swap to the 1988 because it's in dramatically better cosmetic shape?

    That's perfectly valid if you're going to keep it stock forever since paint jobs aren't cheap. What precisely do you want from the '88? Lots of FXR owners just collect them which is fine, but the less stock my '88 got the nicer it was to live with in detail. It went from good to much better. I wouldn't swap my other, 1994 non-stock FXLR for a mint 1988 either though a mint '88 would resale for more.

    He looks classic but definitely a well-maintained bike.
