Removing motor to replace starter clutch

Postby Dkranz » Mon Aug 06, 2012 10:51 am



Good morning all,
Time for me to stop lurking and post!
I have a 93 GL 1500 with a bad starter clutch. I have about everything unbolted to remove the motor, however, have no idea how to disconnect the shaft. I have done motors on 1100's and 1200's and they seemed easy enough, the 1500 is scaring me.... Any suggestions, or know a good resource on instructions on removing motor?
Anyone here in Las Vegas that might be able to lend a hand?
I just got the bike not to long ago, and have not been able to ride it yet..
Thanks
Doug

Check the How-To-Articles under gl1500 and there are procedures for removing the rear wheel and lubricating the rear shaft splines. Which will cover removing the shaft.

As I remember there is a heavy spring on the drive line. If you take a bar to the u joint between the back of the engine and the joint you can and its not easy pry the drive line back and away. I think I had my engine tilted slightly when I removed it but forgot and had the engine in place when I needed to install it. What a job. O remember to remove the small timing belt cover on the right side. Good luck larrs2

NO!
We got the engine out of my '95 and back in without removing the rear wheel. We had more trouble lining up the splines when we put it back together. It does take some effort to compress the spring holding the two pieces together, though.
