repairing clutch

Post by burntice51 » Mon Apr 08, 2013 6:00 pm

does the engine need to be pulled out of a 1995 Goldwing in order to inspect and fix a cluth ? I am looking in the manual and it doesn't say anything about pulling the engine.

In my Haynes manual, it says that the clutch assembly can be removed without having to remove the engine. (See Page 2-6, sub heading 2.

It also says that there is no manual adjustment available, and that the fluid level should be checked, and the lever position checked.

Have a happy day.

The Goldwing clutches are nearly bulletproof. I've a friend that's been working as a mechanic in our local Honda dealership for quite some time. When I was having clutch issues with my bike, he insisted I look further into the hydraulics because in the 2 decades he'd been wrenching on bikes, he only replace ONE worn out Goldwing clutch, and that was attributed to the owner having towed his wife's car with the bike.
What are the symptoms you are trying to fix?
Keep the rubber side down.
