damper plate repair

Post by AAwinghead »



ok, so had a hard time trying to figure out what to do about damper plate,on GL1100i. rivets came out, and clutch started to not disengage, and it was really hard to shift. After realizing it was not the cable. i pulled the clutch with home made tools (with engine in frame). i did remove the rear tire to make it eazier to see. With virus going around had to resort to fixing damper plate instead of finding one used, since cant get new. I used steel pop rivets (with pop rivet tool), and 1/16in.-1/8 in grip range steel rivets it was tough getting them in (sanded them a bit to fit) and popped. then sanded butt ends down. it worked great>for me> hopefully this can help some one else.
