I have been trying to install new clutch springs in my 07 t100, but I have run into some issues. It seems that I can can the spring bolts in to the point that two are snug, allowing for the center rod to move easily, but when I proceed to torque the bolts to 7 ft/lbs, the rod gets stuck, and I must start over. What am I missing here? Also, from watching a diy video, it would seem that my bike does not have the washers that sit under the springs.

When you get to the point where you are snugging up the bolts and the plunger stops moving easily apply a little levering on the plate itself first one side then the other sometimes that will loosen the plunger where you can nip up the bolts some more. 7 ft/lb is not enough for me to use a torque wrench just nip them up and lever the plunger loose then renip.

Thanks. I've been scratching my head on this one.

It's a job that's better done by feel than by torque value, although you have to aim toward the correct torque. The one time that I did it, I got lucky and it went back together without much aggravation.

I have the correct Triumph factory tools / jig - -Nanner, Nanner, Nanner....

Sold to me by a very nice fellow member for close to nothing.:cool: Now that I went and said that my clutch will probably be toast when I fire the bike up next. o_O
