Yes my buddy and I just replaced the stock plates a couple of weeks ago. both on 05 790s
Mine was toast and his was going.
My friction plates were gone, the plain plates were not dicolored or warped and could have been reused if I wanted to be cheap about it.
I also replaced the springswhile I was in there.
The job is straightforward enough.
Do remember to REMOVE the crankcase breather tube first
DO NOT forget to replace the wave washer on the starter gear.

Beware the overtightened clutch nut

2001 Bonneville, 92,000km

Purchased the barnett kit with gold springs.
Purchased the holding & the alignment tool.
New oil & filter & clutch cover gasket.

After many failed attempts even with assistance.

I sprayed the nut with WD40 (aerosol lubricant/water dispersant etc).

Still no joy, eventually got a torque wrench onto it to see just how tight it was on, seemed to be on tighter than the specified 105NM.

Eventually got it, only to find one of the four spring pillars on the clutch basket snapped!!!!!!!!!! So now need a new clutch basket backing plate with the four threaded pillars....

Someone had overtightened it with a rattle gun!!! No sign of threadlocker on it.........Anyone know of a bike breaker/wrecker who has bonnie/t100/speedmaster/thruxton/america/scrambler bits???
regards jeff
