    Just stripped off the casing and started to look at the clutch. I have a replacement set of genuine Kawasaki cork plates, but part number 39130 Spring fingered washer was badly broken 2 hooks & 2 fingers broken off. I have this part, (Luckily0, but now need to remove the big clutch nut, 92015, & do not have a "Clutch locking tool" 57001-305, keeps the limited -slip Clutch sub - assembly from turning!

    Just interested in how anyone has say improvised to lock the sub-assembly up without the special tool & of course managed it plus taking care not to damage any parts?

    Cheers

    I replaced my spring finger washer last year and to keep the clutch from turning I placed it in first gear and used a large wrench wrapped in a towel and stuck it between the rear wheel and the swing arm. Just go easy to loosen and tighten the lock nut.

    The fix is to double up on the finger washer and use a special upgraded nut to go back.

    Sometimes I feel a little detent in the lever when it's almost fully released on my '86 600. It also uses a fingered spring like the bigger Eliminators and the later '96 600 diagram shows two being used. I should probably order the parts before mine breaks if it hasn't already. Is this problem not as common on the 600 or has this same upgrade for it already been discussed somewhere else?
