    If anyone has any tips or tricks to add, by all means feel free. That's the great thing about forums, getting new ideas thrown in. I'm going to do one on clutch replacement and I know for a fact there are a few varying opinions on it.

    Okay, I forgot something. After you install nut on mainshaft, use a punch and stake the nut. Place the punch on the outer lip of the nut directly over the groove in the shaft. Give it a sharp hit with a hammer to bend the lip of the nut down into the groove. A lil extra insurance to make sure it doesn't back out.

Be VERY careful as the edges of the basket and inner hub are sharp and can cut the hell out of you if not careful (don't ask me how I know). Now zap that sucker off.
    A hint:instead of using the rag to hold it in place,just leave the clutch plates in,and press em a bit by hand,That way you got enough friction to loosen the bolt,without using anything that might spin on your fingers.Its a lot easier,cause when you loosen it like this,you get the clutch center out,flip it and you also got all the disks in the right order to install em
    There`s only three speeds:fast,very fast,and OH SHIT! Hidden Content

    thats a good tip. Either way will work but the main thing to remember is being careful to not get cut.
