Spline repair finished, now new question
Well after several crazy work months I was able to finally get back to the clutch and shaft spline repairs. Was able to rebuild shaft assembly with new shaft and parts and after much measuring and head scratching decided to try and just replace the clutch plate. Took the bike out and feels damn good to not have the knocking sound coming from tranny anymore. Some slight clutch adjustments and I think I'm good to go. Ready to head back to the Blue Ridge Parkway again this spring. Feeling pretty happy with myself for tackling this project myself. Thanks again to all of you for the tidbits of info.
Since staring at the bike for a while now on the lift; I think now I want to find a tinted wind screen for the ol' S. Does any one have any leads? Thanks
