I am thinking of a project for this winter among several, but the one I wanted to ask about is the Clutch Spline lube on my '78 R100/7.
I am thinking also at the same time, while I am in there, to remove the clutch (and inspect) and replace the rear main seal. I have no leaking, but I thought I would check.
Has anyone heard about the concept of supporting the front end of the crankshaft by placing a board (2 x 4) on the front of the crankshaft and pulling it back slightly (like with bungee cords) towards the back of the bike? I have heard of it, and someone recommended it, but I am not sure if reliable source, nor do I know exactly how or why it is to be done. I can surmise though.
Also, any advice anyone might have I would appreciate.
Thanks ahead of time.
