    GSAddict - You already have 100,000 KM on you lengthened spline?

    FWIW - Otherwise my reaction before reading of your experiences would have been to replace the part.

    Thanks for all your advice. Very much appreciated. I'm going to replace the clutch plate and get some emery disks for my orbital!

    Don't you mean "slipping" the clutch? I understand this to mean revving the engine but not fully engaging the clutch for slow speed control. Get's the clutch parts extremely hot!

    They seem to teach slipping the clutch for slow speed manouevers in a lot of bike training courses nowadays. Used to be verbotten for dry clutches. Every year at the rally bike games we smell em burning all over the field during the slow speed race as riders slip their clutches and wrangle handlebars back and forth trying to go as slow as possible and not fall off!

    Yes it does but the truth be known, a lot of that mileage was in the pacific northwest of the US.

    There goes another one

    This one is high mileage. But maybe it is repeat failure.

    My 02 RT is past 40k miles sine the splines went out.
    Should I just assume that every 40k miles it should be pulled apart and inspected or re-lubed?
    It shifts as good as the day I picked it up.
    I ask because I am not confident in doing this myself and would have to pay someone else to do it.
    There is other stuff I would like to get done.

    And out of curiosity... do the 1200s have the same issues with the splines and the rear ends?

    Modified Clutch

    Just wanted to show a couple photo's of the modified clutch with the spacer kits acquired from cele0001. I had a local machine shop remove rivets from clutch plate and install spacer with new rivets cele0001 included in his kit. Total charge at shop was $43.

    He's a regular contributor here and over on advrider forum and I think he's maintaining a list for new orders there.
