Thread: I Need an Oilhead Clutch Centering Tool

    I Need an Oilhead Clutch Centering Tool

    I need to replace the clutch in my R1100S. I've seen several very creative home remedies for centering the clutch, but I'd like to use the OEM tool since this is my first stab at it. I'd be happy to rent a clutch centering tool and pay shipping both ways if someone has one they wouldn't mind parting with for a week or two.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jim Moore

    Having recently done the clutch on my R11RS, I tried to use my old airhead centering tool, but it was too large a diameter. I was going to have it turned down to the right size, but instead bodged together a few sockets and an extension which worked fine.

    It's really not hard to come up with something that will work. The tolerances aren't so critical that only the right tool will work. IMO, an alternative may be a lot easier.

    I just took my first stab at this as well. Masking tape wrapped around the clutch pushrod worked perfectly. As has been said here before, the tolerances are not that small.
