I was just curious if it would be possible to modify (cut / grind) the housing to allow easy access to the front sprocket. Most bikes have easy access and it makes it so much easier to inspect, clean, and change out the front sprocket. Just curious if anyone has considered this or tried it?



Here's a pic showing where I was thinking the case could be cut / modified:

There is a bearing supported in the area you dotted. The bearing is lubricated with engine oil pumped through the drive shaft and out to the bearing, and the oil returns to the stator area via a port in the area you dotted. Cut out that area, lose oil, engine gets mad.

I guess that answers it!




I'll be openning this up soon to inspect the clutch and thought'd I'd consider the mod. I guess I won't need to think about that option any longer. Thanks for the clarification... I appreciate it.

The clutch is on the other side of the case. No need removing the left case cover to do anything with the clutch.

Wow, this shows how little I know about these bikes!


Thanks for the info... I'll be reading up on the shop manual and hopefully gain enough confidence to open things up and check it out.



Anyone have pics of their clutch-job? It'd be great to see someone else's experience with this...

You can find a tutorial with many pictures on the TW clutch here on the French forum (you might need to be logged in, not sure).



I'll be replacing clutch discs and springs on one of my TW very soon, it should be quite easy with the right tools.
