 Post subject: GY6 Clutch Spring Install
PostPosted: Sun Sep 05, 2010 6:31 pm 
I don't think there is a How To for this on the GY6, so here it goes.
This is for installation of the torque spring and 3 clutch springs using an impact wrench (manly tool) and a rubber strap wrench.
Step 1: Remove the variator cover
Image
Step 2: Using an impact wrench, remove the nut holding the variator, and the nut holding the clutch.
Remove the variator, clutch, and belt.
Image
Step 3: Slide the clutch bell off, and clamp the nut on the clutch in a solid vice.
Image
Step 4: Using a rubber strap wrench around the clutch, turn it counter-clockwise.
Be careful when you near the end of the threads, the tension of the spring will send the clutch flying off.
Image
Image
Step 5: Remove the 3 C-clips from the clutch, remove the plate
Image
Step 6: Using an awl, or needle nose pliers, remove the 3 springs, and replace with new springs. Pay attention to their direction.
Image
Image
Step 7: Replace plate, C-clips, and re-assemble using new torque spring.
Compress the assembly using one hand, one foot, and use your other hand to start threading the nut.
Clamp the nut in the vice, and tighten the clutch with the strap wrench, same way you removed it.

8mm for outer case, 17mm for variator and clutch, and 1 1/2" or 38mm for big clutch nut. Just did mine. Only took 30min.

Instead of stepping on it to compress it. I went to Lowes and got a 2 finger Bessy clamp

It controls the compression using the screw handle letting you slowly release the pressure instead of having it hit you in the face.

About $16 bucks worth. A little harsher engagement at a little higher rpm. At least that is how I felt it was on my bike. I think if you are a light weight rider on a bike with big power and torque you might notice a bigger difference, but on a stock bike..not too much.
