clutch rod

Im wondering,haven't really found a for sure answer,can the clutch rod be pulled out and put back in without ruining anything at all or having to get it in a specific spot.will it slide right back into where it properly belongs.

I have a new/used one and im thinking just maybe mine is warped a bit,so wanna take it out and see.any advice would be great.

Yeah you can just pull it out. Look at it when you do as it does have two different ends on it, so you can make sure to put it back in the correct way.

No worries. I think the long machined end goes in first but it has been a while since I've had mine out.

It should show it in the service manual in one of the pics.

Are you looking at the ends themselves?

What I ment was the shaft itself should be turned down a few inches on one end.

I have a spare out in my stuff I'll try to get out there and look at it to see if maybe I'm just getting old......lol

Well it even kind of shows it on the parts drawing though it does go the opposite way then I remembered.....lol

Honda, ATV Parts, Scooter Parts, Motorcycle Parts,CRF,CR,MX Parts, Goldwing parts

See how it has the line towards the clutch slave cylinder?

Ok I just looked at my new one. One end has a black tip, that goes in first. The other end should have a long gold colored section or at least smooth looking. That end goes out as that is what rides in the seal.

So yes there are two different ends.

i see on mine where the wear marks at.one side is shiny which shows that was the cylinder side.
thats the only indication i have of which end goes in.it should work out,im about to get to that next.
i expected to be done with everything arond 9,but you know how that goes,problem after problem.but its coming along.

oil,as in clutch fluid or motor oil.

no motor oil will come out at all and the clutch fluid wont either if you leave one screw in the cylinder,it all will come out as one unit,than you could pull the rod or whatever else you need to do.

No oil will come out unless you start the engine....
I guess they changed things on the newer models..... well other than that I guess you really can put it in whichever way you like....
