clutch nut

hi all
i have just replaced my friction plates and am having trouble torqueing the clutch nut..
i had some one on the bike holding back brake while in 1st gear with a lump
of wood through the back wheel..
The nut has gone on but i cant get it to 150nm the basket moves when i try to
give it some,any suggestions..
Also when i drained the oil there were a couple of little slithers of metal
on the sump nut ,anything to worry about
thanks lee

Re: clutch nut

Where bout London? Download the service manual if you haven't already. That will show the way. Other than that good luck!

Re: clutch nut

They (motion pro & suzuki themselves) make a tool to stead fast the basket while torquing the nut.
You can even use an old steel plate with a vice grip attached as a make-shift holding tool.
You can also back the nut off about 3/4ths of the way then zoom it on with an impactor while holding it with a rag or towel.
The nut gets peened on as well so between the 2 that should be sufficient.

Re: clutch nut

Forget to center punch that nut and you'll soon be hearing the "sounds of silence" as your clutch grenades and the engine locks up!

Re: clutch nut

FWIW, 1st gear is the wrong end to use. If you want to hold the clutch put the bike in 6th gear. It will work better.
