sorry, i missed this thread for a few days.

on the right side of the motor, the engine cover that has the oil sight window on it is the clutch cover. undo all the allen bolts, and the cover will come off and you will see the clutch. you'd need to actually undo the four or five bolts in the middle of the clutch and remove the clutch fibers and plates so that you can thoroughly inspect the outer clutch basket and inner hub.

you'd be looking for damage, like a broken hub 'finger', which would throw the balance off. the outer clutch hub is geared directly to the crankshaft....so if it were out of balance, you'd feel it as a vibration.

what's your email address? i can send you a picture of what the clutch looks like and how to go about disassembling it, but the picture will be for a 2000 750.....not exactly the same as your bike, but the pictures will be close enough.

i'd advise purchasing a shop manual for your bike, it will walk you through everything step by step.

you can order one at your suzuki dealer or from http://www.repairmanual.net

you've got mail.

if the clutch basket were damaged to the point where it wouldn't allow the clutch to disengage completely and consistently, it's possible that that might result in an incomplete shift.....especially the 1-2 shift because it's the longest one....

you don't need the tool, that's just to help hold the clutch basket stationary when you're undoing the clutch hub nut (the big one in the center after you remove all the discs and plates) to remove the clutch basket.

but you won't really need to remove the clutch basket itself, just removing the plates and discs will expose the clutch basket so that you can take a look at it.

you'd be looking for broken pieces on the clutch basket and inner hub.....basically any damage that would cause the clutch to be off balance and cause a vibration when the engine is running.

yeah, it'll be okay with the oil in the bike....but if you do discover damage to the clutch basket - for example, pieces broken off - then you'll probably want to at least drain the oil and see if you can get the metal bits out......if not drop the oil pan entirely to make absolutely sure that you've gotten all the pieces.


p.s. i don't do mr. coffee's.
