Anyone know the transmission and clutch intimately?
When I had the motor out of my bike to remove the base gasket, I also split the cases. While I was in there, I removed the counter balancer and the the balls for the neutral finder. I like removing the neutral finder on Kawasaki's, because it allows you to go to neutral from second gear.
Since I have had my bike back together, I have not been able to shift into neutral with the engine running. Everything else is fine. It shifts great all the time, except for neutral. I figured it was clutch stack height, as the transmission has been clunky and hard to get into neutral when cold since I installed a new clutch.
I pulled the clutch tonight, and it is right in the middle of the spec range according to the manual. I made sure the inner spring was installed properly as well. I also checked the steels, and made sure they are flat.
I can get it into neutral with the motor off, but that's it. Any ideas? Do I need to pull the motor and split the cases again?
Thanks in advance,
