This is really annoying

I am in the process of changing the clutch plates on my 1992 VT1100..and I am stuck at the locknut part number 90231mm8000 because it requires a special tool to remove it which is part number 07916-4220000 which I can buy for just under 50...but that is not the annoying bit..The locknut has been superseded by part number 90231ms2610 which requires a different tool to put it back on..

John.

Try a search on the fourum, and other forum sites for a homemade tool that is made by grinding a cheap socket to fit.

are you talking about this locknut thing?

(also this was my solution.. couldn't get an accurate torque reading, but I got mine back on pretty tight...)

thanks T P. yes thats the one but I have just had a closer look and I think it may have a spring clip holding it closed which is stopping me from undoing it.....

either my bad eyesight or I have to cut down on the stupid pills..
