Hi, Jeffrey for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can not find the best tool you ever bought for your Honda, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Snug, not loose. Between 6 to 9 ft lbs. torque on the bolts. Higher torque will strip aluminum threads.

I have a 1982 Maxim 650 that is stuck in 2nd gear. Does anybody have any ideas?


There is a small spring that returns the shift mechanism to a neutral position that has probably broken or become unhooked. The same problem can happen if upon reassembly the shift activator gears slide past each other and no longer twist the mechanism. Either way you should be able to look at the mechanism and spring by taking off the shift lever and removing the engine cover behind the lever. The cover. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1982-yamaha-xj650j/o/m8214#sch227044 The mechanism and small spring (part#2) http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1982-yamaha-xj650j/o/m8214#sch227724

Clutch slips more than it should. 1982 honda goldwing feels like motor is misfireing


If the motor seems like it is idling roughly/misfiring try putting on a set of new spark plug caps on. You can purchase NGK brand for about $5 each ($20). I drove my first used GL1000 home from the dealership and was regretting the purchase it was running so terribly. I had the spark plug caps in my pocket on the way home. I changed the caps in the driveway and could not believe the difference. It was a completely different motorcycle. The resisters in the caps often burn out. If you check the caps with a voltage meter they should read 5000 OHMS. Anything higher or lower replace the cap.
It is possible to replace the clutch plates with the motor in the frame. The clearance is very tight. First, check that the clutch cable is not binding. This can cause the clutch to slip each shift and it is a lot easier to replace. Next smell the oil to see if there are burnt clutch plates. It may be easier to try replacing just the clutch springs. If they are below 1.35 inches (34.2 mm) they are below tolerance and need to be replaced. New tolerance is 1.4 inches (35.5 mm).Use only OEM Honda springs. If you inspect the clutch plates and they are warped, scored, or burnt replace the whole set with OEM Honda parts. Replace the cable first, then the springs, then the plates.

Getting clutch shudder towards the end of clutch engagement on a honda ntv 650, 1998. any ideas at all? there is an anti clutch shudder spring in the clutch, could this be faulty?


it may be time for you to replace the clutch. if you are not aware of the procedure then you should take it to a shop and have them look at it first and then shop around for the work to be done. there is no anti shutter spring or clamp or anything else. this will happen when the clutch 1 starts to go out of adjustment or 2 needs to be replaced.
