Replacing Clutch Plates on 74' CB 750

Has anyone replaced the clutch plates in a K series 750. I am thinking of replacing the ones in my 74' as i tend to get a little clutch slip if i roll on it too hard. I was wondering how difficult it is and if it will require me to remove the motor from the frame. thanks.

Ah.. a motor I can relate to! Before you get to deep into replacement discs/plates, be sure the clutch is properly adjusted. Do you know how to preform this adjustment? It is more than a simple cable free play adjustment.

Never had a Clymer manual! It is spelled out in the CB750 Honda shop manual. Clymer's might have a step-by-step.

Try this:

Loosen the lower cable adjuster, set the handlbar cable adjuster at it's mid-point. Don't worry about free play at this point, it's the last step.

On the right side cover you will see a small cover with a arge slot. Using the shock spanner from your toolkit (or a half dollar), remove the cover.
You will see a small nut and screw arrangement in the center of the hole. While holding the screw from turning, loosen the nut 2 turns. Now, while holding the nut, turn the screw in until it stops. Back out one full turn. While holding the screw, tighten the nut. Make sure the o-ring on the cover is clean, and put it on. Take the slack out of the clutch cable at the lower adjuster. Adjust free play [0.25"-0.50"] at the handlebar.

The way it works: The screw adjusts the clutch spring pressure, in is more, out is less. The nut is a locking device.
