KLR Clutch Installation

I just got in all of the gaskets today so I will probably be putting in the new clutch (well, not new, but a low milage used unit complete except for the inner hub). I've done clutches before but is there anything particularly tricky about the KLR that any of you have run into when removing the engine cover? Also, the generator case gasket is seeping a very small amount of oil, not enough to form drops but enough to have dirt stick to it so I will be replacing them as well as putting on new pads front and rear. I'll let you guys know how badly it goes.

Better get the water pump seals and stuff.

Did you see that Rekluse has a clutch out for the KLR now?

Might as well crack the rest of the engine open and slip in that 685 kit from Schnitz while you're there.

I am currently putting away every penny I can for the possibility of KTM I know of becoming availble. I want to be able to snatch it up as soon as it does so the big bore kit or a trick clutch are being relegated to the list of maybes by dreams of the trouble I can get into on a 450 SM. Bigdaa, don't have the water pump seals, guess I should have done a little more research before ordering all of what I thought would be needed to complete the job. Thanks for pointing it out for me.

I can only teach from experience. Imagine my chagrin when I thought I was all ready to go then had to wait another 4 days. You also can use a bit of waterproof grease (Maxim) for the water o-ring and the oil seal.

I think the KTM idea just kicks ass, BTW
