    Default 83 clutch stack

    Well I got 3 weeks in about 1800 miles out of the old girl before the clutch decided it was done. I've searched and searched and I can't come up with the parts list I need to replace the stack and Gasket and anything else I might need before I start that job? Do any of you have that information handy?

    Do I need the bent nose ring pliers if I'm not doing a master cylinder to do this job?

    Also I have yet to find a way to bookmark or save post that I want to keep for later referral. Is there somewhere on this site to build my own Library?

    I put the new heavy duty springs in this spring. Now I know it's the stack because cruising on the highway at 60, roll the throttle to full and the tach jumps to about 7.5 and then the speedometer catches up.

    What are the bits you are after ? Clutch plates ? You should be able to get them anywhere - a quick search for Venture Royale Clutch Plates showed these up, even in the UK: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/26262...192&rmvSB=true The other choice would be to put a washer under each spring of course, but that depends on how heavy the clutch is already.

    If I can get the gasket in the UK from Ebay, they should have hundreds available in the USA: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Athena-Clutch-Cover-Gasket-fits-Yamaha-XVZ-1200-TD-Venture-Royale-1984-1985/141778896960?epid=1860344540&hash=item2102ae4840:m :mTQju_DPLZkFYK4VIJBs2mw

    Am I missing something ?

    Yes, lots of options. I installed a Barnett clutch kit in my '84 and am very pleased with it. These can be found on eBay - not cheap mind you (see link following). The gasket you can get from any of the online Yamaha parts sellers - I use PartShark.

    First off, I have seen posts over the years that Skydoc17 sells the perfect set-up. I agree with luvmy40.


    I like this link to get part numbers, then scour the interweb for deals

    You have certainly been through struggles with that bike! If you are going to have to open up the clutch anyway, perhaps you should open it up and see what it looks like before order new clutch parts. Might be that something else in the actuating department is preventing the clutch from fully engaging and new clutch parts are not necessary. Just a thought.

    I'm not entirely sure that the MK1 clutches and the MK2 clutches are the same. I think they changed them to the single diaphram spring set up in 86 and used that through the production of Royal Stars as well. I agree with everyone else, I'm running the skydoc kit on my 88 and theres absolutely no slip! Just be sure it will work with yours.

    If it wont, I do believe the barnett conversion will!

    Good luck!

    I've also developed a puddle below my left front Fork. Last time it was the anti dive this time looks like it's the top seal. I haven't tried to clean anything yet to see what the jack is going on there but will be addressing it while it's up on the jack.

    The pull is fine. It slips like a beast. I can hold highway speeds just fine. I have developed a new habit of driving around 60 miles an hour at around 36 3700 RPM instead of 32 hundred. But in 5th gear 65 miles an hour and then go full throttle. Tach jumps up, speedometer slowly starts to catch up to where the tach is.

    And I need to get my shifter linkage length dialed-in. Right now I believe the adjustment screw is as short as it can go and so there's a lot of slop and it's hard to get into first year by shifting down with my heel. Remember that I have a reverse shift pattern.

    So that means I'll be pulling that left side cover off where the slave is again so I can get to that adjustment. I had a drip from there over the kickstand for about a week and then once I got to ride and got going I wiped it clean and I haven't had a drip so that's weird but I'll see what it was while I have the cover off

    I did get almost 2,000 miles in 3 weeks while she was running. Now I know why she's worth all the work. ( she'll never be worth all the money though)

    I clean mine it seems yearly. I use an old 35mm film negative, slides in easily, and cleans out the funkies, usually bug splat. I have never replaced either side, and both sides have leaked.

    Me too. I've found that most of the time leaks are crap between the seal and the tube, there isn't really a surface or enough action on those seals to wear them much, they lead a pretty easy life. If they're old and stiff that's one thing, but if they're still pliable then cleaning almost always does the trick for me. Gaiters are nice, they keep stuff off the tubes and eliminate cleaning, if you like the look.
