The clutch has a tough job to do. It’s responsible for coupling and decoupling the engine from the rear wheel so that you can start, stop, and shift smoothly. The clutch plates are consumable parts that wear with use, so sooner or later they’ll need to be replaced. Fortunately, the process is not quite as intimidating as it looks.
The first step is to either drain the engine oil or to carefully lay the bike on its side so the oil pools on the opposite side of the motor. If your bike has radiator hoses attached to the clutch-cover, you’ll need to drain your cooling system as well.
