But after just having typed that, I realized that the whole basket doesn't need to be removed, only the springs and plates.
Haha. That's why I was confused.  We're on the same page.

That's a pretty common problem when adjusting the clutch on these bikes, it's a very fine line between properly adjusted and not working. I found this post to be very helpful when I did mine:

You will likely need to open the right side cover to get the clutch plates unstuck. You can also put it in 6th gear and try rocking it, but it won't always work. And like the above posts, you should be cleaning that oil slinger out anyways before running it.

It's more like an 1/8 turn, at the most.  Not a 1/4 turn. I literally turn mine maybe 5 degrees of rotation. Not much at all.

Holy shit, man.  Yeah.  Um.

Do the clutch mods.  You won't regret it.  It's open now.  Barnett makes an HD clutch springs set for these, too.

whats the advantage to drilling holes in the clutch basket and is it only applicable to these bikes? would it have the same effect on a 750 SOHC? mines apart but hopefully going back together very soon so i may as well do it before reassemble if theres any need
