    Just wondering if the inner hub looks like this, what does the outer hub look like?

    Thanks for the opinions. Interesting that roughly half say replace and half say clean up and reuse. I am traveling right now and looking at the replies in a phone. I'll go through the replies more carefully and take a better look at the everything when I get back home in a few days.

    Thanks

    I have looked at the photos and read all the replies. The outer basket has normal wear with nothing out of the ordinary present. I cleaned up the damage in my photo with a small file and emery cloth. It cleaned up very nicely. The area that was pointed out that looked like a crack in the photo was not a crack. It rubbed right off with my finger.

    I just got done reassembling the clutch using new OEM fiber plates, steel plates and OEM springs. I hope to finish up assembly and fire up the bike to see what the clutch does. It it stops pouring out.

    I'll let you know how it works.

    I would have used it too if what looked like a crack cleaned up, incl the steels. I'm sure it will be fine. Did you upgrade the clutch nut whilst at it? (The stock ones have a habit of coming loose due to thread stretch, an APE one (or an 1150 one is also an upgrade) would be better.

    Did you check for spring rattle in the back plate too?

    Yes I checked it. There was little to no spring rattle. I used the stock nut, which by the way was loose. Used blue locktite and an impact installing the nut. Guess I need to buy the APE nut and put it on the shelf for next time I am in there.

    Also noticed the idle was smoother with clutch nut tight.

    Just got back from a ride for lunch, clutch works great so far.

    Good news!

    The APE nut is a harder material, the threads stretch on the stock one. Hopefully the Loctite will keep it from loosening up again, see how it goes I guess!
