Hello,

I have a 2007 450ER and the reduction gear B went out on the starter assembly. Expecting to have to take out the starter clutch, i took the clutch plates out. I replaced the reduction gear and was able to once again turn over the motor. I marked them(te tops of the fiber plates, but it seems like the presure plate isn't going down onto the discs when fully torqed down. Is it possible for the rod to not be seated correctly and subsequently the needle bearing holder to be pushing the pressure plate out too much? i haven't wanted to break open the left side to find out just yet. I wanted to ask here if any of you have experienced this before. Also, i looked at the clutch install guide sticky, but it seems like to presure plate is so much further from the fiber plate on mine than the guide shows it to be.

tnx

you wont see anything on the left side anyway, one thing i can think of is that the lever arm that the cable hooks too might of fell down a little which would push the rod out farter, take the pressure plate off and pull the lever arm up a little, there should be like 1/8" gap between the top of the arm and the seal, also check to make sure that the washer on the outside of the needle bearing is on, ive had one **** in between the plate and the bearing and didnt notice it until i went to put the cover on.

Are you sure the presure plate has lined up correctly with the inner clutch hub.
It locates into the inner cluch hub. Take it off and have a look. It sounds like your problem to me.

I figured it out. The clutch lever was fully depressed. I cloesed it and all of the plates and snapped together.

Thanks!
