Well put the clutch cover back on and the clutch now has no tension. Must be something I'm doing wrong but not sure what

Looks like the teeth on the end of the push rod axle weren't engage properly with the teeth on the pull rod, which is why the clutch would it wouldn't move the clutch and why the teeth got mashed. You probably had the teeth on the pull rod (sticking out the clutch assembly) facing the wrong way when you assembled it?

If that's all that's broken, then it's not too labour intensive to replace. They'll just have to pop the circlip of the bottom of the axle, slide it out and pop a new one in. The worst part is the fact that the axle is about fifty quid.

Anyway, hopefully you'll be back on the road soon.

Just out of interest... was the crank nut loose in the end?

Yes. The clutch cover is interchangeable. It should be OK.

Hey Robmoz, I have a whirring rattle from the right hand side only on initial startup. Then it disappears. If it was the crank nut I feel the sound would be heard more often. Interested to hear your results so keep us posted please.

Can the starter clutch whirr/rattle for several minutes after starting? It doesnt increase when revs are raised.
