    Thumbs up Help wanted to change sprag clutch - West Kent

    Hi, I bought a RSVmille and it now appears the seller decided to withold the issue of a failing sprag clutch, oh well.

    What I would like to do is have someone assist me (more like show me) in the changing of the sprag clutch. I am willing to pay someone, but we would need to discuss this. I am not a mechanic, but have some knowlege. I also do not posses all the required tools. I do however have a garage, kettle, and BBQ. If required, I could come to you.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm waiting on a price from a chap on the forum He said 90 including a new gasket too. I don't need the gasket now so will either get one from him or use the KTM one that needs to go on backwards.

    RSV Sprag Clutch.

    Hi, I have just replaced mine. I had to buy the special tools.( Puller, and Bolt,). If give me a call (07772481172) I can run through it with you. I had to replace three components, Sprag Bearing, Bearing Carrier, and the large gear. Dont skimp on just doing the bearing, it is bound to fail? You need a Heat gun ( one to strip paint houshold paint). Regards ST2
