How to remove starter clutch CB750
« on: February 10, 2019, 01:30:06 pm »
I've searched the forum and can't really find the the info I'm looking for.

Is there a trick to removing the start clutch from the back of the alternator rotor?

I've tried an impact driver with no luck. Are the 3 screws just really stuck or are the left hand threaded? Are the held in place some other way?

I'm letting them soak in some pb blaster right now

They were originally "cinched" into a small groove they will eventually shift with a correct size impact bit and a big hammer NOTE they are not phillips but jis

Thanks. Got one out then my JIS bit actually broke on the second! my next try is to heat it first.

Question: I have an RC engineering lightened rotor, but it does looks like the screw holes for the start clutch mechanism are there anymore.

When the rotors are lightened does that get rid of the ability to use the starter clutch?

looks like this:

Don't piss around with them, you just break your tools. Drill them out, 3 minutes later it's off.
The  lightened alternator come in 2 versions,  a bit lighter for electric start. A lot more lighter, no electric start..
 Yours is used on kick only motors.

 I suppose you  could maybe mount it, but the lip is missing.
 Just grab another rotor if you just have an e start..

I would reinstall a kicker shaft in your motor.
