Either our bikes are different or your dealer is a majician. There was no WAY I could fit the pressure plate thru the derby opening. If they did, WOW!!Boatman said:My dealer did it on my FB in 50-60 minutes. They did not unhook the cable and they did not remove the outer primary cover to install the disc (only the derby cover). I know this doesn't help much but it is not a hard job but I'm just going by what I saw when they did the work. Good luck and it really works. They did not drain the tranny and just topped off.
I don't think he was trying to bust your balls on this. Lots of people come in here looking for help and never think of getting a manual to assist with the basics of the repair they are attempting.Pavetack said:
The spring diaphragm wouldn't fit through the derby cover on my FLHTCUI. It was necessary to remove, and later replace, the entire exhaust system, the transmission cover and the primary cover and both floorboards to install it on my bike. Took most of a day for me.Geezer-Glide said:Either our bikes are different or your dealer is a majician. There was no WAY I could fit the pressure plate thru the derby opening. If they did, WOW!!
Do a search and you will find several threads on this subject. Harris posted great instructions in the following thread::yes: :yes:Pavetack said:Thanks everyone. I have the manual...sometimes the experience of others is better than the manual.
Can you say "Scratched up primary cover?" :dunno: I knew you could. Anything will fit if enough force is applied. I got lucky, I have Kuryakin floor board extenders on my EGC and didn't have to drop the left floor board! V&H Propipes gave me access to the tranny door too. Finished up mine in 1 1/2 hrs. (that translates into 3 beers!) :wootdnc:AFRetired said:I watched my tech remove and replace the diaphragm spring throught the derby cover. It wasn't easy and it wasn't pretty. Basicly, he had to compress the plate further into a cone shape and then force it through the hole. Took a lot of effort, a lot of cussing, and a little bit of prayer, I think. I definitely wouldn't try it, I'll let folks with a lot more experience work this little bit of magic.
