    My 2008 came off clean. If it hadn’t, I’d have used a chemical, not an abrasive. No need to risk pitting a scratch in the aluminum and having a leak. I sprayed the gasket with Permatex copper gasket spray and it sealed great.

    Man, this sure would have been helpful if I knew about this before I started the project!

    They sell them at HF if you have one close by. Fastenal has them, Ebay, probably Amazon or use google and and check auto parts stores

    BTW HF don't sell Roloc brand but the ones they sell work just fine

    Here is a kit on Ebay

    Where's the best place to get these Roloc disks?

    What a PITA that gasket is! Buttoned up and no leaks. Will see how long the EBC Spring will last? Thanks for all the help! For someone doing this for the first time I found that mineral sprite on a rag, razor blade and even a flat screwdriver used very lightly in the small areas you really can't get you hand into got 99% of the gasket off. Then I used (again very lightly) 400 grit sandpaper to finish off the little areas of gasket. Wiped down with brake cleaner and go to go!

    Use the blue. It won't hurt, and will give you a good peace of mind.

    It doesnt ask for it but I cannot see it hurt anything. The Barnett plate conversion that I installed did not ask to apply loctite.

    Since these bolts for the spring plate and the clutch cover are so lightly torqued, should I use blue loctite?

    Be patient on taking off the old gasket on the cover. You can even use paint stripper to remove. The gasket was the most time consuming task of it all. I would suggest changing out that #26 gasket in that parts diagram if you are going with another diaphragm spring. There were reports of new spring slipping shortly or low mileage after. I do believe the Clymer manual states for it to be changed along with the spring.

    Do what Dave said, just make sure all of the Allen bolts are removed. If the cover has been on there for along time, the gasket will hold it on fairly tight. There is a couple spots on the cover that you can wedge on.
    I would suggest using the Barnett clutch pressure plate, although it is about twice the cost of a diaphragm spring.

    Yes got all the bolt off. I've taken the shifter mechanism off since I took that pic

    If all the bolts are out use a rubber mallet on it and it should come off.There are a few dowels holding it on that need to be freed up. Did you get the bolt on the front bottom behind the kickstand switch?

    The wear-ring and the 6 bolts should be replaced according to the book, but if the ring looks good, a lot of us has reused that ring and bolts.

    You mentioned that you have just changed the oil, and after a few hundred miles the clutch started slipping.
    This leads me to ask you, what oil did you use when you changed the oil?
    Duke, it's been slipping for awhile. It's raining here for a few days so I thought I would fix it now! I drained the oil and removed clutch cable, shifter and black cover. But I can not get the chrome cover to come off. I have removed ALL the bolts. I made a template from the gasket to hold all the bolts. How much force should be used to get it off? Any ideas?
