I put in the EPI clutch kit today. It seemed overwhelming at first because I don't like taking apart plastics on my bike. After I got everything out of the way, it seemed to go fast. Thank you truegrit for your clutch kit post. I printed it out and brought it with me when I installed the kit. The washers all came tumbling out just like you said. If it wasn't for truegrits write up I would have been lost. The EPI instructions didn't say anything about a triangle bearing and holding it on with grease. I had to make my own spring tool. And my brother was there to push the spring in while I strected them out. It went together without a hitch. No leaks ran perfect the first time. Made a huge performace differance on my bike. It will pull the 28's with no problem without any help. I feel it is the best mod that I have done so far. So again I have to thank truegrit for the writup because he saved me lots of time from going to the dealer to find out where the bearing and the 2 washers went. I never did see the directional bearing that you talked about, but I guess I got it back right everything works.
