Clutch Me

It seems I need help sourcing a new clutch for my T100 Bonneville 790cc 05model.   My local store has not been able to contact a dealer who supplies them.   A mob called Barnett want to know how many plates are required but I wont know that till I come to do the job.

If anybody can steer me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.   Please don't bother suggesting the Triumph Dealer, I am NOT $$$ Rockafella $$$.

G'day TJ, I looked up a repair manual and there is 2 different clutches in the T100. The change takes place after Eng no. 211132. The early clutch has 7 friction plates (3 different types) and 6 plain plates  (2 types). The late clutch has 7 friction plates (2 types) and 6 plain plates (all the same type) I would suggest that you need a sample in hand prior to ordering the new one.  BTW is the old clutch slipping? Does the engine have car (friction modified) oil in it ? Cheers Tomcat

2 different Clutches,,, I expect that was where the Bonney went from 790 to 860cc , that engine No. will be a real help Ta !   I expect it is just worn at 80,000Ks and having used Mineral Oil yet being mindful of the friction stuff.   If I had saved all the money I didn't spend on Synthetic I could have paid for the new clutch and maybe had change.

Still searching ....

Thanks so much everybody

My searches so far seem to indicate that all bits need to be purchased seperately and come from England.   Delivery I am told will be six weeks.   Then there is a Volcano spewing forth its Jet engine retardant, so may even be longer.

I am loath to deal with Triumph Australia but it would seem I am over a barrell.  :-(

Elusive

Bike Bandit have two different Clutch kits and fail to explain which is which.   New Bonneville and Bella Corsa both have A kit for the T100 ,,, but which one is it ?  It also appears that they don't ship out of the States anyway.    Barnett Clutches have friction rings but no Springs or Plates, and so on and so on.   Serco was the first stop and don't have one but can get one from the UK.   I have spent the last couple of weekdays trying to secure a suitable kit.   I was told there are heaps and heaps of Bonny's in N.Z. but can't find any kits there either, very frustrating...

I shall give Jack Lilly a look in and see what's on offer there, thanks Kate, and everybody for that matter.

just a thought

Tj

is it the clutch that has worn or maybe just the springs have lost their tension -its not uncommon on our 270 motors

so if its just the springs its easy enough to change them over-Honda Blackbird are surpose to be a straight swap and their just a little heavier then the factory Triumph spring

I guess that's why getting a Kit was recommended to me.   While I have the engine case off might as well renew everything.  

I would'nt know if the Springs alone were worn out or not.    Everytime that case comes off a new Gasket is required at $40 a pop.  

Can't really afford to experiment. 

Is Italy closer ?   Maybe I would be better off with an old Guzzi,,,!!!      Actually, Tom Newell (Brisbanes only Guzzi shop) gets EVERYTHING he needs from the States in 2 days.

Correction

The $40 I quoted earlier was from some Over seas site.  Upon further investigation the price of the Gasket here is $17 something.  

I just felt I should straighten that out.
