New clutch lifter mechanism.


Just fitted a new one of these to the SV last week and it has made an unbelievable difference.
I'd been having trouble finding neutral for quite a while, gears were generally notchy and the clutch was heavy.
I splashed out £50 for the new lifter/worm drive and fitted it. It took me longer to clean and generally fettle in the area than to actually fit the part.
Squirted some silicone lube down the cable inner and cleaned and regreased the pushrod while I was at it.
The difference is astounding! The clutch is so light now, the gearchange is buttery smooth and I can easily find neutral at a standstill again.
I'll try and get some pictures up this evening.

Re: New clutch lifter mechanism.


Well I know just so much. I learned originally on all the old Brit bikes I had. If you didn't learn how to take them apart and put them back together again then they didn't stay on the road for very long!

We never stop learning though, and nor should we. I have to tackle the SV valve clearances at some point. Checking them is fine, just need to lift the cam covers off. But if they need adjusting then I will have to take the cams out as they are bucket and shim unlike the screw and locknut tappet adjusters of my GK71F.

I like to do my own spannering as it gives me more confidence that the bike will work the way it should. I'm really keen to see maintenance tasks done properly.
