So I'm looking to buy the manual. I see the genuine Honda repair manual and the clymer manual. Is there a advantage of one over the other? I would think the honda one would be better but I've used clymer manual in the past. They have tips and tricks in them sometimes instead of use this special tool only etc.


Thanks in advance guys.

I would definitely buy the OEM manual. Ive used clymers for various manufacturers and they just aren't the same quality as OEM.

As for the aftermarket brands, I cannot remember the names. just cheapies off ebay - This was years ago. I haven't touched a aftermarket since.

They are pricey but not worth taking apart twice.

Ok guys, so I got my manual in. Tonight I removed the front cover and the centrifugal clutch.

The book says the clutch should spin counterclockwise in the basket but not clockwise. I can spon it easy counterclockwise but can for the life of me spin it clockwise. Granted I'm only using my hands. Seems like with my hands it should be good.

But I remember riding it it would hold engine braking for a little ways down the hill before it would release and start flying down the hill.

Am I right in my logic that the bearing could still be bad just not totally failed?

I'm replacing the bearing for sure, just want to replace anything else while I'm in here if needed. Dont want to have to take this thing back apart.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

I think you are on to something in that the bearing may be bad even though you can't put enough beef on it by hand to make it spin. Do you have any way to put more force on it like using a strap wrench or something? If not, just replace the bearing like you planned and see how it works.

Also, to determine direction of rotation, you need to be looking at the clutch from the proper side, and there must be some information in the manual indicating which side of the clutch you are supposed to be looking at when determining direction of rotation.

Probably a stupid question. So I forgot to get the Honda bond sealant. Is something special about this stuff of will just any rtv sealant work? I'm a hour away from my nearest honda shop. I wanted the grey so it would look factory but other then that dont see the point. Thx

Yes Hondabond doesn't get hard and break off. It stays mooshy. Use Hondabond, Yamabond, or Threebond. Do not use RTV.
