ok, i'll start like this. i have an 07 400ex. the clutch has been going bad after riding for several hours for about 2 months now. I had the clutch adjusted and and it worked well for awhile but started failing again after about 10 hours of riding.... i'll be honest the bike has been roughed up a bit (rolled abour 4 or 6 times). anyways, i was going to inspect the clutch assembly to make sure everything is lined up and adjusted internally... well i can't get the clutch cover off... it sounds stupid i know, and i feel stupid.... I've undone the oil feed lines, secured the dowel pins and o-rings in a small cup, 13 8mm bolts that surround the clutch plate are removed, one 10mm bolt that is on the bottom and slightly to the right is removed. clutch cable is disconeccted. the reverse engagement assembly is disconected, and the foot brake is out of the way.... after using the search everyone always says turn the clutch arm counterclockwise and hold, than remove the plate... i have done that, and i have used a rubber mallot to try and break the gasket free.... as far as i know the clutch plate has never been removed...... is there anything i am doing wrong.... any help anyone can offer would be great!!! please and thank you.
