Arrow Clutch Plate replacement on V-Star 1300

Hey guys, I need a write up/how-to directions to replace the clutch plates on a V-Star 1300. I have a 2007 and my clutch plates burned up. I attempted to do this myself, but the instructions weren't all that detailed so I ran into a stopping point. I have all of the clutch plates, the steel plates and while I was breaking it all down, I found the inner clutch plate and steel clutch plate with the thin clip needed to be purchased so I bought that. I figured since I was going to replace this, I might aswell upgrade it so I bought a carbon fiber kit.

So if anyone has a detailed instructions on how to do this, that would be great. I was going to take the bike up to a shop 40 miles away, but I can't get it loaded up on a trailer, because I guess I started to break it all down with it in gear. It's a heavy so I can't roll it across my shop and onto a trailer to take it to a motorcycle shop 40 miles away.

Thanks!

Sounds like you just about have it figured out. Don't forget to soak the clutch plates in oil overnight so you don't burn up your new clutch.

Go here and download the service manual. Then go to page 5-46 and it should become clear. You didn't remove the housing, did you?

I have just the plates as seen in the exploded diagram. I haven't taken it apart down to the chain or anything. Just where down to the #9 & #10 on the diagram on page 5-48. I was hoping for a Step by Step instructions. I'm usually pretty good with this kind of stuff and the exploded view seems like it is self-explanatory, but it's more difficult than that. What I have is similar. Maybe I'm just a little overwhelmed with all of the parts and don't know where to begin. I guess I just need to sit down and take it one part at a time.

I've never dealt with a transmission before. I've taken apart and put together alot of mechanical things in my life, but not a tranny, whether it be an vehicle or a cycle
