I'm freshening up this old girl - already replaced main seal & oil pump O ring and new flywheel bolts and blocked the crank . . .
Bought a new OEM clutch as existing was shiny like glass (bike has 80k on the odo). We used a micrometer to check all clutch components and everything is within specs.
Manual says to put grease on diaphragm spring - Haynes is vague and Clymer shows putting it around perimeter and on the fingers (side that bulges out). Was planning to use just a little Honda Moly grease - is this okay? Does grease also go on back of diaphragm spring that comes into contact with the flywheel?
I also know not to put grease inside the splines on the clutch - just on the transmission input shaft.
Also, I have a clutch alignment tool - if I use it do I have to do a "dry run" by lining splines up on transmission to clutch before battening down the clutch bolts?
Any suggestions / tips always appreciated.
