    91 K75RT clutch release boot

    Does the muffler have to be removed to change the boot? I can't see any way to move the release lever to get clearance without removing the muffler.

    Can the boot be changed with the lever in place?

    Do you mean the cup #6 ?

    Squeeze the clutch release on the handlebars.
    Stick a wedge or something between the clutch lever and the muffler so the lever can't move back when you release the clutch.
    Disconnect the lower end of the clutch cable from the clutch lever.
    Remove the wedge.

    You can now easily move the lever #7 that depresses the clutch rod. The rubber cup can be removed after you unscrew the clamp#5. There is a spring behind it. If you remove the piston #3 make sure you don't reassemble it backwards.

    Yes #6. After I disconnect the cable, I can only move the lever a very short distance before it hits the muffler. What am I missing here?

    If you loosen the #9 lock nut and the #10 screw you should be able to remove the cup.

    Also the boot is holding you back. I ripped mine as I was taking pieces off. I should have removed the clamp first and take the boot off from the base. As in mine, the clamp was stuck into the rubber boot due to age. Since the boot was already ripped, I just tore the clamp away from the boot. Although I may now also need a new clamp because the edges are now irregular and may cut into the new boot.

    I took the muffler off to give more room. When I tried to put the new boot on, I had trouble with the spring pushing the boot back. I ended up putting the spring and boot in place, then moving the release lever back and re hooking the cable.

    I then positioned the boot and put the clamp on.
