no no i had done the oil prior to it breaking. like 3 days before said clutch went out. it was not ran for long periods of time due to no oil of course. so just look up how to drop clutch on tranny? youtube would be my best bet huh?

assuming the clutch discs/friction plates are what need replacing, less than an hour.

if the basket has broken, it will be a bit longer, but not much. this is of course assuming you have all the parts/tools avail.

btw, with the bike on side stand, you can change the discs/frictions without loosing any oil.

also still confused as to why there is no oil there. it would take a broken engine case to do that.

no need to pull the clutch, you should see a hole somewhere in the engine/trans case where its leaking.

as a side note: while our clutch is an oil bath type, it does NOT sit in oil when the engine is not running. the oil is pumped through the oiling system and some gets sprayed onto the clutch for lubrication. checking the clutch for oil will show that oil has been there, but is NOT there when you take it apart (It drains down to the sumps)
