Not too difficult, access is easy as there is a dedicated cover for it, soak the new plates in oil before installation

Find the part where he does the clutch, great videos.

Someone posted a list in the past day or so that shows what each part covers.

If it’s been sitting for that long i doubt the clutch just “went”. Most likely an issue with binding. Check the free play and you didn’t say whether it is stuck closed or open. If it’s not slipping it’s definitely a stuck clutch not a bad one. If it is slipping remove the clutch arm completely and see if it will grab.

Before you replace your clutch its a good idea to see how the clutch works and the symptoms of a bad clutch. A clutch will have problems and can stop working all together by either slipping, not engaging or not disengaging which is normal when a clutch is going out due to wear or a mechanical failure.

Exactly what do you mean when you say “the clutch goes”?

What is it doing? (Or not doing)

Other than the “coffee grinder” issue these clutches are pretty sturdy.

The Vulcan 750 clutch will definitely stick if not used on a regular basis. I let mine sit for about 6 weeks once and like to never got the clutch broke loose. I put the bike on the centerstand, started the engine with it in neutral, pulled in the clutch, revved the engine, and just kept stepping on the rear brake. Killed the engine several times before it finally broke loose.
