Clutch holder absolutely necessary?
My bike has just over 4,000 miles on it and the clutch is slipping to where its unsafe to ride. I've already tried adjusting the clutch cable and no luck. I downloaded the service manual for a 2011 in another thread and the manual states that I need a "clutch holder". Is this tool really necessary? Is there anyone here that has an extra one that I can buy if I need one? I'm having problems finding a clutch cover gasket online. Can I just use Grey RTV to install the clutch cover or do I need to find a gasket for the housing? The clutch repair kit I purchased was the EBC SRK complete clutch kit. My riding style consists of numerous highway pulls (rpm's up then dump the clutch), rolling burnouts and several 9 second passes in the quarter mile at the track.
