    Piaggio Fly - clutch clean

    is there an easy way to clean the clutch without taking it apart ? i've read i can take the outside cap off

    and spray it with brake cleaner ?

     

    Cheers

    Think you will need to remove transmission cover to clear out any dirt grease you displace Sad

    If its a dry clutch, then simply removing the cover and hosing out the backof the transmission section will clear the dust from the clutch.

    Most standard transmission services  include lubricating the variator weights. Don't get water on the variator.

    And when its all done make sure you get rid of the water then give it a run to get everyting hot to expell any water that might remain.

    Don't blow air over the transmission unless you have a control on the dust, the dust is very bad for your lungs.  I know asbestos is banned in Australia but any parts made inChina are a risk, don't trust them.

    I used some wheel cleaner. Took the cap off and flushed it out. Lots of dirt came out and good as gold now...
