1. Remove the key from the ignition switch. Loosen the vent hose on the cover. Remove the clutch cover bolts (10mm socket) and take the clutch cover off. You will need to unplug the wires from the electric actuator and small sensor in the center of the clutch cover to totally remove the cover. To unplug the wires from the sensors, follow the wires to the connections under the plastic side panel and unplug at that location. 2. Remove the primary clutch bolt (19mm socket). This is a left threaded bolt. Insert clutch puller by hand (right hand threads) and tighten until clutch pops off the shaft. This tool is available from EPI, part number PCP-10. Loosen the secondary clutch nut (27mm socket) and remove both clutches at the same time. When you slide the secondary clutch of the machine there are four metal roller pins inside the center shaft of the secondary clutch. These will normally stay in place but if one does fall out refer to assembly instructions in step #6. 3. Disassemble the primary clutch by removing the eight bolts on the cover plate (10mm socket) and remove the spring. Remove one nut (10mm) on the bolt that holds the weight in place, slide the pin out of the clutch and remove the weight. Install EPI weight making sure the tip of the weight is resting on the inside ledge of the clutch. Slide bolt through the holes in the clutch and the weight and install the nut. Repeat this step for the other three weights. NOTE: If your kit has two different gram weights, for example two 54 and two 56 weights, be sure to place them directly across from each other (or every other one). This keeps the clutch in balance . 4. Install the EPI spring and bolt the clutch cover back on using a criss-cross pattern to tighten down the cover. There is a mark on the cover plate and the spider usually in the form of a dot or arrow in the casting. These are alignment marks and must line up when the clutch is assembled. 5. EPI recommends cleaning your clutches when you have them off your machine. Use a clean rag or towel with contact or brake cleaner that does not leave any oily film. Clean all parts of the clutch except for the clutch bushings. Solvent can damage your bushings; just use a dry rag to clean them
