Hey All. Looking to replace my friction clutch plates. I have done this on a triumph bonneville before but never my 450’s. Been looking for kits but haven’t found any for the 450 just the 250s. Was wondering the exact parts I would need…. From what I think I will need
-6 friction plates. Going to clean up the steel plates.
-Clutch cover gasket
  • clutch nut removal socket
  • replacement springs (4 of them)
  • new clutch nut ( just incase old one gets messed up)
  • I have a impact gun I will be using.
I’m not sure about what I’ve been reading about the nut or lock that has to be drilled or chiseled to get off. Can you enlighten me about that? Is that need to just replace the disks or is that to get the whole basket off? Anything else I am missing or any helpful hints for me? Thank you! I see a lot of 250 clutch replacement videos but not many 450 videos. Thanks!

You need to remove the skirted (lock) nut to get the basket off. If you're lucky, the skirt wasn't driven too deeply into the slot on the clutch shaft and it can be levered up/out. If not, you'll need to drill or otherwise remove the driven section of the nut and replace it with a new one. Driving the skirt into the slot is what keeps the nut from coming off.

Clutch replacement is pretty basic and similar between both Rebel models. 450- Honda Motorcycle 1987 OEM Parts Diagram for CLUTCH | Partzilla.com 250- Honda Motorcycle 1987 OEM Parts Diagram for CLUTCH | Partzilla.com

Pretty much ordered everything I need to replace the friction disks. Was hoping to find a clutch removal socket but haven’t found one on the internet. I may have to make my own out of a socket.. does anyone have a go to site for this socket for the 450?
