How to Replace a Honda CBR929RR Clutch

Replacing the clutch in a Honda motorcycle with OEM parts is a great idea. However, for our Honda CBR 929RR, we installed the SRK series sport clutch by EBC Brakes, complete with Kevlar-aramid friction discs and stiffer diaphragm clutch springs. 

Whether you decide to replace the clutch on your CBR929RR with a sports clutch kit or with OEM Honda clutch parts, the process is exactly the same. Watch the video above and follow the steps below to replace the clutch on a Honda CBR 929.

Step 11. If you’re replacing the clutch with the clutch kit, install the larger ID friction plate first, then alternate between steel drive plates and friction plates, until finally installing the green outer friction plate. 

NOTE: The outer friction plate should be offset by one notch in the clutch basket from all the other plates.
