Question How to choose right clutch disks?

I would like to replace the Clutch disks, but can not determine whitch clutch system could be in my GL.

As you can see in attached files, I found that in GL1500 98 SE could be two differentent systems. One wtih disks A, B and C.
Another A and B disks only.
How to determine, whitch one is right for me?

My bike Goldwing 1500 SE 98

Thank you in advance.

That is usually determined by the bike's serial number. A dealer might know what the cut off number is. Do you have any dealers in Lithuania?

If not, you can post the number here and I can make a couple of calls.

If you have it apart you can ID the discs by these markings.

I think I need the actual serial number. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Thank you in advance.

One fiche is listed for '96 and the other '97-'98. Go with the MZO version for your '98.

If you look at the overview fiche for the '98 1500, you'll see two listings for "CLUTCH". Both of those sub fiche are shown.

With a serial number, a helpful parts guy should be able to say which one applies to this particular bike.

The VIN number determines the correct part number. Very rarely does the engine number play a part in determining what part to use. Bike... and Dennis are correct

Thank you in advance.

why, are they worn out? usually good to about 300k miles.


'97 to '00 clutch discs were upgraded as a result of the higher HP Valkyrie and fit all yr GL1500s. your '98 GW should have the upgraded disks. Easiest just use OEM listed for a valkyrie.
