I have an '82 GL1100 with the engine out for stator replacement.

Here is my question; is it possible to judge the thickness of the friction discs without taking the clutch apart? I am thinking that the total thickness of the stack of discs should give a pretty good idea of the thicknesses of individual discs.

It is just that I do not have the special wrench to take the centre bolt off to take the clutch apart.

Thanks
Brian

You won't be able to tell the condition of the mating faces, which is where all the wear and tear occurs.

How many miles on it?
Is this a new bike to you, know the history?
They will usually go 100,000 miles or more if used and kept adjusted properly.

From the position of the outer plate I would say it is in like new condition.

Of course that is the answer that I was hoping to hear. The bike has 45K miles so I think I will take a chance on it.

Thanks for all the responses
