 :-/     Got talked into changing the  clutch out for a buddy's Smokin Joe.   Never done it before but seen it on a video.  ;D ;D ;D

   Easy enough or weasel out of it?   Special tools or can rig something and get by?  Tips?  Would like to help him out but don't want to screw anything up either.  I can usually figure stuff out, not a pro wrench or anything just  average.  Doesn't look too hard?   :P

By 'a buddy's Smokin Joe,' I assume you mean a CBR600F3. This is a crappy job because of the peened hub nut, clutch basket arrangement, etc. Weasel out, if at all possible.

 :P   Dang, I  ended up doing it anyway.  No problem!  Was way easier than I would have thought.  Hub nut came off with an air gun, basket arrangement not so difficult.  And best of all the darn thing shifted sweet!  How To Holeshot was the video I had seen that they did a clutch change and it was cool cuz the bike was a Honda also.   ;D
