Are you sure? Warranty item? I thought mine had gone also, turns out the battery was dead. I would do lots of checking before tearing things apart. How many miles on your bike?Good luck to you.
I had mine done under warranty and I've seen the left side case open. Everything is right there. I can't imagine it's too bad. I can take a look in my factory manual tomorrow and see what the procedure is if you can wit a bit.Scott
Keven provides a full 2 year warranty covering both parts and labor for all of the newly sold Royal Enfields he imports to the USA.Unfortunately, the warranty is not transferable to a second owner or for bikes that have had a side car mounted.
CMW sells the Sprag Clutch Assembly PN570153, it has more components than just the Sprag Clutch and goes for $339.95 as of this morning. I find some sites that sell just the sprag clutch PN 560011 for about half the price of the assembly. It says it fits all ES 500cc, can anyone confirm that 560011 with fit a UCE?
Yes I think my Sprag Clutch is gone.....
They couldn't tell for certain if I purchased a new sprag clutch assembly that would be a newer stronger type or the legacy weak one. I sourced just a sprag from a German manufacture, it hasn't arrived yet. I'm going to try replacing just the sprag before shelling out the $330 for PN570153.
The Stieber sprag fits, its exactly the same size. In fact it appears to be identical in every way, so I dont know if it's any stronger than OEM. My sprag must have been slipping for a lot longer than I noticed because I'm surprised how fast my C5 stars now. I'll have to see how long it lasts.
I like that the new clutch has that spring band going down the middle of the sprags. That tends to keep them tucked out of harm's way unless there's enough centrifugal force to engage them. It also has they wavy wire cage to keep them located, more flexible than the solid sheet steel style cage that can shatter when the engine kicks back.Scott
