Sprag Clutch Replacement C5 2010
« on: January 27, 2012, 03:58:12 PM »
Hi all!  Ends up my sprag clutch went on my C5 Classic 2010, so now I'm replacing it.  Are there any videos to help with the process?  I figured at least one person out there has had the same problem and had a camera in their hands!  Or is there a step by step illustration for it?  Cheers!

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.

Thanks, the warranty is up (over the year), about 6k on it.  No issues with the battery, I keep a tender on it and a volt monitor under my speedo.  :)  I had a mechanic check it out and bought the parts, was just hoping to save some cash and perform the spragodectomy myself!

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.

Thanks, I'm in no particular rush, its the off season!  I have the manual for it, just like more pictures, or moving ones. I find it easier to see the process rather than imagining it.  I may just plunge into it and take pictures as I disassemble to make sure I can reassemble! A better idea would be to make a video that way if I screw up we can review the tape  ;)

UK warranty is 2 years, second year is parts only. Isn't that so in the USA?

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.

That would be both restrictions on my RE!

Still give them a try as we were  assured these sprag issues were a thing of the past on the new  UCE.

How did this ever turn out?  Did you do it yourself? I think the Sprag Clutch on my 2009 C5 is going.

Hi guys...you'll usually find me in  the CLASSIC section... ;)...I grenaded my sprag clutch last fall...and couldn't even kick start the bike...being an 05 model it was WAY out of warrantee. I had to suck it up and take it to the closest RE shop (3hours away). Mike did the work...and also did some adjustments to ignition timing...I don't rely on the E-start anymore, I kick it over now.
I rode Japanese bikes as a kid...then I grew up and got some British Thunder

Hi all just an update, I ended up replacing it myself.  Actually wasn't that big of a job, just took some patience.  I would have loved to have the clutch nut holder for it to keep the clutch from moving, but a thick rag and a strategically cut piece of wood works, just need to be very careful.  It took me about an hour or so not knowing exactly what I'm doing.  Ever since then, the bike goes first push on the ignition, no issues.  The old sprag came out and looked fine until I separated it and about a half dozen teeth fell into my hand!  So, I guess that was the problem  ;)  If you need any help with it let me know.  Cheers!

Good to know it's a DIY job if it comes to it.  Can you tell us how much was the new sprag?

Timinator:  Makes me happy to know that the job isn't that bad..I probably have to do mine too..I thought the newer bikes had tougher hardeded sprags in them?  I've seen sprag type  clutches/bearings  on other things and wasn;t impressed then either..... Is your c5 striclty ES?
Oh Magoo you done it again

GreenMachine:  Unfortunately my C5 is only ES, no kicking on her.  Too bad because I probably would have left the sprag.  I heard that the bikes made after mine already had the better sprag installed.  Always the way!
