Change the clutch by 4RT 260 Build 2019

Recommended Posts

I have a question about changing my clutch.
The owner manual says on page 4-44 that I have to do the following before removing the clutch cover:
"Pull the clutch lever and hold it with a suitable clamp"

Please, can someone tell me why?
I have concerns because then generate pressure in the clutch line and when i unscrew the clutch cover, the piston of the auxiliary cylinder pops out and the clutch fluid leaks.
For my understanding I don't have to pull the clutch to relieve the system.

I’ve stripped clutch several times without doing this .

Maybe not correct by the book but seemed ok

I wouldn't bother with that, like jimmyl I have had my cover off more than once without issue.  Just to be sure I just blead the system after words, lets me swap out the old fluid as well as to make sure there isn't any unexpected issues.  Works a treat.

Thank for all the answers. I changed my clutch now and indeed it seem that the owner manual is wrong for this part. 

I've you pull the clutch lever and you open than the clutch cover you will run in a problem.
