SE 6 speed
« on: February 11, 2018, 05:48:31 AM »
I just installed an SE 6 speed in my 06 RG. Very nice kit. Went without any problems. Question is with the clutch rod. It seems they eliminated the oil slinger on the transmission side. Didn't see a reason for not using it but went with the new parts. Does any one know why they stopped using it. Seemed like a good idea to me.

Different Rod.

The Slinger is used with the Short Rod. Why they don't use one? Don't know.

It's primary purpose was to lubricate the Trap Door Bearings. Perhaps it's not needed with the Upgraded Bearings?

Had the same questions when I installed one a few years back.

Are you talking about the inner rod? If yes, then you are correct, the SE 6 speed inner rod (originally used in early FXR) is slightly longer. I have the measurements here some where. The shorter rod that the slinger is on is the same size for the SE just minus the slinger. I used the SE on mine but may see if the original with the slinger will fit under the SE cover when I have it apart next month.
