Clutch change

Well I change my oil after recently purchasing my 03 and the clutch still has an occasional slight slip on very high revs!
Never done a clutch before,but looks like I知 going to have to soon. I知 not too bad on the spanners,but I知 no mechanic,is it a straight forward job or difficult and will I need to purchase a repair manual to do the job guys
Thanks

Watch out for the washers as you pull out the clutch cover.. one of them can fall very easily..

I found that having the bike on side stand (instead of paddock stand) gives a better angle so that the washers don't fall out when you pull the clutch cover off.

I'd recommend a quick search of youtube, should be at least on instructional video

It's a pretty straight forward job.

The Honda service manual is pretty easy to find in PDF form. I would use that as a resource. If you can't find it shoot me a PM

My f4i has over 83,000 with at a very minimum 20,000 done 2up while riding very aggressive, still the original clutch. The previous owner didn't know how to ride. Pull your clutch and inspect before ordering a new one, make sure you need it.

'15 1000RR- weekend toy

Are you sure your clutch cable is adjusted properly and you have freeplay on the clutch lever?
