1985 FXSB Clutch Hub Issue

Question for Fix My Hog

Nick is wondering: I have an ‘85 FXSB that was experiencing some clutch slip and so I’m in the process of trying to upgrade to the scorpion clutch. My problem is I cannot figure out how to get the OEM clutch hub separated from the basket. I’ve tried several times using a puller and it just doesn’t budge. Is there a trick to getting these two components apart?

The clutch hub needs to be pressed out of the clutch hub bearing. The clutch hub bearing should also be replaced upon reassembly. Here is a video on a newer assembly.

      Hi Charles. If you are talking about pressure plate springs for a Barnett Scorpion clutch, the colors are Gold, Green, & Red.
      Gold is for the lightest spring pressure, Red is for highest spring pressure, Green is in-between.
