    You need a 6 bolt basket with plates and steels from a 99 onwards S or any TLR,fitting is a breeze and can be done on the sidestand without draining your oil.Remember to loctite spring posts etc.

      you need the entire clutch inc springs cam mechanism etc less a pressure plate.

      It never ceases to amaze why people ask for advice then when I give it they either ignore it or argue against it.
      But then I don't know all that much about TL's

      wwjd.......what would jimmy do.

        RHS clutch pushrod is a different length when going to a 6 spring unit too.

          It needs to be 100mm IIRC

          I know mine was a little long when I finally left it and thought I couldn't be bothered taking any more off, and adjusting the clutch again.

          Mine is at present 102.6mm and works fine, but the adjuster screw is wound right out.

              The 6-spring basket and hub will take the early 6-spring disc pack or the late-model 6-spring disc pack which has 2 more discs, which is what you want to use.

              The clutch cam set is always the first thing to go on any TL clutch, so I recommend getting that set of parts new.
