Get thread! Something worth mentioning: That heat shield is made of ASBESTOS. Be careful.

Clutch Fork

I may have missed it but I haven't been able to find much about the clutch fork. I am not able to take a picture at the moment but mine seems a bit worn. I am having a real hard time finding a replacement clutch fork. Any suggestions?

Clutch fork

I didnt notice any unusual wear on mine, I think as long as your throw-out bearing is replaced( since it takes the abuse) you should be fine. Is it bent, or worn through? I recommend posting a couple of pictures, so that we can take a look.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was out of town but now that I have returned I am adding a couple pictures of my clutch fork and throw-out bearing. I decided since I was replacing the throw-out bearing and I couldn't find where to buy one that it would be okay to not replace the fork. It did look a little better after cleaning it up. There weren't any cracks and it wasn't bent. Name:  20130511_122813.jpg

Make sure to remove the fork and inspect the ball mount under it ! These can wear or bend.
If OK, lube the ball and re-install the fork.
