    odd bolt on clutch cover

    noticed it yesterday due to it being rusty, all of the bolts holding the clutch cover on are hex heads except for a allen bolt at the rear, near the back side of the the bike, its a high tensile allen bolt with a small (2.5 or 3mm hex hole in it) anyone know what it is, a drain in case you overfill the sump or something??, look like it will be a bloody mission to get out if its rusting up in there!!, I'll have to wire brush and aint it at the least to still it corroding further.

    allen bolt

    Yep, I had it on mine too.

    It is some kind of centering bolt (I think) before you tighten all the others. Someone here may know more.

    Enginia, where are you ????


    Nathan, check the workshop manual, I remeber reading something about it.

    Cheers

    Yep, there's 2 of them. One is just clockwise of the topmost screw, the other is as you describe, Nathan.

    If you remove one, you'll see it has a long shoulder on it, before the thread starts. The shoulder lines up the cover properly. So well in fact, if you don't start them first, you could have a hell of a time getting them in at all.

    The gearbox uses centering dowels to do the same job.
