Hi, I had my bike on the shelf for about a year with an ignition issue. Anyway, got it all sorted, was running good, and then I had an issue with the roller bearing that the clutch control lever pushes. When I was getting ready to go for a ride, there was a bit of noise coming from the transmission and then I lost the clutch & couldn't engage it. I then took apart the clutch control lever and took out the piston and noticed the roller bearing went bad. Now I'm wondering if there is an easy way to remove the bearing with out taking off the transmission. I have the control arm off and can see the bearing but can't figure out how to get it out. I tried a magnet, but since it went bad I'm afraid it might be stuck. I guess it comes out easy if you remove the transmission, but I don't want to do that much surgery if I can help it. Has anyone else had this issue with an early R100s or /7? Can the clutch control roller bearing assembly be removed without pulling the tranny? Any help is appreciated, as I'm trying to figure out the best way to go. Thanks!
