the clutch on my 70 CB125 left early for christmas....

ok so i pulled the side cover off of the motor and see the clutch on my left but cant pull it off because there is a "bulb" on what i think is the crank on the right. the "bulb" hangs over the clutch. how do i remove the "bulb"? and what is it?
thanks

Dude. Get the manual. Or write a better description of what you're looking at, 'cause I don't EVEN know what you're talking about, and I've seen a few of those clutches.

ok i the manual. it says that my 'bulb" is the oil filter. and i need a 16mm t-handled box wrench to get it off...
then the clutch should slide out. i dont have the tool. it looks like a normal socket but with 4 teeth at the bottom. is there some where that i can get that tool or make it in some way?

here's the poop. Don't try to knock it off with a drift. You can try to make one with a big socket, just grind it to fit. Or, you can buy one, they are usually on Ebay. I was also told that they are available from any Honda dealer. It's the only way to get the thing off. Put a penny between the gears to keep it all from moving after you get the tool on it. (Make sure you knock the toothed washer back too.)

If you look in some of the bigger motorcycle supply houses catalogs, they also carry it. Look in the tools section

Or email me off line and I'll let you borrow mine. As long as I get it back.

Motion Pro makes the oil filter tool you need. You can probably get it at your local Honda store too. I tried to make one out of an old 3/8 drive socket, but once I cut the sides of the socket the tabs were too weak to take the torque.

Yeah, you can get those tools at a Honda shop for $10-15.

if youre going to pull the basket, you probably need to pull the slinger too. because the gears mesh with it. you can put it back on with the gears offset so you dont have ot later, or you can pull one of the sprockets off. if you dont have to pull the basket, dont bother doing ay of that. if you have a circlip for the oil slinger, one that holds it together that you had to remove to get into where the nut is, order a new one. they break alot when removing and installing.

Right. And as far as the size of the socket, they're all the same as far as I know, 23mm sounds right.

parts unlimited and tucker rockey carry them also. ask for the counter copy at your local m/c shop and look for yourself as any of the chromeshop boys behind the counter will have no fucking idea what you are after. look in the back under tools.

funny how the manual says 16mm though....guess that its not always right and it does pay to ask what might seem like a dumb question.
thanks for everyone that had something to say that helped.
