Thought I would put up a few pictures of what will face you when the sprag bearing plays up.

After the initial fairings off and the clutch cover and pressure plate/clutch plates out , the first obstacle is this, a nice round 60mm diameter nut.



Once a suitable tool can be found , apparently very common in Italy, but not so in the UK .
The front frame mount doubles up as a nice 3rd hand for the clutch basket holding tool.



After a good lever with a long bar and a few shift kicks of frustration of the vdue tyre the nut finally lets go and with renewed enthusiasm its the 15-20 m6 bolts removed to get the engine cover off. A bit of ' operation' with the cover to get it passed the frame etc , and a swift removal of the idler gear , we are there !! (top gear on right).



Whip the sprag housing off , removing the 4 m4 crappy csk bolts and thats it , bearing revealed !!



And only if it was that easy.

Hi Stu
Be aware of air locks when you start up again.

Bleed the oil is easy.
Getting rid of cooling air lock if you get one is difficult.
The water temp might not show as high but the header tank gets a bit steamy.

I did buy one of those little one's that attach to the clutch cover fixing bolts, but guess what ???? Bimota decide not only to use a different bolt arrangement for the clutch basket but also use a different bolt pattern to Ducati for clutch cover so it does not fit. !!!!!!
I'm with 2bim's, the spanner type tool must weigh about 6-8kg.
