I have a 2008 M109R and thought I had been experiencing some occasional shudder taking off in 1st gear. I just loctited the tube nut and ground the push pin and reassembled the clutch with the original plates as they had about 12K miles on them and showed no indication of heat stress or wear. I left the push pin at the same adjustment it was when I pulled it out. I did not touch the clutch lever adjustment either during disassembly or reassembly. In squeezing the clutch lever, there is nothing there-no resistance to the pull at all. I'm looking for some guidance here as I thought as long as I did not install new plates the prior clutch adjustment settings would be fine. before I tear things apart I'd figure I'd canvass the experts here.
