How did the clutch get into this? Is it slipping? Is it just time to change the clutch? If so, then by all means do the throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and fork pivot (fork should be ok). It's easy if they have to do the clutch.
May want to have them check the tranny mounts. Cheap while you're in there and they may have been taking some torque as well.
Well, I took it in this afternoon and the guys at the shop said my flex-disc is torn and the drive-shaft center bearing feels spent. It is causing the assembly to hit the shifter under torque loads. Looks like it is time to drop some more money. I guess it looks like guibo, drive-shaft w/ center bearing, and clutch kit w/ throw-out bearing (at my discretion). OUCH.....time to save for the next month!
