G50 Clutch fork Upgrade

My 1987 G50 clutch is nearing the point of needing replacement. I have read I will need an upgraded clutch fork and 32 mm sleeve to complete the clutch job properly. Has anyone documented the necessary procedure to change to the 32 mm sleeve? I have searched both Rennlist and Pelican and can't find anything on the subject.

Thanks for any help in advance,

George

check the weltmeister clutch upgrade. No boring needed - replace with simple tools. Oilite bearings.

Like this - http://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/shopcart/911M/POR_911M_Tclutc_pg6.htm#item21

The weltmeister kit lets you use their existing fork

G50 Clutch Fork

Is this the $161 upgrade? Am I correct in reading you use the existing clutch fork with this upgrade versus a new fork and bushing kit? Has anyone done either of these upgrades and if so, any problems?

As always, thanks for your help in advance!

32mm? Are you talking about the Guide tube?

If yes, it's and easy swap. If I remember, it was held in place with 2 screws. Just R&R.

The guide tube screws are notorious for stripping the philips head. Be sure to use the LARGEST screwdriver bit size to fit the screw head. And I recommend using a screwdriver bit with a ratchet to remove the screws. Lets you get more leverage and avoids the wobble and heavy pushing that's typically done when using a screwdriver.

Upon reinstallation of the guide tube, don't gorilla-tighten the screws. Snug is plenty tight.
