Clutch Replacement - remove water pump?

I have a 2018 700r, do you need to pull the water pump off to replace the clutch or just be careful and make sure the gear is engaged when re-installing the cover?

Thanks

On my 07 you can leave the water pump on the clutch cover... still have to drain coolant, obviously

I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up!

Drain the oil and coolant, then tip the bike over on it's side and prop, clutch side up. Pull the clutch cover and leave the pump connected. Easy access to all bolts and no oily, dripping mess. Do the full fiber mod and don't use Tusk clutch kit.

I had a slight leak to mine after using new OEM gasket. Cuervo has a reuseable gasket you might want to look into since you race a bit you might go through your clutch a bit more.

Wish I thought of that earlier. Took a couple hours to get old gasket off. Not looking forward to ever doing that again.

It would be nice if the side covers were made like my MX bikes, you can change clutch plates/fibers in 10 minutes or less.

"Direct Drive" in Damascus Oregon adapts a removable cover to a factory side cover. Talk to Scott or Lisa and tell them you know me by my real name, Larry Smith.

They also do Banshee and Honda 250R covers. Check their site for other KOOL stuff.

Tusk is bad?
