Kawasaki ZZR 600 D 1996

Hi again Dave

See you still don't like saying what year your bike is?good job i know:smile

OK if you have removed the TEN 8mm bolts holding the case on and removed the clutch cable from the clutch actuator arm? then pull the arm back opposite to the way it pulls(left) about 40-45degrees.With a rubber or nylon dead blow hammer or a lump of wood(not a steel hammer)tap the case from top to bottom to loosen the gaskets grip and the steel dowels the case is held in place with(do not wedge a screw drive or any other metal objects in between the two cases as they start to separate)with your fingers waggle the case slightly from side to side while pulling towards yourself (you can use the oil filler cap hole to put one finger in to help with leverage) .Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:

ZZR clutch

I see you've done it now, but you need to disconnect the clutch cable, or the cover will not come off, no matter how hard you hit it.

If you break one, a replacement oil sight glass is approx £10 from Kawasaki.

The 2 above sentences are linked but I'm not telling how. Oh no. I'll let you work it out.... :lol:

Ps. Make sure the clutch actuator is correctly aligned before you do everything up.
