You need to use the spring that came w/ the factory kit, it is thicker that provides more pressure on the detent arm. u will need a 6mm washer behind the spring to give it proper clearance so the arm moves freely....these need to come w/ a kit that costs $170, but any local hardware store will have it...

is there any way to fix the overly large images on this page? i'd like to use this writeup, but the page is impossible to view. i'm assuming it was part of the KF buyout.

oh and where do you buy this kit and how much does it cost?

From www.factorypro.com or on ebay.

It's a must for 05-06 636 & ZX6RR's especially if your bike has just started shifting issues. Much Cheaper than a new transmission plus smoother shifts. Great for racing or trackdays; Stunts too.

About $170

resurrection time

is the new Clutch Hub Nut necessary, or is that because yours got messed up?

And the kit comes with a factory gasket?

go to your local bike shop, buy the 20 dollar clutch holder tool. then go to checkers and pick up a 27mill socket. then run to a brakes plus or discount tire, trailer your bike there or in the back of a truck, ask them to zip that nut off for you. rather than bashing the clutch hub nut with a chisel, possibly bending the input shaft and costing you more money.
this aint Harley : )
other than that good right up.

I attempted to do this method but have failed. i could not get the clutch hub nut off. The bike was in gear but it'd still rotate. I tried several ways but it seems like you have to have the clutch tool and possibly another person with you. There goes another day. Sigh
I see a lot of people from San Diego in this forums, so thought I might ask. If anyone is willing to lend a brotha a hand please let me know.

The kawi clutch holding tool listed in the manual works great. A little pricey but much better than the $20 tool at cycle gear. I took that one back cause clamp part was too thick and would not fit in the hub teeth. I didn't want to spend the money on the tool but I already had it apart and wanted to do it right.

Just let the kawi tool arm rest on the footpeg and nut comes right off. Then have someone hold it underneath the footpeg when you tighten it back down.
