Clutch is shot... I need a shopping list.

Ok... Other than the obvious of friction plates, steel drive plates, springs and regular tools, what else do I need?
Gaskets?
Anything I should do to the water pump besides R&R in the process (seals, impelar, etc).
Any special tools needed?
Anything else I should deal with while I have it this far apart?

I just dont want any surprises when I go to pull it apart one Saturday afternoon and can't put it together until I get that one thing that was forgotten about that none of the shitty local deaers have in stock.

This is on a '08 KLR 650 with about 20,000 on the odometer.

TIA, Bryce

Curious how did you kill the clutch?

Tom Schmitz did a great video of taking the clutch hub off post #144 here

Mississippi Mud on the TAT last summer. Our wheels just kept getting loaded up you'd get a few feet, load up, run hot, stop to cool and clean out the wheels... Repeat that about 30 times, and that was that. I actuall road it another 1200 miles on our trip, but it slips bad on hard acceleration and long hills now.



This was the start of the mud when it was still fun and I was aking pictures rather than fed up and wanting the hell out.
