Clutch Plate Replacement

My Challenger clutch slips under heavy load at times. I'd like to put the Barnett clutch kit with the extra plate and upgraded springs in.

My question is, can I do this without actually removing the clutch basket from the bike? The service manual lists a "staking nut" (#4 in diagram below from the Challenger manual) which is torqued to 125 lb-ft which must be removed to fully take the clutch basket out, and of course this requires a special procedure for locking the crankshaft.

On the TS111 it looks like a very simple job (see this post) to change the friction plates and springs without major disassembly. Looks like you can take the pressure plate off without touching this "staking nut". Is the PowerPlus the same way?

I noticed the slip a couple times now when getting on it hard. Guess I’ll have to make sure they look at it when it goes in for 500mile service.

Just to update, my clutch cable play was too tight. Adjusted and it’s all fixed.
