The 89-95 5-speed SHO uses two plastic bushings on the clutch fork. Over time, these bushings will wear out, so we recommend you replace them when you change your clutch. Factory bushings have been obsolete for a while, so we created our own bushings. These SHO Source bushings are just like the original bushings (including the two different lengths). Clutch fork bushings can only be replaced when the transmission is removed. These new bushings are a snug, but sliding fit into the transmission housing (be careful and take your time installing them).
Prior to installing the bushings, make sure they easily fit on your clutch fork shaft. You may need to clean up your clutch fork shaft with some fine emery cloth to get a nice fit. Next fit the bushings into the transmission housing. I have seen them fit tight and loose depending on the casting and corrosion. You do not want to drive the bushing in place, but they should fit snug (but removable). You may need to clean up the aluminum housing with a small round file to make sure the bushings fit well.
This product included TWO clutch fork bushings (for a complete job). There is one short and one long bushing.
Always follow the instructions in the repair manual when changing the clutch cable or clutch cable bushing. You need to be very careful not to damage the clutch adjuster mechanism, as they are no longer available.
