Exclamation 2006 zx6r Clutch Disengagement.

I am currently having an issue with my clutch disengagement. I've attached some pictures so that you may be able to agree with what I have found. Im pretty sure the issue is a overly worn out Clutch needle bearing. Part number 92046-1052.
Here are the pictures.


Almost seems like the bearing is worn down so much that it is too thin.





Im pretty sure there is a certain amount of space that the spacer and bearing are supposed to take up to put pressure on the pressure plate so that you get the correct amount of movement out of the clutch rod.



Seems to me the worn out bearing is causing the center clutch rod to extend more than it should (just like if you had pulled the clutch lever) Which in turn is causing the clutch rod that pulls the center rod to have to travel alot more before it actually pulls on the center shaft and disengages the clutch.





This is where a normal setup sits right before it starts to disengage the clutch.



And this is where mine sits till it starts to disengage the clutch. So something is wrong.



And this is where my clutch starts to disengage. That is way to far for the rod to be bending before it pulls the pressure plate.




What do you guys think? You agree it is most likely a clearance issue and the bearing is worn down severely?

has the bearing seized or is still free? what condition are the clutch plates in while it is stripped? i would imagine that if the bearing was worn too thin then all the rollers would be very rough or even falling out.

I believe I found the issue. Looking at the center rod that the throwout bearing rides on it is worn down on the end where the clutch release lever pulls it. I have read on another forum that if the bearing starts to wear down and seize the rod will spin and literally dremel out metal from the clutch release lever. Which by looking at the clutch release lever it is definitely worn down a great amount. It was hard for my to diagnose because I just bought this bike with this problem. SO i wasn't driving it when the bearing was going out.
