Greetings esteemed Duc riders,

Been reading up for months, first post here.  I picked up my '13 Monster in July and just did most of the 7500 mile service in my garage with LT Snyder's manual.  Upon putting the clutch cover back on, I found a 5mm ID circlip (E type with 3 points of contact) on the ground.  I searched all over the bottom end, could not find where it belongs. 

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

FWIW, after some consideration I took it for a ride sans circlip.  No indication anything was wrong, but I don't like riding knowing something isn't secured.

Thanks,
Pete

Hopefully only off the bottom of the footpeg pin. Check each one.

A special model and the pinnacle of aircooled desmodue development imo.

Welcome. chug

I like Koko64's suggestion on the e-clip.

Even tho he's wrong about EVO being the pinnacle of the 2 valve form.  Not enough spark plugs  Grin

Great inputs guys thanks, will check those areas soon as I’m home from Thanksgiving Griswold-style road trip.

1 plug or 2 per cylinder, it’s way more pinnacle than my last bike, BMW F650 (one CYLINDER).  Consider me converted.
