Can someone recommend a mechanic who can do the clutch basket modification? If that works I'll pop for a Power Commander to smooth out the rest of the ride and see if I can keep her going for another good bit!
Thanks in advance - Steve
There were some of us that started out with modifying clutch baskets with washers to help chudder. While that worked to reduce the chudder, it sure isn't anything like a properly modified clutch basket! Even the washer fix isn't something most shop mechanics would try to do.
The clutch baskets need a complete disassembly and rework. Considering they are held together with rivets from the factory, this isn't something the average guy can do at home. They require machine work to fix and even if you have a machine shop locally costs to do a one-off bearing and other things make the cost rather high.
That is where I come in. I have two lathes, a milling machine, and all the fabrication equipment needed to build a modified clutch basket. I machine my own inner bearings, machine the mount and bearing for the outer plate, machine the bushings to reinforce the inner plate. These are custom made parts that would take a shop quite a while to duplicate. I built 20 or more at a time, which cuts costs considerably.
A fully modified clutch basket that will outlast your bike for $310 INCLUDING shipping in the US! These modifications are extensive and include a second bearing in the outer plate of the basket that the factory does not have in a stock basket. I keep exchange clutch baskets in stock so there is no downtime. Very popular when having a shop do the installation.
