For me very much worth it!

Here is a thread I started after getting mine done:

https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000a...-consider.html

@realshelby does the modification. He has lots of happy customers for the mod!

Big B, Mulewright and Gert like this.

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

If your looking for a yes/no answer from those of us who have installed one, then yes-absolutely. It made my bike accelerate much smoother and quieter in the lower rpms which made it more enjoyable to ride. IMHO

I purchased my bike mid May, and the chudder was horrible. Took a chance and sent in the clutch basket. I am from Canada and the mod, plus gasket and extra nut, cost me about 510$ Canadian. There was also Duty to be paid, that was another 80$. I purchased the clutch tool from fortnine.ca for about 25$. All went well. My only complaint was the USPS website did not update the tracking information fast enough.

When I sent out the clutch basket, it cost me 30$ to send it, and took 4 days to get there. Took about a week and a half to get back.

Chudder is gone. I can ride in the same gear without feeling the chudder.

When I purchased my bike, I knew that it needed work, and there are many adjustments that are needed and for spending 600$ the chudder is gone and I can now focus on other issues.

That's a good chunk of change. It would be nice if Suzuki would address and fix the problem on future Vee's but it looks like that's not going to happen. The latest Vee clutch baskets have been beefed up but not enough. It appears the cost is $500 USD to $600 USD to buy a new modified or to trade your existing basket in.

We have Werk's out of Houston TX. and there's another entity in the UK that also does this clutch basket mod. I'm only at 8000 miles / 12874 km. I've already experienced " chudder ".

I would've liked to spend the money for other farkles but it looks like I may have to deal with this.

Thanks for your post.

Thanks for your post.
There are two other options. Send in your clutch basket for modification. $310 including return shipping in the US. You should have under $330 in the cost including your cost to ship to me. I can usually do the work in one business day and get them on the way back the day after they arrive.

I also have an exchange program. I build a basket on a good used core. Ship that to you. You install it and ship back your old basket. Adds $120 up front for US customers, but you get $100 of that back when I get your old basket back unbroken. And please send back your old basket! I have had to raise the cost of the up front exchange fee for international customers due to not returning them too often!

What I cannot fix is shipping to other countries. You can ship to the US much quicker than I can ship back. We don't have the Customs wait and issues here that seems to be common elsewhere.
