The "Werks" install

Just finished installing the modified clutch from Werks on my DL1000. With a page from the manual and the video from Werks it was dead simple. So glad I didn't pay someone to do it. Just need to torque the cover down and add fluids. Go figure none of my wrenches do 8 pounds of torque. Even if I have to buy the wrench I'll have saved a bundle. Of course there's a foot of snow outside and I won't get to test it for a while but feelin pretty confident. Like having a Christmas present you can't open till spring. Oh well. Looking forward to a chudder free summer.

8 ft lbs got me thinking and I went to the garage to check my bar type torque wrench.
With the 1/2 inch lug in the vice not a lot of effort is needed to achieve the needle moving to 8-10 mark.
Probably about that you could put on a screwdriver handle. You'd want an inch pound wrench to get it right.
96 inch pounds if my math is right.
You could tighten them by hand and give them a schmack with an impact tool with the right wrench on it and a rubber mallet.
I might be over thinking it but isn't this the case cover? you have a gasket and a bit of silicone to allow for non perfectly flat surface?

When doing the clutch basket swap there are two fasteners that are low torque. The clutch cover and the pressure plate springs.

If you don't have a very high quality "lbs. inch" 1/4" drive torque wrench don't even think about trying to achieve 7-9 lbs. ft. of torque on these fasteners! Even with a torque wrench like that I still tell owners to not trust them. Simply putting the palm of your hand over the head of a small ratchet and giving a gentle snug is ALL that you need. If you insist on using a torque wrench, practice on another fastener until you get the feel of when it "clicks" or when the readout changes.

I don't hear it as much as before. Mainly due to constant preaching about it. But I can tell you there are PLENTY of these small fasteners that were twisted off in the "torquing" process.

Done, I may have gone that one slice past snug to well snug but that's it. Time to dump in some oil and coolant then stare out the window for a few months. Thanks for all the help.

You don't have to wait for me, there's quite a few who can verify the werks mod. I asked around and got nothing but positive feedback. One was a quality mechanic I know personally. He installed one for a friend and was told the only problem was that he had waited so long to do it. For me either the chudder or the bike was leavin. And I like the bike soooo....

Did you get a new one or sent the old one for modificatios?
I am still on the fence (very stingy!!) , what's the worst thing that can happen if the chudder continues (apart from the annoying vibration)?

There is no real benefit to starting with a "new" basket and doing the modifications to it compared to using a good used core basket. Once installed you cannot tell the difference.
