The Werks Worked and Clutch lever ??

I had to wait months after rebuilding the clutch with the werks mod to drive the bike. Months of did I do this right or that right. Well the snow is nearly gone and I squeezed it out the door and "Down the road I go". Wow what a difference. The feedback you get from the bike is so much better and all the chudder is gone. No oil or coolant leaks so all good. WELLLL, except to fit it through the door I had to remove the bark busters and sure enough I broke the end off the clutch lever. Still the joy of the fix took the sting right out of the lever. So now the question is since I have to replace one anyway is there an upgrade I could be looking at? Thanks Terry for the chudder cure.

Glad you appreciate your WERKS modified clutch basket!

While there are aftermarket levers available, you must be sure they fit correctly. Many don't, and cause all sorts of issues. OEM is the sure fit but expensive. I am sure some will chime in on replacements that don't have issues.

Also Ran,
I can't help you on the lever replacement question, but I can fully agree with the WOW response you got from the Werks chudder cure. I was sort of in the same situation you were in --- couldn't get the bike out and test it right away due to weather once I had the Werks mod installed. Fortunately I didn't have to wait months. I was too antsy so I took it out for the test ride in the cold Cold COLD temps. Yep, I have a brand new 2008 V-Strom now.

I'm with you. Best money I've spent on the bike so far... I did mine in January, rode it 3 miles in the cold and then didn't touch it again until I loaded it to haul to Daytona for bike week. That was a bit nerve-wracking because if I had screwed something up, I had a long week to think about it while the buddies were riding. Apparently I did everything right because all I did was enjoy previously unusable rpm range.

Terry's video tutorial is perfect. No doubt I could have done the job without it, but it's reassuring to review some of the details to be sure.

What I did find was that when cruising around slow and easy, the bike likes to "cough" or "sneeze" occasionally at around 2600rpm. That's the next task. I haven't read up on it too much yet, but I'm guessing lean...

Where are you at, Yarz1? I'm in Beaver County...
