Talking Werks clutch review

Hi, just fitted one of Realshelby's clutch baskets to my 2006 1000.
NO MORE CHUDDER! Noticeable smoother shifting is a bonus, but did I mention
NO MORE CHUDDER! Smooth usable power from idle all the way through the rev range. The difference the clutch has made to the way the bike rides now is amazing. Thanks again Terry for your services, worth every cent.

I installed mine last weekend on my 2006 Vee. Makes a noticeable difference.

Cheers,
Eric

I rode mine for the first time with the modified basket yesterday. Big improvement. Well worth it.

No longer a Vstrom Owner - fantastic bike! Now sporting a KTM 990 Adventure

I'd like to do this to my 05' as well but I'm not confident in doing the work myself. Can anyone recommend someone in the SF Bay Area?

This is actually a very simple procedure and i found it quite enjoyable. I had the same reservations about it, but I just followed the pictures (I had them printed out) and was careful how i took items off so i knew how to put them back. The only really painful part for me was getting the old gasket off both sides of engine block without scratching anything, oh and that broken clutch plate bolt that i overtightened.

The good thing about this mod is it all happens on easily accessible parts of the bike, so your ok if you have large hands.

If you bike is getting up there in miles, it's a simple job to replace the mechanical seal in the water pump while you're in there. Mine started to drip at 30,000 mi.

I did the job on Saturday morning and went for a ride that afternoon. What a difference. It was like a whole different bike. Best thing I've done for her so far. Did the waterpump seals while I was in there. Not a bad job at all.
