How hard is it to change the Clutch Basket on the 1000's? I've got a 2002 with 6,000 miles and would like to do the work myself...also, what parts are required? Thanks!

Why would you need a clutch at only 6,000 miles? and why do you only have 6000 miles on an 02?I have 6000 miles on my 06 bought in Jan o6 and the clutch is fine.

It's not the "clutch" - it's the basket that holds the clutch plates. A well-known and discussed problem on DL1k's.

As for only 6k in 4 years? Now THAT I do not understand!! :p

I've put on over 6k since late Nov on mine!!

Anybody stop and think maybe he bought the bike used from someone who never had time to ride and got a good deal? :roll:

I thought those were the kind of deals we all looked for 8)

Dude, if you're going to be snotty at least get the words right: it's "poser" or "poseur," not "psoeurs."

Arkasha...........relax and take a moment will ya. It was only a spelling mistake, we all make them now and again. Night_Wolf was stating a fact, there are posers everywhere.

I bought my '02 six months ago with 3K on the clock - thats what I call a good buy. My clutch vibrates between 3000 and 3800 rpm and is getting worse. I took it back to the dealer who said it wasn't vibration -it was just the power coming in!
After that I kind of lost faith in him and I've decided to do the job myself. Unfortunately here in the UK we are known as 'Treasure Island' to the automotive industry as they rob us on everthing they sell and the parts will cost me almost £200. In the US you can get them for $200. Thats a 40% mark up here.
If you need the clutch holding tool M&P sell one at a very reasonable cost

Gee I guess you have never made a spelling mistake eh :roll: I didn't think there was anything "snotty" in my post. Maybe you could grow a thicker skin or did I hit too close to home for you :roll:

The reason that I have to change the clutch basket is that my bike is an '02 and this year had a faulty clutch basket that creates a vibration between 3 and 4 grand on the tach..this was remedied with a new part number clutch basket from early '03 on up to the current year. I guess that gent with the '06 would know all this if he was an informed V-Strommer..perhaps he is a "poseur" ...I think this must be the French spelling for poser...
