After many years I decided to put the effort into making a clutch basket installation video. I have condensed it so that the easy, common sense stuff is left out but the technical stuff is covered. Recently finished building my new website so I have room for stuff like the installation page. Might add some pics later, but I think the video is worth a LOT of pictures!

Awesome Terry. Just want to mention Terry bent over backwards helping me install my clutch basket after I broke the oil drive gear thingy. Between phone calls, and texts, WHILE HE WAS ON VACATION, I got it installed and now all is good. Great customer service.

Thanks for taking the time to step through the changing of the Clutch Basket. I just changed my Clutch Basket and it could not of been any easier following your video. Made a huge difference to the running and performance of the bike. Bike had done 72000klm and was definitely in need of change as it was just too noisy. Thanks Again Dave

Glad it helped! I probably need to do an updated installation video of the new 2014+ clutch basket. They have a completely different inner hub/pressure plate assembly. Starting to get more of these baskets in the shop......

I might do some more stuff this winter. The 2014 and up DL 1000 is completely different where the inner hub parts are. That might be good to go over. Been doing more and more 2014+ clutch baskets as the miles pile up on those. 2018 is different again, but it will be a while before they need attention.

Wow! The WERKS clutch basket made my 2004 DL1000 Vstrom feel like an entirely new bike. I at first thought the bike was misfiring and running on one cylinder through the 2800-3900 rpm range, nope just the classic clutch judder. Super quick service and awesome quality workmanship.

I installed my Werks Clutch basket while watching this video, excellent help and visual support. Job was fairly easy except for me forgetting to buy snap ring pliers, thanks to my neighbor for the save. Terry does great work!

If you installed a WERKS modified clutch basket and the vibration (s) didn't go away you can bet they are not coming from the clutch area! As good as they are, they will ONLY fix problems with the clutch basket!
The friction discs and steels are not a source of vibration.
When I hear from customers that they have a vibration that is not fixed by a basket installation, or it starts sometime after installation, there are a couple things I have them check first.
1: By far the biggest problem is a worn front sprocket!!! If worn to the point one side is obviously shaped differently or the tip of the teeth are getting sort of sharp, that means the chain does not release cleanly....and you have a vibration very similar to clutch chudder.
2: Next would be the chain. ANY red dust around any of the links, or kinking of the chain, will also cause vibrations similar to clutch chudder.
After that there are several things that cause vibrations. Rear wheel not aligned ( or hub cushions shot ), bad spark plug wires, loose engine mounts have all been found to be the cause of vibration initially blamed on the clutch.

This a great video have you updated for 2018+?
The 2018-2019 are the same internally as the 2014-2017 as far as I can tell. I am waiting on info to confirm the 2020 DL 1050 is the same as the previous models.
