Werks clutch basket install - pictures !

Hello all,

What I'm posting are some pictures of the removal and installation of my old clutch basket vs the upgraded WERKS clutch basket.


I opted to send in my low 8,000 miles - 12875 km basket to WERKS instead of an exchange.

The complete turn around time from California to Texas was less than a week.

I am very happy with the product, service and just the whole situation. Terry from WERKS is top notch.


RESULTS ! I have a smooth quiet operating clutch. Initially I noticed how much easier my Vee launches with the WERKS basket installed.


NOTE: Each picture links to a larger picture.

WERKS instructional video. How to disassemble and assemble the clutch basket for the DL1000 and SV1000. Very helpful !

Thanks for the pics! That's low mileage for the Werks upgrade... what were the deciding factors?

I had chudder a couple of times.

Plus the launch was ambiguous, it was very jerky, like it would wind up and release a couple of times during the same launch.

I would wince wondering how bad it would be during take off.


It was a good thing I sent it in to WERKS because the basket was out of round and out of balance.
