Video Done!!! Problem solved

Hey,


I had to do this mod for the chattering and even stalling issue. As I let out the clutch at the lights, the chatter kicked in and was so bad it stopped the motor with the drag.


Part 1 - Disassembly

Part 2 - Basket Drilling

Part 3 - Clutch re-assembly

Part 4 - Cover install, comments and antifreeze change

Works as described. No more issues. I didn't mod the clutch pin, didn't need it.

Does anyone know if there were similar issues with the 2007-2009 gen2 clutches as well? Mine lurches a bit when shifting into first, cant adjust it out with the lever so I'm thinking somethings funky with my clutch... just bout the bike and need to oil change it first tho...

Do they still not make a modified basket?

What's the purpose of grinding the pin down?

I watched gav.man videos which were very good but I noticed he didn't grind it down, so is it necessary? How do you know if it is necessary or not?

Hope someone will respond as mine has always made a bit of a noise but lately has been sticking a bit so as I don't use mine much I may leave it as a winter project.

Clutch operates just fine. I'm just annoyed by the noise and worried about the longevity of the clutch with oil starvation. I'll let you know how it improves the noise.
Hello my friend , I know it's an old post but I would appreciate some informations cause I m sick of that clunking sound when I shift up or down . You said your annoyed by the noise , which noice ? And what about the oil , was it ok ? Does this mod worth it ? Cause I can't figure out from these comments if it worth doing it. Also I saw the videos of the mod and that guy didn't grind down the pin , how do I know if my pin needs to be grind down. I sorry for bothering you . :smile:
