To roll_it_on: What year was your son's DL1000?
I'm definitely interested in the Werks clutch basket. I thought all 2005+ Vees had the improved clutch basket. Mine definitely doesn't have good low-RPM manners, which surprised me because I'd heard from plenty of Vee owners how easy it was to slowly let the clutch out and let the bike "walk" itself in traffic. Even my DL650 and 1st gen FZ1 had no problem doing that (obviously, the big FJR did this easily too) and neither of them vibrated as much as the Vee does.
How much work is it to remove/install a new clutch basket? Is it recommended to use 20W50 with a Werks basket? Advice appreciated.
