For years the only answer to getting rid of clutch chudder was to buy a new OEM clutch basket. That only lasted for a while as once you know the feel of the vibrations of a worn basket you can feel them coming on in well under 10,000 miles on an OEM clutch basket. Suzuki DL 1000, SV 1000 and Kawasaki KLV 1000 all have a design flaw in the clutch basket that promotes wear. This causes internal parts to move out of place. This puts the clutch basket out of balance, but most importantly effects the damper springs ability to control power pulses from the engine. This results in an uncontrolled vibration known as clutch chudder.
The engineering and fabrication that go into the design of a WERKS modified clutch basket address these OEM problems and improve upon the original designs performance and durability.

If you have excessive vibration in the lower rpm range or excessive noise coming from the clutch area we can help! Known on some forums as the "realshelby" clutch mod. If you have worries about your Oilhead BMW RT, RS, R, CL, GS having final drive failures, look at our Final Drive Minder page.
Final drive failures on BMW Oilhead motorcycles are well documented. The Crown bearing is usually the culprit. While there is debate on whether it is a design issue or an installation issue, there can be enough warning to keep you from being stranded on a trip! That is where the Final Drive Minder from WERKS Parts can give you peace of mind. As the bearing begins to fail there will be small chips of steel begin to flake off of either the bearing races or balls. While these can attach to the drain plug magnet and be seen that way on a final drive service, the failure can take place before the next service is due. The Final Drive Minder replaces the fill plug on the final drive housing. A threaded base is left in the housing, and a removable indicator threads into that base. No tools required to check the indicator! Simply unthread the indicator at a fuel stop or when doing pre-trip checks to inspect for metal shavings.
