1st let me start off by saying that I tried this post in the how too section. It generated no responses. I think cause most people don't look in that folder yet. So I will ask you guys in this forum.

I have noticed that when accelerating after being in heavy traffic, that the clutch slips pretty badly. Of course the dealer says he can't get it to slip. How complicated is it to do this w/ your standard array of home garage tools, and armed w/ the ability to follow directions, and having worked on most of my bikes at some level in the past. I have seen others that bought the Turbo Tec clutch and they seemed satisfied. Is the TT clutch just the disks? How complicated is the removal of the clutch from the bike? How hard is the disassembly then reassembly of the clutch? Is this a do it yourselfer project?

greenham I have not had to replace mine yet but the manual has a pretty good breakdown of removal and installation of the clutch. They do call for a couple of specialty tools to hold the clutch pack and flywheel but it seems others have done it without these tools but I'm sure having them makes it easier.

Greenham,

If you decide to go in there I'd recommend upgrading to an aftermarket clutch pack. I don't remember the name off the top of my head but I know the BIG HD aftermarket clutch maker has a kit for the V-Rod.

I think the name is Barnett. Chopper Steve sells it. Also MonsterMax installed an after market clutch and he loves it. We know how he beats his V-Rod. http://www.v-mod.com/shop/viewCategory.asp?CID=286,288
