VN750 Clutch grab/grunt is no more

After pressing the service "mangler" at my local stealership to call Kawasaki for authorization to repair my clutch, they told him to do what he said, what Kawasaki wouldn't authorize him to do. Kawasaki told him to drill holes in the bottom of the splines of the clutch inner hub, per the info that I printed from the "FILES" of the VN750 Yahoo group forum.

While they had the clutch apart, I furnished for them to install, Barnett clutch springs($13.00) and Alto Red Line racing frictions($60.00 with shipping) that I got from Ronny Van Zant, owner of Sure Shift Technologies Newburg, Oregon.

The new clutch is much smoother, engages sooner than the stock clutch and is quieter than a church mouse. The $73.00 that I spent is worth it to me not to hear/feel that grabbing walrus. Warranty labor to Kawasaki $131.10.

Yes, Kawasaki authorized the dealer to dril the hub.
