I know these bikes are fairly pricey to repair and maintain but close to $1,000 for a new clutch basket? That seems excessive in my eyes. I'm with Mack, I'd want to look at the existing basket before entertaining the idea of replacing. I'd also find out the correct part number and do a quick Internet search. Would have no
problem taking my dealer an OEM part that I had procured elsewhere at substantial savings. Hell, even for a little money saved I'd do it!
By way of comparison, I just bought a 2010 Ducati 1198S. This thing defines the word super
in Superbike. Anything...and I mean anything
for a Ducati is a fortune. Been considering installing a slipper clutch on it. The very best slipper I can find costs around $1,400 for the entire
assembly: clutch basket, hub, pressure plate, bearings, a full set of sintered clutch plates, spring caps, etc....
I'd certainly investigate this more before shelling out another $973. Best of luck and let us know the outcome.
