    I've wondered about a 'how to' process/video myself as I have pondered replacing the clutch on my '07 for a few years. Another question I have is that if the clutch is replaced is the 'pin mod' still something that needs to be done ?

    The question is still .... if I replace the clutch, do I need to do the 'pin mod' (meaning to grind 3 flat surfaces on the clutch push pin) ??

    In my previous post, I was trying to help OP.

    As to your question, I just did a quick search
    here, and instantly got to this thread:

    IMHO,
    the guru of this site "futurR" answered your
    question in it. It is up to you, if you believe his
    expertise. I do.

    The question would be, did you have clutch shudder before doing the clutch upgrade? If you did then yes. I have an 07 and replaced my clutch a while back (didn't upgrade it). I didn't have shudder issues but chose to grind down 2 sides versus 3.

    Just do the pin mod. As long as you don't take off too much material there is no down side to it. The benefit will be your new clutch plates should last longer as they are getting more oil.

    In my 2007 '9 I had clutch shudder soon after I purchased it with 6K miles and I had the push-pin grinded. The shudder disappeared, next this year I replaced the clutch with a 2019 MY's clutch kit.

    It's worth to mention that the press effort at the clutch lever is smaller now thanks to the different clutch springs, but the clutch slipped under heavy acceleration.
    So I adjusted the slave cylinder position of my hydro clutch, so that the extension rod of the slave cylinder could raise up a little more when the clutch lever is released. No more slippage.

    I do have shudder when the bike is cold ... only then. Other than that I do not have any clutch issues and look at replacing my old clutch with new plates a want versus a need.

    Nope, the only time i ever had clutch shudder is when I swapped out my clutch springs to MTC springs years ago. I went back to stock springs and havent had a prob since.
