    Looking to buy a Clutch kit to suit the M109r Model. Was told the 2010 model upwards have more clutches and can be put into a earlier model clutch basket. I am aware they also use different springs as well. Was priced today $650 for the Clutches and Springs. Seems too dear but could be wrong. Asked him about it and they didnt have a clue. From a Suzuki Dealer too. I think u need to change all the Clutch Plates, Springs and wave washer. The 2010 models run 7 clutch plates compared to the earlier models which ran 5. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Wonderful
    Look up the american site www.m109riders.com

    A guy called futur r explains what needs to be done to put the newer clutch pack into the older basket. Mine is a 2008 and i just replaced most of it with the original 5 fibre plates ,the wave washer and spring washer plus the inner plate #10 i think and it's all fine . Was about $ 460 all up. I also did the push pin mod too. Reused the steel plates and springs and my bike has over 1oo k's on it.

    Use Suzuki genuine parts only is my recomendation

    Hope this helps.

    I did it on mine. I think I went with 2013 or 14 clutch setup. Was a much better feel. And not as clunky as the 07 setup. There's a whole thread on the US site where we talk about what's needed. I even posted up a complete parts list in the discussion

    There is some good info here:
    https://www.m109riders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=297921


    Dam it I would have been first only I had to post an introductory thread before it would let me post here

    Also FWIW I read on a forum I can't recall now, one guy claimed he got more positive shifts and better clutch performance by simply over filling the motor by about 400mls of oil.
    It was an USA forum and they talked about specified oil capacity being 3.8 quarts and to put in an even 4 quarts.
    I must put in a disclaimer here as I am not a mechanic and I don't know if this would in fact do more harm than good
    But I would welcome any discussion on the possible results that might come from slightly over filling with motor oil
    Shit another guy even said use mineral based oil and that will stop the false neutrals

    Its for a mate that has just brought a 07 model. He was saying it had jumped out of 2nd gear once.

    don't waste $ on the clutch if it's hopping out of gear.

    you need to find someone willing to pull your motor down and fix it, there are videos on the net showing you how to fix this problem. maybe someone on hete is interested in doing this...i know some would jump at the chance to do it
