    Does the DD Clutch mod for the GEN 2 use the same procedures as the GEN 1? I can't find any "how to" or instructions for the GEN 2 DD Mod. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    I strongly recommend installing the taller spring retainer from Rick Rash as well. It maintains proper alignment of the springs.

    Also if you have an early Gen 2 (09,10) you need to upgrade the clutch bolts to the current part number.

    I bought the DD mod kit with the Rick Rash spring retainer from Tim Nash. Tim includes new bolts with his kit; my Gen 2 is a 2018 but I will still use the new bolts in the kit. Thanks

    Just did this to mine, started slipping after the Nash flash. I installed the new bolts also. I should have taken pics, and posted up a "how to" and I had it in my mind to do just that, and once I got it opened up it hit me, lol. Doesn't feel as heavy as the gen 1 dd mod did. Here's to hoping I don't snap another drive shaft doing a rolling burnout.

    I bought my DD mod kit Directly from Rick Rash for my 2014 Vmax in Spring of 2015 But, this was through the old Star Max site. I still have that kit and I may install I on my 2017.(that kit came with a new cover Gasket and the clutch Spring only)
    Is Rick a member on this site? (I am not finding him in my search) * Please Disregard that last sentence... I found him.
