Now the stock clutch on a early XV750 or TR1 is fine as long as you don't get freaky with power addons. Luckily it is relatively easy to build a very nice clutch from a mix of Virago 1100 (or late Virago 750 - I'll just refer to the from here on as "Virago", even though I know that even the early XV models were called Virago in some countries) clutch hubs, TR1 clutch steel disks and pressure plate.
First we need a Virago clutch basket.

|And here you can see the height difference (Virago on the left)|
Unfortunately I don't have a picture, but it's quite simple really, just like on the TR1 basket, you want the posts to be the same height as the inner part of the clutch.
