Hi, takes a while to do but reasonably easy. Only downside is you need a few special tools to lock the clutch cage and remove the clutch. These tools are not cheap and most bike workshops won't lend them out readily. You can try though or see if anyone you know has the necessary tools. Good luck.
Check thishttp://www.babbittsonline.com/suzuki-motorcycle-parts#/Suzuki/VL1500T_(2009)/CLUTCH/022890010/56022890019 If you need to take apart just the clutch plates and replace them, you don't need any special tool.Just remove the right hand crankcase cover and the 5 bolts with the springs and pull out the pressure plate and replace the clutch plates.To remove the clutch basket (part #1 on illustrator), then you do need special tools such as air ratchet gun and the Suzuki special tool that holds the basket still, to remove the nut.
The whole basket isn't all that great to take off....but if you are just changing the clutch plates, you won't need to remove the basket. There will be an outside pressure plate holding them all in there, usually 5 bolts hold that down (those 5 bolts also have the clutch springs under them) Pull that off, and inside there will be the part that your clutch pushrod moves to release tension on the plates (sorry forgot the name of it right now) make sure that when that comes off, that you don't lose the ball bearing behind it. Goodluck.
In order to remove the clutch from your bike, you must have a special tool. You'll need H-D #34761 in order to remove the snap ring holding the clutch together.
Disconnect the battery, drain the primary, and remove the primary cover. Once you have the primary cover off, you can remove the nut from the compensator sprocket at the engine end of the primary chain.
Install the H-D 34761 or equivalent tool and compress the clutch spring. Remove the snap ring and then back off on the tool to release the pressure on the clutch spring. Once the pressure has been removed, remove the adjusting screw assembly, the outer clutch spring seats, the clutch spring, the inner clutch spring seat, and the pressure plate.
Then you can disassemble the rest of the clutch. Remove the remove the four friction plates and three drive plates. Then you can remove the spring plate and the remaining plates after that. Remove the snap ring that holds the clutch assembly onto the transmission clutch gear and remove the inner and outer clutch shells, the primary chain, and the engine sprocket as a group.
For this job, I would recommend that you purchase a service manual. It's has pictures that show you what you're dealing with and in this case, a picture is truly worth a thousand words.
You will need tools and a jack and a really good strong friend.
Remove the drive shaft. Unbolt the trans from the engine and put it aside. Unbolt the pressure plate and remove. The clutch plate will fall on you. Remove the fly wheel for resurfacing.
Take everything to the auto parts place that has a machine shop.
Get the flywheel resurfaced. Purchase a new/rebuilt clutch plate and rebuilt pressure plate. Get a new throw out bearing. Also get a clutch plate alignment tool while you are there.
When you get all the stuff together, reassemble it.
Put the fly wheel back in ... becareful of the starter. Add the clutch plate and the pressure plate. Use the alignment tool. Bolt it all back to proper torque spece. You will have to ask at the auto parts place for the torque specs. Oh yea, you will need a torque wrench for this.
Put the trans back in. You should probably change the universal joints while you are at it, front and rear.
Or - you could have a shop do this for about $500.00 to $1,000.00 and save on the band aids.
If the clutch assembly is to be reused, matchmark the pressure
plate and the flywheel so they can be assembled in the same position.
Install flywheel holding tool T84P-6375-A or equivalent, in a
transaxle mounting hole on the engine and engage the tooth of the
holding tool into the flywheel ring gear.
Fig. Fig. 1: Install a flywheel holding tool in a transaxle
mounting hole on the engine, and engage the tooth of the tool into the
flywheel ring gear
Loosen the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at
a time, in a crisscross pattern, until the spring tension is relieved,
to prevent pressure plate cover distortion.
Support the pressure plate and unfasten the retaining bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel.
If the flywheel shows any signs of overheating (blue discoloration)
or if it is badly grooved or scored, it should be refaced or replaced.
Inspect the flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, release
bearing, pilot bearing and the clutch fork for wear. Replace parts as
If removed, install a new pilot bearing using a suitable installation tool.
If removed, install the flywheel. Make sure the flywheel and
crankshaft flange mating surfaces are clean. Tighten the flywheel
retaining bolts to 71-76 ft. lbs. (96-103 Nm) on the 1.8L engine or
54-67 ft. lbs. (73-91 Nm) on the 1.9L engine.
Clean the pressure plate and flywheel surfaces thoroughly.
Position the clutch disc and pressure plate into the installed position
and support them with a dummy shaft or clutch aligning tool. If the
clutch assembly is being reused, align the matchmarks that were made
during the removal procedure.
Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts. Tighten
the bolts in the correct sequence to 13-20 ft. lbs. (18-26 Nm). Remove
the alignment tool.

installed position and support them with a clutch aligning tool

If the release bearing was removed, lubricate the release fork
where it contacts the bearing and install the bearing in the fork.
Install the transaxle assembly.
Lower the vehicle.
Bleed the hydraulic clutch system, if needed.
Connect the negative battery cable.
Road test the vehicle and check the clutch for proper operation.
