If it is the EXP 3.0 (clutch looks almost stock), it's a simple matter of removing the EXP ring and replacing the missing plates.

 

If it is a Z-Start Pro (steel pressure plate with 12 small screws and 24-27 steel balls), you need an OEM clutch boss (hub), a full set of OEM steel plates, an OEM or aftermarket pressure plate, a set of springs, and a set of spring bolts.

 

If it is the Core EXP, it's a complete clutch, and you'll need a complete OEM clutch to replace it with.  On the other hand, you should be able to sell the complete Core EXP for $5-600, or the Z-Start for $250-350.

What do you mean whole OEM clutch kit? Are saying pressure plate, basket, clutch components etc etc? Do you look at a full Hinson unit? Far superior in all aspects...

Even though the cost is more, the Hinson is a better unit...

Some of the Hinson stuff is frankly not worth using unless you're dealing with a Grand National half miler or something.  The boss in particular is $280 vs. $90 for the OEM boss.  Yes, it's more durable, but still...

 

OTOH, the Hinson basket will outlast two stock ones fairly easily, and because it reuses the primary driven gear assembly, it costs less.  Hinson springs are usually just unnecessary.  Hinson plates are among the few that are at least equal to OEM.
