Don't remove the heavy washer between the basket and boss (#11).

 

Tusk clutches are a pile, IMO.  You get a far better product by using genuine Yamaha.  That being said, be certain that the kit was specifically labeled to fit a YZ450 and not 14 other models.  Compare the number of plates you have in the new and old stack, and leave out the extra pair if there is one. 

 

You may also want to compare the thickness of the new plates with the factory specs:

Friction plates:  .107-.113" (2.72-2.88MM)  (except the last plate on the outside, which is .115-.121" (2.92-3.08MM)

Steel plates:  .043-.051" (1.1 - 1.3MM)

Oem clutch pack is the best value

Buy it on line 

Google search 'yamaha parts fiche' and pick a company.

I like Bike Bandit, Partsfish, and Yamahapart......

 

Bike Bandit is faster, but more expensive.

 

Yamahapart takes about 10 days typically.

TT Store online.  BTW, there's no complete kit for the YZ400 as there is with the later models, so you have to get the parts individually.  Even so, in terms of function and durability, genuine Yamaha is hard to beat at any price.
