Hey Tammie, I've had good luck with factory clutches. I have a 99 WR and ride year round and have only replaced the fiber plates 2ce. My clutch just started slipping again last weekend so I have another set on the way.
Make sure to check the fingers on the clutch basket for notches worn into it by the tabs on the fiber plates. I started shattering fiber plates due to them hanging up in the notches in my basket. I filed the notches to smooth them out a bit and haven't had the problem in the past 2 years. I still had the original springs so I ordered a fresh set since they were probably getting weak.
Are you still running the original clutch? If it's lasted you this long I'd stick with the OEM. :awww: :thumbsup:
