Lot's of people swear by the extra plate mod, I don't. If you want a bulletproof clutch on your 650R this is what to do....

Ditch the stock basket, it's junk. Replace it with a Hinson unit.
Then get yourself a barnett dirt digger clutch kit, ditch the springs in it though and just use the plates.
Call up Xr's only and get they're HD Spring kit.
Pop it all together and never look back. The clutch will last a while. Just keep up on your oil changes.
