im pretty sure that my clutch is going out on my 01yz426 and i looked on a yamaha site that has all the factory parts and i noticed there are many things that go in the clutch and operate with the clutch, i was wondering what do i have to get to replace my clutch, is it the clutch plates, the boss clutch, friction plates, or gears or something, because i dont think im supposed to replace everything.

If by "going out" you mean sliping you it just the plates and springs. This comes as a sinlge item from any online parts store.

For the rest consult the manual that came with the bike.

replace plates with Yamaha oem, they last longer.

when i get my new plates and springs and install them, am i going to have to adjust my cable again, if so when i put the bike up on the stand and turn it on and the wheel moves with the clutch pulled in, how much should i adjust it. should i go to the point where the wheel doesnt move any more or is it always going to move. because i dont want to wear the clutch out again to fast and not know it. thanks

hey thanks for the help, im about to buy a kit, but have one last question, should i buy the normal EBC heavy duty plates and spring set, or shall i spend the extra 20-30 dollars and buy the "race heavy duty EP kevlar series", does it matter or is it totally worth it? thanks man

I replace my clutch with the EBC heavy duty plates and spring set and it held up for three years. No problems
