You are replacing the clutch on an 05, how many miles do you have on that thing?

I would look at a Ferodo clutch kits with springs, fibers and metals. They seem to be good quality.

The OEM plates are hard to beat for quality. Riders a lot more seasoned than I will attest to that...SC

no, not even close......
I got about 4000kms and still good.

It really depends on how you use that left hand. (Just don't use it like Twiles!) :thumbsup:

For forty bucks you can get a set of Tusk plates. You can change'em every 500 miles if you want. What does an OEM set cost for the WR450?
