allright i went riding today and out of nowhere my clutch starts slipping so i go home and take off the cover and pull out the plates to have a look. first thing I notice is that the inner wall of the pressure plate looks like it has a lot of wear from the springs, I assume it is supposed to be smooth. Also the grooves on the clutch boss look like they have been worn along with the tubes on the boss that the springs go on. Is this normal to see wear like that.

I wouldn't think so, i just switched the steel plates on my 426 and every wall was smooth so definately something is wrong. Is the bike new?, have you opened it up before?, is there sufficient oil?
