I've heard you can replace it with the clutch out of the 01 426 and that it really helps. Try a search in the top right for that, you may be able to find some info there.

Have him use the complete OEM plate set from a 2001/2002 YZ426, including the "boss spring" (pn 5JG-16383-00-00) and the seat plate (pn 5JG-16384-00-00), along with a set of new clutch springs. He will find the clutch a good deal smoother and more to his liking. Replace the basket with a Hinson, if his is damaged.

If the clutch boss does not already have 3 3mm holes drilled along the base of each of the six webs (in the valley of 6 of the splines), these should be added to better oil the plates.
