You have bad information. The '01 426 has no particular reputation for "eating" clutches, or much of anything else.

If you replace the clutch, use either Yamaha OEM, GYT-R, or Hinson plates, and install new springs.

In 2000 there was a problem with chatter/grabbiness but nothing since then and that didnt eat the plates.
