I was just wondering what people have been using to replace the stock basket? I know the Hinson is popular, but was wondering about the Moose, Barnett, and Wiseco baskets. Also, how much longer life can one expect from any of these compared to oem replacements? The next obvious question is regarding the friction plates and springs. Are oem the best out there, or are there better, or equal replacements available?

Thanks for any input.

I just replaced my basket this summer on my 02 model. Since it lasted nearly 5 years I bought another OEM basket. I didn't have much luck with my stock plates. Ferodo clutches last a long time and so do the Tusk from Rocky Mountain (they are made by EBC).

I replaced the stock basket on my old kx250 with a Hinson. After 9 months of riding (not hard mind you), not even a blemish. I think I got it for about $300 but can't remember exactly (off ebay).

Not sure about the yami design but you may have to get someone to press fit the drive gear to the basket for you.....unless you have a press.

The Yamaha basket replacement works differently. There 5 or six rivets that hold the primary gear/torsional cushion assembly onto the basket, and these must have the heads drilled off and be punched out. The new basket is supplied with a set of Allen bolts that replace the rivets.

The best buy, IMO, is the GYT-R basket. It's a Hinson for less money, simple as that. Both the Hinson and GYT-R parts are akadized, which is an advanced form of hard anodizing, and will last a good deal longer than OEM parts. The other brands you mention use less expensive approaches to that, IIRC, but still are better than stock. For the money, though, the GYT-R stuff is very hard to beat.

Thanks for the replys. I will have a look ay the gytr, but I think the Hinson was around $210 here on TT. As for the plates and springs, I may try the tusks. I just want to make sure that I am not replacing them right away again.

I suggest the GYTR clutch plates and springs....they seem to offer the best feel and best performance....over all but Hinson which is similar

Barnett all the way. The stainless steel inserts all but eliminate notching, and if they do notch, you can replace the inserts instead of the whole basket.
