I'd go a step or 5 further. When the friction plates start to slip they glaze and never really hook up properly again. Junk'em and start fresh. New friction plates, de-glaze the steel plates as long as they are not warped or have hot spots. Also, what do the springs look like? Clutches are pretty simple as long as you make sure to check everything while apart. Also, are you using a wierd oil that the friction plates dont like? It's never fun doing it over. Good luck
I just bought a new set of friction plates for my WR400 the dealer only gave me 7 I need 8. I went riding yesterday the clutch worked fine for the first half of the ride then towards the end of the ride it started to slip again. I called the dealer back and told him what happened he asked me if I adjusted the clutch cable since I put the new frictions in, I said no. so he told me to drain the oil again and try adjusting the cable to see if that works. I told him that there is nothing there you can't find any gear.this is the second time this has happened & that is why I replaced the frictions in the first place he did not tell me then to drain the oil but now because I have new frictions in and it is slipping again he said to drain the oil. is he just making excuses or is this something I should try. or can you guys tell me what to do from here. Do I need to order new frictions again or can I salvage the new ones I just bought? Did it hurt to use my old #1 friction plate seems as how the dealer never ordered me a new one?

Basics. Good stuff.
Hey guys thatnks for the input. I changed the oil and adjusted the lever and boy did I get lucky. The new paltes I put in are still good. So if you ever run into something like this, I would change the oil and adjust the lever and then maybe you might get lucky like I did
