Check the clutch basket and inner hub. If you see considerable grooving they will need to be replaced or the new clutch plates will wear quickly.

It's more than likely happening because you notched out the basket and inner hub.
Purchase a new set of clutch plates and soak them in oil over night.
Then go to the hardware store and purchase a file (fine, not course) and some 220 grit sand paper. Then take the basket, inner hub and plates out.

You'll seee the notches of where the plates were rubbing up against the basket and inner hub. Then file the notches off the basket and inner hub. You only have to file each spine for about 5-10 seconds max (depending on how bad it is). Once you have filed them all down a little bit, then use your 220 grit sand paper and then lightly sand over them again. You should just sand each notch until it is deburred (5-8 seconds or so). Then spray the basket and innet hub with brake cleaner...and you're ready to install it with the new plates.
