Ok, I have a 06 YZ250 and managed to burn up my clutch tonight. I neeeeeed some OEM plates for the weekend and need to know if the stock YZF450 (quad) plates will fit. I checked and the YZ plates are the same P/N as the YZ450F bike plates, but I'm not sure if the quad plates will fit. I have a local dealer that should have the quad plates in stock so if they'll work I'm back in business. Thanks ahead for any help!!!!

I don't know if they will fit or not, but none of the 3 engines you mention have a common part number among them for the clutch plates. The pressure plates are all the same, but that's the extent of it.

The quad plates will work in a 450. They are a little different, but most quad guys actually upgrade to the yz450f plates. I believe the only difference is in the quad one of the fibers isn't as big as the rest. They replace it with the yz ones for more friction/surface area.

I know the OEM P/N's are different, but if you look at the aftermarket, they have the same p/n's for the 250 and 450. The quad aftermarket kit is different but I figure there might be a different # of plates or something simple like that.

That's one of the reasons that many aftermarket clutches don't work as well as OEM, too. The plates will probably fit in the basket, and since the pressure plates are the same, the plain plates will undoubtedly fit the boss. But there is still the matter of thickness and compound. You can try it.

I tried putting a quad clutch in my 03. It wouldn't work for me because i couldn't adjust my clutch lever out far enough for the clutch to engage all the way, it slipped like crazy. The quad clutch has 7 friction and pressure plates. The bike clutch has 8.
