The grooves dont have to be really deep to create the problems that your having. Like I said in your other post, the plate cant fully float in the basket like they should that why your bike is lurching forward and you are having trouble putting the bike in nutrl. Your pulling the clutch in and your pressure plate is moving out like it should but your plates are sticking together and not sliding easily in the basket. drain the oil take off your clutch cover and look on how the clutch works when you pull on the lever then you will see what im talking about. It might be best if you pull your basket when filing the ears down so you dont get shaving in your engine. I have heard of people doing it in the bike but not my choice. Also look at your inner hub if that is grooved also then the combination of the basket and the hub is why all this is happening. Just use a flat file to file them down. good luck:thumbsup:
