i went in today and filed mine down (its cheaper than 200+new one)
now it works like brand new
i also sanded the filed edges down too smooth the filled edges down
look up videos on you tube to pull apart and put back together properly

We've still got a 98 125 that sits around if my boys want to go riding with me. It's been a good 10 years now, but I remember reading somewhere that taking the clutches push-rod and filing the squared end (that goes inward) to a more rounded shape will help with your issue... don't know why, but I did it and it helped.
Our 98 has a Hinson basket, a 'like new' OEM hub, good OEM frictions, modified push-rod, ATF, adjusted to a minimal amount of free-play at the lever/perch, and it still drags somewhat, just gotta live with it.
