The actual aluminium clutch plates were broken, not all of them, broken into chunks, some were broken in half.... the gear box was full of chewed up clutch, some larger chunks got caught up around the selector forks...
I will post some photos soon, its amazing that the clutch still worked?! I drained the oil about 4 times in quick succession and the aluminium flakes just kept coming, and my gears were getting harder and harder to change.

whats the concensus on steel vs aluminium? how often should aluminium clutch plates be replaced/checked? its strange that even though my clutch plates were shattered the clutch still worked??
there were handfulls of finely ground up clutch plate in the gearbox so all the bearings are being replaced while she's split apart.
