Perhaps the pressure plate bolts had been loose for a while,

 

less spring pressure = slipping clutch

loose to move around =  springs rubbing on bolt bosses

What do you mean by slipping and sticking?

And what are the pictures supposed to be showing? If its the marks from the springs that is normal

As far as I have seen any way since I just looked at a bunch of different used ones for my 03 450 cas my basket fingers were very deeply notched

Normal to leave chunks in the oil? risking a rebuild,the pics are the groves worn in, some groves are sharp enough to cut ur finger lol that's the pressure plate, springs and boss

When I shift gears the clutch don't engage rite away, I like its hanging up on somthing

 

Worn clutch basket, and/or in your case,

 

compressed clutch springs hanging up on those sharp worn grooves on the bosses.

I also do know that every single clutch I have looked at on eBay has markings from springs same as yours. Sharp enough to cut fingers though I don't know. Post a pic of your clutch basket with a close up of the fingers so we can get a better idea

Also when grayracer 513 comes on hell prolly have you an answer right away

Thing is my bike would just slam into gear and wanna walk in gear with clutch disengaged never slip and I also never had filings like that. I would take a closer look at everything and check everything to spec

You can get any manual online for free

Why would this happen?

 

The pictures of your pressure plate, clutch boss, and springs are nothing to worry about.  The springs get bounced back and forth against those parts with sudden speed changes, like shifting and such.  It's normal, and mine looks worse.  The area of the clutch boss and basket that is a bigger concern is the point where the plates contact them. 

 

Metal in the oil is a normal thing with YZF's because the transmission uses the same oil, and transmissions shed metal.  The amount and size/shape of the debris is what's important, not its presence or absence.

 

If 4th and 5th are causing a jerking, skip-and-catch sensation that happens only under a load, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th gears on the main shaft and the front (#2) shift fork need to be replaced.

Yes the basket and boss are the main concern for me as well, I as far as putting it back together and checking to see what it does, I already know the disks move around and are wobbly while everything is together, gunna go ahead and replace the entire clutch, keep flushing the oil threw to get rest of the melatonin shavings out, if shavings or clutch don't feel better I will dig in further
