Replacement Clutch Question

I've gone through the stock clutch on my 02 426. I'm looking for advice on a replacement clutch kit. Should I stay with the OEM or are aftermarket clutch kits better/worse? There are several kits out there to choose from and they vary quite a bit in price. I've done all the free mods and the exhaust cam is retarded to the YZF timing. Would a race clutch work better??? I'm not really worried about the price, I just want to make an educated purchase. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've used both OEM and DP. For the price and longevity I would use the OEM again...........

Thanks, Don.

OEM frictions hold up better, you can check your steels, they could still be good, and same with the springs. So yamaha you should just be able to order the friction pads.

I like the Ferodo clutch plates. They seem to hold up real well with my auto-clutch.

I like Barnett clutch kits, they come with friction and steel plates and springs and they have been around a long time.
