00 A1 Clutch Replacement Questions

Hey guys,

So my 00 12 has roughly 36k miles on it and is still on the original clutch. However, it's going to need replacing real soon. I plan on buying OEM plates and frictions, but I know there are different size plates and what not in the inner and outer edges of the clutch set. If anyone can give me the part #'s for exactly what I need, that'd be great. When looking at the exploded view of the clutch on an OEM parts website there's a bunch of different sizes and part #'s. Any advice would be appreciated as well.

Thanks!

The muzzy Steeles were thicker ( .2 I believe ) ...

Your dealer should be able to run down OE rstuff... I did a set of EBC fibers last year, just cleaned and scuffed up the steels as they were warped or scored ... works fine ...

I redid the clutch in my 2000 ZX12R a couple of months ago. I bought a Barnett Clutch kit through Ebay. I did however read a lot of bad stuff about the Barnett kits, then again all the threads I found through "googling" were several years old. Any way, took a gamble put the Barnett kit in my bike and I have not had any kind of problem with it....


Barnett Part #
Clutch Friction Plate- Kevlar Part# 301-35-10018 (x11)
Clutch Friction Plate- Kevlar Part# 301-35-10019 (x1)
Steel Clutch Drive Plate Part# 401-35-063002 (x11, Steels are 1,6mm thick)
Clutch Spring Kit Part# 501-59-06098 (x6 springs - 45lbs2")

As far as plates go, I wouldn't use anything but factory Kawasaki plates.

Just picked up a set of the Barnett Kevlar plates kinda by mistake/kinda in a rush and was wondering how long if at all I should soak the kevlar plates in oil? Also, planned to use the stock springs as thats all I have on hand. Any thoughts?

My thoughts, soak it and go easy on it at first. But more importantly make sure the clutch is getting enough oil. I would measure the springs and keep a record of it in case it starts slipping you'll have a reference.

Thanks for the advice guys. Got the clutch together and got the bike tagged. Clutch chatters a lot during take off and also can hear it chattering while idling (not sure if this is norm or no but donít think so) Anyway, bike runs great and am attributing chatter/rough engagement to worn springs (reused stock springs in a pinch along with old clutch housing gasket and original clutch cable). Will be pulling back apart to put in new springs sooner than later so we will see the condition of the newly installed clutch then. Any advice or tips are always welcome. Btw, ooooohhhhh weeee that 12 is quick! Lol
