hey guys, so i think this winter it will be time for a new clutch. Just curious as to what clutches you all recommend or if I should just stick with OEM parts. Do you guys just change plates and springs or do you do basket as well? My bike shifts kinda hard from 1st to 2nd, and I noticed if I am turning the shift seems smoother, will a new clutch help with this?

OEM plates and springs hold up fine to a lot of abuse. Really the only upgrade worth it would be a slipper clutch. If you have the money to spare it's a nice race oriented upgrade. Personally I'd upgrade suspension first, even if it's just valves and a spring for your weight before I would to a slipper. YMMV

sure, I dont doubt that they hold up, but fact is that my clutch is going, so it needs to be replaced, just wasnt sure if people typically stuck with OEM, or bought EBC or whatever. As well as if people change clutch baskets as well

I've always used OEM. They always last and OI dont have to worry about stack height when I install them.

Okay, do you just order plates and springs or do you replace basket too

Honda sells a clutch kit with everything you need.. I'm not so sure that will fix your shifting problem though.
do you know who sells them? i checked bike bandit and sportbiketrackgear and a few other sites

^ Hit up Honda East Toledo either here or call them. They usually will beat Ron Ayers prices. If you gave them the part number for it they can order it for you.
Found it on Ron Ayers, thank you. By chance do you know if I need gaskets or anything? I just remember from my dirtbike days needing to buy a bunch of gaskets for when I'd open it up

No, they use a liquid gasket to seal the cover on. You can use Hondabond or something similar. There is a How-To on here of how to do a slipper clutch. It'll give you an idea of what's all involved as far as install.
