    just wondering if its more advisable to fix the blown clutch on my 00 cbr600f4 with a full clutch kit or if replacing just friction plates and springs will do...??



    cheers

    full plate set is a clutch kit...........

    dont need to replace the basket unless there is something wrong with it, which i doubt.
    and if there was it would most likely have done more damage then just the clutch

    whenever people talk about doing the clutch, I tell them "just do the friction plates." and they say "nah, if I'm going to do it I might as well do the whole thing." but that's cars, slightly harder to get to the clutch lol.
    I reckon with motorcycles, just do the plates. that's all your really need to do AFAIK.

    A workshop manual will tell you how to check the spring plate.

    Of course that's a pain if you find one that needs replacing and it's 3 weeks wait.

    Unless it's really big ks, I'd probably just go the friction plates.

    Usually a set of friction plates and springs is all that's needed. If the clutch has been real hot though, the clutch plates may be warped too. I have personally decided to replace the lot previously for a better job and peace of mind. Look for scoring on the basket itself caused by the plates and replace it if necessary.
