Time to replace clutch

My 05 still has the original clutch 400 hrs approx. it's getting notchy. I don't think I wanna go recluse $$. What's the preferred replacement . I guess the basket is where I think there might be some good upgrades available. I just replaced my first clutch cable. It felt amazing. But the clutch engagement is getting grabby . Not bad but noticeable now. Any opinions?

defiantly hinson

I certainly wouldn't want to replace an OEM part with another OEM part when you only got over 400 hours and 9 years of service...

C'mon Bill... :p

my 250r got a solid 24 hours out of its basket! some big difference in reliability

Rekluse is you want to go auto clutch, OEM otherwise

OEM

What about the basket that has the stainless fingers? I forgot who makes it. I'm a oem guy but I need to ask!

ktm? kidding!! yeah for the 450's go oem who wouldnt be happy with 400 hours

Both Hinson and Stealhy make steel clutch baskets

 Barnett makes an aluminum basket with stainless inserts on the fingers.

 

Keep in mind that any aftermarket basket will NOT come with the ring gear. You will need to remove the old one and reattach it to the new one. You may need to source the rubber bumpers if they need replacing as Honda doesn't sell them.

The OEM Honda basket comes with ring gear and new bumpers already installed.

 

Make sure you take this into account when comparing prices...

You can easily do this yourself... Providing you have the skills and a Shop Manual.

A rubber bumper kit runs $ 30 + shipping and the job would take a shop at least half an hour to do. The OEM ring gear is attached with large rivets. They must be carefully ground down and then punched through.

The bumpers wore out in mine before the fingers grooved.

That's because you have mastered throttle control...start using your clutch more. There are towns in Japan depending on you.
