my damn clutch is slipping again but it isnt complete disengagement its like im pulling it in a little. ive replaced all the plates like 2 months ago so i dont think thats it. maybe the springs? where can i get heavy duty ones just the springs not the plates just springs? also when i did replace the plates the guy who helped me said that the grooves in basket were just normal wear and tear and they wernt that bad so i figure its eather the basket or the springs. o yea also the grooves in the basket did not restrict the plates from mooving like the plates didnt get hung up on the grooves so i dont think thats it. also im guessing its the springs bec when i got the bike the clutch wasnt adjusted rite and that could reck the springs. also i tryed to get the clutch to enguage early like taking it off the wire and letting the springs push it all the way back then connecting to wire where the clutch stopps but it only went like 1/2 as far as i thought it would and now the clutch enguages pretty late. could worn out springs do this? also it is not as like springy to return when you pull it in as my friends bikes so im wondering if its the springs.
If there's burrs on the fingers of the clutch basket then I'd very lightly remove them and only as a temporary fix. Replace the basket. As for your springs you can add a thin washer (all of the same thickness) to each of the springs to preload them.
