which clucth plates

Hey Gusy

I need to change clutch plates.
But I really dont know what to choose.
I thought about Muzzy Clutch Kit for zx12r,
but from that what I read. You need to have
special clutch plates for Muzzy Hub so this
could be expoensive in future to
import plates from States.

My idea for it is:

-Kg Kevlar plates with Brocks springs
-Muzzy Clutch Kit
-Brocks springs with EBC plates.

Do You have any experience with this products.
I really need help in this subject because I have never change
clutch and this parts are quite expensive for me especially delivered from US.
So Im looking for best item compare to price.

My bike has full system, K&N filters, PCIIIr with Muzzy RACE map (only fuel).
Milled head.

Best Regards Tom

Stick with the Standard clutch plates. No need for any other even if you get a Muzzy Hub .

There's nothing wrong with a extra wheel.

Use stock frictions and steels. The standard setup with 1.6mm steels will be fine for you. 3 heavy and 3 stock springs will do the job, without being too much lever pull.

Ok I get it.
So OEM plates with heavy springs (3 stock and 3 heavy).
But what king of plates should I buy?
Should it be original Kawasaki plates or maybe that KG kevlar or
DP performance or else?

Stock fibers, from Kawi, and brocks, muzzy, etc... Any heavy duty spring should be fine from what i've read on here.

OEM all the way.....Never had any luck with the one time I tried something different....I even tried some Aluminum metal plates(almost said alum. steel plates), that were way to grabby,but freaking light.....There are some new fibers out that drag race people are running and having good luck with....APE has some and Carolina Cycle has some too....

Thanks for all info. Stock plates for sure, and heavy duty springs.
But is this Muzzy Hub is worth of money, or save cash for other cool staff :)?

if you cant do the oiling mods yourself, the hub and sleeve combo is a great mod
