Was thinking of changing the noisy clutch basket, and while i`m at it, would be a good time for new plates too.

Is there a known good alternative for OEM clutch plates?

Bike is first gen S1000RR

Unless you are racing, I would stick with OEM.

There is also a brand called TRW, very popular here in Europe, 122 euros a set.

Just found out, they make a set for the Bee`em too.

the trac king plates work fine. I have run them on the track before with no issues.

I had to pass the APE plates, shipping and customs will pump up the price very near the OEM plate prices.

Have to use only the stuff that can be shipped inside EU sadly :(

Another one of the used baskets is being repaired at the local machine shop, should be ready to install on tuesday.

Took the original off, it is properly and utterly fooked, amazing it has held together! Still it was not too noisy, have heard much worse clutch sounds before.

The rivets are loose, springs are loose and the ring gear has crazy amounts of side by side movement. Never have i seen something like this.

not sure what to do with mine now. Cant afford the downtime to send the basket off for repair. might just start gathering the parts needed, new basket, ring gear, locknut, springs, special tools.
