Drag racers step inside

Ok, i have been having horrible luck with clutches.. i mean every track day i burn one up in a couple passes, or even on the street they are not lasting me shit. I upgraded to a cycle concepts clutch with stronger springs... still no luck... Only thing i can think of as this point is the oil i am running in the bike. I run mobil 1 full synthetic. I ran motul on my old zx10r and my zx9r with out a single problem ever with a clutch with alot more passes. This bike i have only ran mobil 1 and have had the clutch pulled at least 10 times.. what all do you guys think?

ive had nothin but good luck with dwayne dragpak both stretch and swb and i run shell rotella synthetic and its lasted me 2yrs but recently started slipin but i will be orderin another dragpak here shortly bc thats the only clutch beside oem thats lasted worth shit. you could change the oil man and see if that help but one thing i did notice with dwayne clutch is you gota keep the cable adjusted alot more often are it will burn up in no time.

Do you habe any videos of your passes? It would help understand what is going on.

Also.. what is getting worn out? Steels warping or fibers burning up? Have any pictures of the last one.
