I heard EBC makes good cluth kits, but I used Barnett clutch kit (springs and plates) and it did the job pretty well, I think you can buy the whole clutch kit for like 150$ shipped.

YOU CANNOT BEAT THE (04-05 )FACTORY CLUTCHES ! Replace the 06-07 clutch with the 04-05 set up. If you need stiffer springs, try every other one first.

factory Kawasaki! I tried the Barnett a couple times and ended up going back to stock. It is much more durable for what you want.

I've heard stock fibers are very good, and I had success with them in my race car. I do have stronger than stock springs, though.

This caught my eye. Is there something superior about the gen 1 over the gen 2?

and like cow10r said use the 04/05 clutch setup works alot better.
Details, please.

Wondering why it is better, and what are the steps/parts needed to put the gen 1 clutch in a gen 2 engine.

Thank you.

In the 06-07 they did away with the "judder spring " and put one of those washer spring deals( i have no idea what they call it) and made up the difference with thicker steels. The only way i can describe it is if it were laying flat on a table, the o.d. would touch the table and the i.d. would be raised up a little. They use them in R1', zx9's, busa's, and several other bikes You can replace the complete stack with the 04-05 set up. The "judder spring gets rid of the chatter.
