Hello, I recently rebuilt an 06zx10R. When I tore the bike down I noticed the clutch pack was dry. Thought it odd at the time as I race dirt bikes and the clutches always come out wet. I did some reading on this clutch and most want to use the 04/05 slipper disc and get the stack height correct. Some even add GSXR intake valve spring X3.

After installing clutches in motor (WET) and riding a few times around the block I noticed the clutch was grabby. Took it apart and the clutches were dry again. At this point I am thinking my oil is low, I missed some oil port to lube them or other. Any advice appreciated.

While I was in the basket again, I welded the 3 rivets as I saw a similar post on doing this mod.

The total weight of rider and bike is 700lbs and will be used for drag racing 1/8 mile. If anyone has a good link to a lockup+ spacer plate or other means to have this clutch hold up, please advise. I don't have lots of cash for a slipper, so I need something <500 to set me straight. Whether it be specific clutches + springs or other.

Thanks in advance.

There is a mod to drilling pilot holes in the inner basket and grouving the clutch rod to allow more oil to flow to the basket. Google Zx12 clutch oil mod.

Agree with above its a good modification, cheap and simple which cures the issue <a href="http://Zx-10r.net/forum/images/ZX-10R_net_2015/smilies/tango_face_grin.png" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" >:)</a>
Have u done it to your bike?
Yes there's no reason not to it's all positive costs nothing and takes 20 minutes or so if the clutch is out already.

I agree 100%. However, why is the stock clutch dry? This seems to be common issue. Are they supposed to be wet clutches or designed to be basically a dry system? I see so many posts on removing clutches, oil them and re-install. This seems like insanity... How would this even help for more than 15 minutes?!?
