You have the BEST clutch in the gen 1, the clutch mod is for other gens to put a 1st gen clutch in there bike. No clutch mod needed on the first gen besides maybe heavier springs

I was told by a well known drag racer of Kawasakis to replace every other spring with a GSXR1000 spring!.not all the springs........but every other spring!.and always buy factory plates and fibers....not to go aftermarket!.........hope this helps!

That use to be the case, until dwayne at concept cycles started selling his drag pak, it is a better clutch that OEM, drag racer or not.
