hi i would like to know if anyone can tell me what the a-d markings on the 2007 zx10r clutch basket means. i have used two different marked baskets before but not sure what the letters stand for. if you go to order a new oem basket you will also see this A-D options as well as a "no markings"

I think it has to do with machining tolerances. You're supposed to match the markings with the other components it mates with. I honestly don't know how critical it is to do this but better safe than sorry?

Clutch basket

I'm assuming you are dealing with an 04/05
The 04/05 06/07 use the same clutch basket respectively and the 04 thru 07 use the same oil pump drive gear.
It appears that they had some machining tolerance issues in 04/05 that they cured in 06/07 because 04/05 has the matching marking and multiple baskets. 06/07 has only one basket option, just buy the 06/07 and don't worry about it.
I just put the 04-07 basket and oil pump drive gear in my 09 because the 04-07 drives the oil pump faster and thus makes more oil pressure.
