new clutch plates

i installed new ebc friction clutch plates on a 05 cbr600rr, it slips at higher rpms just when it hits the power band, i filled it up with castrol 10w-40 motorcycle oil, semi synthetic. i think i need a new clutch cable or new springs?

Proper adjustment would be the first thing to look at. There are other adjustments besides the one at the lever.
If you don't have a service manual or knowledge of how to do it, I would suggested taking it to someone. It might cost a few bucks but, will save frustration and more money later.

Did you soak the plates in fresh oil for 15 minutes or so before you installed them?

i sure did, the cable was adjusted all the way out on the bar control, so i assumed i needed new friction plates, so i installed new ones, it seems like the cable is stretched to far to adjust properly

It won't be the cable unless it's adjusted too tightly.
If you can bring it by I'll test drive it and let you know my thoughts, no charge.
