metal plates?

i helped a friend who was broke,no money. out with some cluthches for his gsxr 600. we totally jerry rigged it to get it going, i added some more worn clutches to get it going and what not. i knew this was gonna bite me in the . but he wanted to ride so bad. so he finally gets the new clutches and another fella helps him put them on. says i put the steels in upside down, i find this particularly funny as all cause ive asked so many people and they all laughed there off, the thing i find also funny is that there was no mention of the extra steels and friction discs , so has anybody ever heard you can put steel clutch disc wrong just wondering?????????

Mine have to go in a certain order. Or at least one of them has different notches than the others. Didn't pay attention to the order they came out and spent a ridiculous amount of time looking at the fiche to get them back in correctly. I won't ever make that mistake again ...

There is a flat side and a rounded side on the steels.Most people put the rounded side in first to smooth the engagement,but they work fine either way

There is a recommended way, but either way should be fine. It wont hurt anything.

What you did is what drag racers do all of the time. They add plates or friction to keep the stack height right.
