Its most likely the fibers. The condition of the steel is a guess until you open the case and remove them. I order the steel because I don't want to get in there and then find out I need them. Chances are unless you really mistreat the clutch the steels are fine. I would just buy new ones if it was me. You can do the job without a tq wrench.

LOL. Springs are another think I just go ahead and buy. Also, buy the gasket. Its like 8 bucks. Its not like your gonna have to do it again anytime soon. I like it all to be new. And yes, a clutch change is oil change time.

If something is worn out on my clutch, I'll always replace the steels, fibers and springs. It's cheap insurance.

Get OEM clutches!!! They are known to be the best. You do an oil change because you are gonna open the clutch cover. There is oil behind it. Your gonna have the plastic off that side as well. You may also have clutch fiber material in the oil.

Not all will argue.

You can stack all of the steels together and you will know if they are warped.

I would check thickness of the steels myself; thats the spec given in the repair manuals. If the steels are too thin the clutches will slip under high load.

Also a good way to ensure you ordered the proper clutches/springs since engine years can differ considerably from frame years.
