08 cbr1000rr clutch

I've searched all over and can't find the answer I'm looking for. I bought a 2008 1000rr and the clutch is slipping. I've adjusted the cable up top and on the arm to no avail. I called Honda and gave them the vin, the recalls were done, which doesn't mean that much if you don't know who did it (my opinion)
1st question: why was there a recall? So, I pulled the clutches out and they deffinately look brand new. I pulled up the schematics and it looks like there is a spacer missing, (not a judder spring) but, I don't know if it's suppose to be missing due to the recall. I've got two spacers total: judder spring and the spacer that is next to it (the one with splines) 2nd question, which way does the judder spring face?? Cone out or in, there is actually some pinkish ink on one side. 3rd and final question, is there a certain way the friction discs are suppose to be installed? Sorry for such a long post, but it...there are too many variables. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
John.

Replace the clutch with oem friction plates. Make sure to pre soak them.

That didn't answer a single question from the op.

Just out of boredom I did a little surfing and found that the recall was really what Honda calls an update.
Here is a link to a thread on a forum, that talks about a clutch issue, it contains some info you might find useful.

http://www.fireblades.org/forums/hon...-slipping.html

Cliffs notes;
Guy buys 08 CBR1000 and clutch slips. Gets run around from honda, after much anguish, they dig into it and find when the "update" was done on the clutch, a washer was left out reducing the pressure on the plates.
A Honda tech chimed in and said that apparently the instructions were not very clear and quite a few customers had the same issue after the "update".
Could be something similar happened to yours.

Why not take it apart and compare what comes out to a parts explosion on bike bandit or motosport. If your missing a washer then order another one. And if I'm not mistaken I believe the recall was for something inside the engine going bad. For the life of me I can't remember

I did this, that's how I noticed that washer is missing. I wanted to know if it was purposely taken out.

I'm guessing, thats the same washer they talked about in the link. They said if it was missing it would reduce the pressure on the plates, which would cause slipping.
Best advice I have is take it to somebody that knows what it should look like.
