9 plate vs 10 plate clutch?? GSXR 750

I pulled the clutch out of my 2004 GSXR 750. I pulled a replacement out of my recently purchased 2000 mile 750 parts motor. All swapped in perfectly with one exception. The 2004 in my bike had 9 plates. The new one had 10 plates. Same overall dimensions. I installed the 10 plate clutch's throw out bearing, washer, and plunger with the plates just to be safe. All went together smoothly. Only thing I noticed was after the reinstall my clutch had lots of play in the cable. I readjusted (a lot) and took up the slack and all works great now, but lever is slightly stiffer. Anyone know offhand what's up? Did different year 750's have diff clutches?

I may have answered my own question. The 600 cc gsxr has a 9 plate clutch, the 750 a 10 plate. Maybe this is why my 750's clutch failed pre-maturely. It was meant for a 600. Hence, easier lever pull, less frictional area, less holding power. So now it seems I have the correct clutch in the bike. Woo hoo!!!
