don't buy the EBC plates
do yourself a favour and fit genuine OE Kawa plates,
worth the extra money,
soak in oil overnight
lightly rub the steels with 600 grit paper unless they are black or blued
use a new gasket, it's alot less hassle
make sure everything is spotlessly clean as it goes back together.

Ok so i ordered the new clutch kit.. So it should be here soon hopefully. Are there any specific motorcycle related tools i need? I will order a new gasket when the time comes to replace it. Also, I'm going to buy royal purple motorcycle specific oil 10w-40 weight. This oil good?

I'm sure that oil will work. Make sure to have an impact wrench handy to remove the nut on the outside of clutch plate. If that's not available, slip a 2x4 through the rear rim across the swingarm (I'd advise against this if you can though)...make sure to "unfold" the lock washer prior to removing and soak the plates overnight like others already mentioned. You may be able to pick up a clutch spanning tool which helps hold the clutch while removing the nut, but once again...an impact wrench makes it SUPER EASY on ya.

You shouldnt need to remove that nut. You will need a set of picks like a dentist uses. It makes pulling the plates easier. They have them a Harbor Freight for cheap. You dont have to have them, but it helps. I run RP oil also. The repair man. tells you everything step by step. You should get one. Also, I replaced my springs while I was in there. They looked brand new, but what the .

Not necessarily. Like I said, in the repair manual for your bike it should list what the tolerable measurements are for the springs.

good catch....no need to remove that forbidden nut if just replacing the plates. once the outer clutch hub plate is out, the plates should just slide.

I started to take it off cause the manual shows it. I said to my self "Why would I need to do that?" I stopped there on the disassembly.
