What symptoms appear if clutch plates aren't flat?
If your friction plates are worn out or damaged you might want to upgrade with a set of Barnett or the Surflex plates sold by Hitchcock's. I use the Surflex plates with no slippage whatsoever. I also have the upgraded clutch basket which has upgraded friction rings that are trued once they are installed.
Help me out with the lingo - I'm looking into buying new parts. Nfield gear sells Barnett "friction" plates while Hitchcocks sells Surflex "Clutch" plates. Snidal lists them as "friction plates" and "intermediate" plates. If i'm replacing the plates, what am I looking for?Thanks.
Technically the thick outer steel plate with the triangular hole pattern that the springs push against is your pressure plate. The steel plates that make up the clutch pack are specified as flat or dished.
I expected a reaction like that from you Scotty J. Boggy states he's having problems understanding nomenclature or lingo for the different parts. After reading your post I put in my two cents so he doesn't get even more confused. And just to clear the air, I have never stated I know everything. I really only comment on things I do know. Unlike yourself who comments on anything and everything for the sake of being what you have described me...... a know-it-all. If you look at how many posts I have made over the many years I have been a member of this forum to the number of posts you have made in your short time as a member it is quite apparent who is who.

Seriously, who talks like that about bikes?
Seriously, who quotes Alibaba? Get yourself a parts book. Book + Read= Education
