Got around to pulling out the clutch plates on a new to me 2008 Hypermotard 1100.

10,500 miles on what I assume is stock basket & clutch. Was not slipping but would groan when hot unless you let clutch out really slow.
How does this basket look? Fibers look pretty thin & coated in dust as do steels.

Good for another 10k. The graunch could be dust or try the light smear of lithium grease on the plates. But personally I don’t like the thought of that.

What does the basket look like? The tangs on the outer basket are usually the first to wear in my experience.

One tip. The plates are stamped. Due to this, one side is sharp and the other is rounded. Install all the plates with the rounded sides facing inward. This will help reduce wear and sticking.

Looks like the side with the number is the sharp side where they stamped it so I will make sure those all face out.

your basket looks a lot better than the ones on my 37k mile hm1100 and 1098 streetfighter - the wear on the basket and frictions lets the hub rock to and fro making the clatter noise - new basket and frictions will quieten it down - for a while
my streetfighter (very new to me) was clattering and graunching and would release/take up about 5mm from lever fully out - much more gradual now - although i only replaced it friday, so haven't tested it as yet - not sure what the graunching was from
i put slipper clutches in both, just because

What's that dark gelatinous looking liquid in your rear brake fluid reservoir?

looks like blue dot 4 to me and in pretty good nick.

i alternate between clear and blue brake fluids on bleeding. Actually I prefer blue.

nit sure but I don’t thinkyou can get a blue or green brake fluid any more. I believe you can’t get ATE super blue in blue

Never seen that before, I stick to clear so I can tell when it's time to toss it.

ATF Super Blue didn't meet the standard and was stopped using the color blue.

None of that's avalable here because some laboratory experiment test rat drank a 55 gallon barrel of it in 2 hours causing erectile dysfunction.

Or Halliburton diden't have exclusive distribution rights in the US

So got the new plates in & used same number of fiber & steels as OEM. Found neutral easily but when I put it in gear with clutch in it is dragging & not fully disengaging. Does that go away once it gets some wear or do I need more/less plates? Bike does not stall when I put it in gear but on the chock & rear stand rear wheel moves with clutch in & in gear.

Friction material high spots in new clutch plates will case the slight drag you're experiencing. A few hundred shifts will smooth them out and significantly reduce the new plate drag. Reduced plate separation caused by air in the system often reveals itself when a new clutch pack is installed — so take this opportunity change the clutch fluid and bleed the system from its high point. Installing new plates into an old/notched clutch basket also can promote new plate drag.

Hydraulic-actuated clutch systems are self-adjusting so minor variations in stack height won't cause this problem.

Yeah I have new reservoirs & an Oberon clutch slave to install so probably better to do it all together.
