Your clutch drags when disengaged?
The clutch is hydraulic so it automatically compensates for plate wear.
The bike shouldn't creep forward if fully disengaged.
It may lurch slightly when the dogs engage in the gearbox, but not creep.
Is your clutch line bleed of any air that could cause spongy feeling?
Or have you noticed any leakage of clutch fluid at the master or slave cylinders (fluid level continues to drop)
If your clutch slips, then the friction plates are worn.
For a stock bike, just go with the OEM plates.
For an '03 and above, the friction plates will run about $88 plus shipping.
Qty 1, Disk A, PN 22201-MAT-000 (same I.D. as friction plates, has one tab with green on outside edge and dark speckles on friction material)
Qty 1, Disk B, PN 22202-MAT-000 (has larger I.D. to clear judder spring, and has tab with green on outside edge and dark speckles on friction material)
Qty 5, Disk Friction, PN 22201-MAT-E00 (has one tab with red on outside edge and friction material all same color)
Note the parts list and service manual are out of sync.
The part numbers above were taken from the parts list, but the service manual shows the innermost friction plate that clears the judder spring as Disk A.
Nonetheless, the large I.D. friction plate (Disk B) is the innermost friction plate that clears the judder spring.
Disk A is the outermost, and the rest are in between.
For '00-'01, they use two Disk A's for inner and outer disks as the SP1's don't use a judder spring.
