I had a girlfriend once exactly like her. Looks like her and everything. Five feet ten. She wasn't psycho, more like a femme fatale.
Miss her.

Of course I'll be ordering the Brock's Performance springs from his website.

As that Barnett kit comes with their springs included you probably wont need to buy Brock's springs. Your call.
I have the Barnett springs in my stock clutch. They are stiffer than the Kawi springs and work well.
No experience of the Barnett plates so I can't help you there. Others have used EBC plates.
Maybe they will chip in?

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Cazzy thanks for the input, if you have the Barnett springs and are stiffer than the stock Kawasaki ones then no need for Brock's. Hopefully that kit works. I'll try to make a video for future reference.

Something worth trying on any bike with a correctly adjusted but slipping clutch (or starter clutch) where mileage indicates the parts shouldn't really be worn out, and the owner doesn't want the hassle or don't feel confident enough to undertake the repair.  If using fully synthetic oil, try switching to a semi-synthetic and see what happens.  In most cases the problem will be resolved.

No end of motorcycles over the years have had slipping drive clutches and starter clutches on fully synthetic oil that work perfectly fine on motorcycle suitable semi-synthetic or straight mineral oil (there is actually no such thing as straight mineral oil, well not for at least 50 years when they started sticking in additives).

If you ever see someone trying to explain this phenomena as the owner must have used car friction modified synthetic oil (which is unsuitable for wet clutch motorcycles), this is completely untrue and just an internet myth.  Full synthetic oils are as a generalization 'slipperier', that's what you are paying for, it isn't just the oil companies marketing department making up sales spin.  That little bit of reduced friction (depending on brand etc) is enough to sometimes create a problem when the original clutch design is just marginal.

One thing about stronger springs...the stronger they are the more they'll resist slippage of the clutch on acceleration but they may negate the effectiveness of the 'slipper' function of the clutch. Just a thought.
