I know there's a few options out there. Anybody replaced theirs, have recommendations towards the brand to go with, or any helpful hints on the install? Thanks in advance!

the stock yamaha clutch is gonna be yor best bet if you go with an aftermarket clutch they usually do not hold up as good as stock. they are not making gytr clutch plates as of yet for the 700.

I was told that after market clutch material does not break down like the stock clutch.That material will run thru your tranny,bearings,whole motor.Not a good thing.So I would sick with the stock fiber plates,It's easyer on the motor.Hope that helps

Thanks for the input. I will try replacing the stocker with another stocker for now. All those second gear starts at the hill really killed mine. The raptor crowd was pleased with my runs, so I guess it was worth it!

ha ha ha - - YOU WILL KNOW... honestly you will be able to tell.... you will be letting out on the clutch to take off and like the bike wont start to move until you have the clutch almost all the way out... and then it will barely start to roll, but you will be able to give it gas and it just wont really go.... it will feel like it is kinda half in gear and half out of gear (power wise)...
hope that all makes since....

Getting my clutch replaced right now also. I was told by the shop to stay with a stock clutch. The aftermarket clutches are not as good as the stock one. It is really easy to tell when the clutch is gone. Start going up a hill and give her full throttle. You will hear the motor rev up but will have no power. :mad:

Stock Engines only need the stock clutch. If you have power like say Randy or someone...then you may think about it. Yamaha did their homework and the stock clutches hold up very well unless you've got a stroker or something. Also once you increase the pressure plate springs, it makes pulling the clutch in harder...causing fatigue.

My thoughts,

I read in a review that Yamaha def did their homework for the 700 clutch because of the original 660 problems. Now its SOLID.
