If you have read my previous post, I fried my clutch on my k4 600. I was looking for some feedback as to buy a suzuki factory clutch or go aftermarket. I do not race the bike, but do ride on the street pretty hard. Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks.

Seems that he used an oil that wasn't suitable for wet clutch use. I guess it slipped like hell in the oil and got glazed up or something.

Thats exactly what happened. I used Mobil 1 10W30 car oil. It was too thin and slippery. The clutch slipped too much causing damage. Live and learn.

I have used mobil 1 car oil supersyn for almost 8,000 miles on my last bike, and no problems, in fact about a year ago (or maybe a little longer ago) one of the magizines actually rated the supersyn oil as one of the top three oils to use in motorcycles. in fact all of the best oils were all for cagers.
