How many miles are you all getting out of clutch plates? Mine isn't slipping yet. I was curious. Are there 4 or 5 fibers and I'm assuming the metal plates are steel as opposed to aluminum? I try to be gentle with the clutch as there isn't a need to abuse it like a mx bike clutch. I'm pulling tall gearing and I don't want to slip in 5th when I'm riding it at speeds I shouldn't be.

I can't help you with a clutch life estimate.
But by using heavy duty stiffer clucth springs, like the ones EBC makes, you will prolong clutch life.

Because of the low horsepower of the TW200.... The clutch should last a very long time unless it is seriously abused !!

The clutch in my first TW started slipping a little bit so I first installed shims on the clutch springs and when it started to slip again I installed heavy duty springs. Both fixes worked for a while but eventually it needed a new clutch. I went with the Barnett Kevlar clutch. Cost twice as much as the cork one and worth every penny. That TW now has a total of 32K miles on it. I think I installed the Barnett around 25K miles but that was after I used Shell Rotella oil.
