i have just started to get clutch slip when the bike hits the powerband. the engine is on 34500 miles. so im guessing new friction plates and springs.

are the EBC rebuild kits on Ebay good to use or should i go to for oem?  

not near a Yamaha deal which is annoying.

Always check EBC or any new plates for thickness from new , a freind put new plates in his RD400 and the clutch started slipping, he changed the oil to sae30 mineral , replaced springs with heavy duty ones , still slipped , he took new plates out again and measured them they where too thin , he put the old plates back no slip
