YZF R1 clutch the same from 09-14?


Hey guys. Another clutch question. Is the clutch the same from 09-14 ??

My 09 with 14xxx kms is very irratic and grabby and I can't launch it hard at all. And sometimes I can actually hear it grabbing so hard no matter how slow I try to engage it

My buddys 14 is smooth as silk.

Should I just replace the friction plates with new oem ones ( I'm not sure if there is factory plates in it now or not )

Or is it possible the pressure plate is warped some how and needs replacing? That is what it feels like but I don't have any expirences with troubled clutches

Any information or shared experience you may have on this topic please post to help me resolve this frustrating issue

    New oem clutch kit. Replace the first friction plate with the 07/08 friction plate and judder spring. P/n are 5VY-16331-00-00 and 5VY-16384-00-00… will be smooth as butter.


    You can do a conversion on it by swapping some parts as above


    The 2 above have it in a nutshell


    Awesome thanks guys. So this issue must have been fixed with the newer 14b ? Because my fiends 2014 is smooth. I was thinking there was something else wrong if they had the same set up. Because his do not have the conversion done


    So from 09-14 they all have the same clutch but some are fine and some need the mod?
