Pulled the clutch assembly on my new to me 2007 KX250. Hub and basket edges are badly grooved.

What's the best option for a replacement clutch basket?

OEM Kawasaki: 13095-0048 - $282.79
Hinson: 151-1013 - $259.99
Wiseco: WPP3048 - $169.95
Barnett: 321-45-01014 - $233.10

I have a Hinson in both my 125 and 250 and love it. High quality and can definitely tell a difference

I posted in your build thread, but definitely oem or Hinson. Can’t go wrong with either.

Isn't OEM die-cast aluminium that wears out quickly? The Hinson, Wiseco and Barnett baskets are forged among other treatments. Can't find a 'shootout' of the top basket makers to know which is best.

"Precision forged. Larger oiling holes in the clutch basket tangs increase lubrication, reduce heat build-up and reduce weight. Supplied with high-quality fasteners complete with pre-applied thread locker for a secure grip during assembly. Hardcoated anodized and Teflon-coated to offer superior wear resistance and a smooth clutch operation.

* Manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty"

Barnett baskets have the stainless steel fingers covers that will last years over anodized or alkidized aluminum. They virtually will not groove.

Hinsons are great, but I have also used a Mitaka basket with great success.

Was able to get one for about £95 here in the UK and it lasted 2 seasons with 0 issues. I wouldn't use their pistons but the Mitaka baskets are solid. Far better than Talon!

RussB, thanks for sharing your Mitaka basket experience. I was on their site a couple of months back, looking at baskets.
