Downshifting on track bike/metal flakes in oil

Hi -

It's been a while since my last post.

I've been doing a lot of track days for the last 3 years.

Lately, I see small metal shavings in the oil on my 07 GSXR 750.

Wondering if this is caused by excessive downshifting?
Bike has 28k miles and original clutch.

Should I invest in an aftermarket slipper clutch or just redo the clutch plates?
Any shared experience with this would be greatly appreciated.
