Has anyone used aluminum clutch plates (http://www.hyperplates.com) instead of the steel ones? One guy who had some in his bike was talking to me about how great they were and how they were so much lighter than the stock steel plates, I'm just curious if they actually make a noticable difference and last as long as the stock ones or if its not worth it.. They're not a whole lot more expensive than the stock parts so I was thinking about trying them the next time my clutch goes (and that probably isn't too far away!)

I have been running hyperplates for a while.

They make a bit of a difference, the engine is a bit easier to rev. They also are noticeable when rolling off the throttle.

They take a while to break in, and they make it a bit more difficult to find neutral.

There is a thread on motorush from some years ago with initial impressions:

I used em in my fzr400/600 racebike a few years back with no problems. Seemed to rev a little quicker, but could be that fabulous placebo effect provided by new parts:)
I plan to try a set on the RC someday ,but my budget priorities are elsewhere as the stock ones are still working well(with 33,000 miles too)..

Ive heard but have no firsthand knowledge that you should not use the carbon fiber clutch dics with the hyperplates.
