Probably won't matter much.
How many miles on it?
Did it just start slipping?
You can go with either set of plates and make 1/2 of the springs heavy-duty.
If it's worked well for a bunch of miles I'd just change plates and check the metal plates for warping/overheating and be done with it.

just started after Daytona..think all that "stop and go" traffic had an effect. I was pretty squidly down there...more so than I ever thought I would be. I think when there are that may bikes in such a small area it raises your testosterone???? Did a couple of burnouts(on my brand new M1's)(reved the piss out of her) Plus I have 9,000 miles. I need to do some reseach and find out how much plates and spring will run me. Hey Steve are you going to the bike show?

I've had good luck taking a dremel to my clutch drive plates. As long as they're not warped and the friction plates are not completely worn down this works very well. My VFR clutch had about 55,000 miles with a lot of dragracing on it. I replaced the friction plates and used a sandpaper disc on a dremel to clean up the surface of the drive plates. I cleaned the drive plates on my VF500 the same way and now it will wheelie again. I'll be doing this to my SV when I get the chance. This saves a lot of money.

The fiber plates for my old ZR1100 were 90.00 and about 30 minutes to change.
