Hello Steve. From your description of the clutch drag problem, I doubt that changing plates will cure it, and it may even make it worse, as the new plates will be thicker, and less likely to disengage cleanly. Your problem may be a simple one, just needing adjustment of the cable, or you may have a badly worn quick-thread mechanism, or even a loose clutch retaining nut. Try adjusting the cable first. The adjuster is about half way along the cable, usually under the tank. Slacken-off the locknut and unscrew the halves of the adjuster, so as to lengthen it, but make sure that you still have about an eighth of an inch of free play at the handlebar lever end.
If that doesn’t cure it, let us know !
