After wearing through several clutches, you should probably check the oil pickup. I'm helping a neighbor today change the engine in his CBR 900RR that seized up from being oil starved due to clutch material clogging it.

Make sure you don't have any dragging brakes that require excess clutch slippage to start out. Also, you don't have any clutch frying habits do you? Things like holding the bike on hills using the clutch, frequently starting out in 2nd gear, or slipping clutch all the way to 5000+ RPM before engaging?

When the clutches were new, did they lock up tight with no slippage at all?
