my clutch basket was exactly the same

the correct way of repairing this is to use a flat file and sandpaper and go against the grain of the "grooves"

you would never imagine I had nothing but a new clutch in my bike as its baby butt smooth

with sandpaper only you have the issue of possibly taking too much material off...or leaving a non flat surface

another trick is to grindd the metal plates (in a circular fasshion) on the clutch pack on a glass window with very coarse sandpaper and then aligning them in a pattern different to when they came off the bike

this will give you A LOT OF EXTRA MILES on an otherwise USED clutch system
