50 hours is probably good - you may see no noticeable wear until well after 100 hours...

the clutch baskets issues i've seen have all been related to the rubber dampers.... and the oiling holes - there are quite a few variations of baskets - each one has it's intricacies... isn't 2011 the one with the 'redesigned' clutch basket/clutch cover? they only ran that basket for 1 year and switched back...

i run the yamaha kickstart - the gg kickstart went through a lot of refiinements (mostly changing the length) - the early ones had a super short kicker arm... i have changed the kickstart ratchet/gear once so far... you are correct - the spring looses tension, then the ratchet engages less and less, then it starts slipping/wearing the gears. it takes only a tiny bit of wear for it to start slipping.. there were several ratchet refinements (mostly changing hardness of gears..)
