I didn't get thrust washers as the girlfriend is who got the kit after I told her about the clutch. I guess I'll break her apart and see what's needed after I install the plates.
Don't break apart your girlfreind cause she didn't get you thrust washers

Before you go through the trouble, make sure that you have the clutch cable adjusted. The adjustment is very fine. Adjust it out so that there is a bit of slack in the cable when the lever is fully released. The cltuch should dragged then go for a test ride to see if it slips. I find that half a turn of the barrel adjsuter can be the difference between slipping and dragging.

On another slightly related note, if you are not getting much clutch drag or hard time finding neutral then you probably do not need new thrust washers.
