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.

Yeah, Ive adjusted her a few times when I noticed the bike doesn't easily move in gear with the bike off and lever pulled. (Moves fine it on.) But Never had a problem with dragging or finding neutral. Cant even tell if she's sliiping unless you try to wheelie or if you've been in rush hour traffic. Someone told me to get stronger springs but figured if Im in there I'll do the plates too.
