help me to choose the clutch

Hi Guys:

Its time to change the clutch and i have a problem to choose the clutch plates thickness.

The bike is 2010 YAMAHA R1 (US Specs) intended for street and street race, and i'm using a MOTUL V300 10W40 DOUBLE ESTER engine oil.

So wich is the suitible thickness for the clutch plates 1.6mm, 2.0mm or 2.3mm?

Please help.

Thanks guys

Just buy a Yamaha factory complete clutch kit, different thickness plates go in certain spots within the clutch pack. I saw one recently on ebay for $128,use only Yamaha factory parts for best clutch life.
