This basket had been filed on before and the tangs were angled instead of inline with the clutch plates so it was going to wear out very quickly.
So, Jason files them square again.
While filing on a clutch basket really should not be done, the basket can be replaced relatively easily.
And, with a new bottom end you don't want the customer to have shifting issues so.. File away..

Little bit more progress tonight on the KX500. Ran into a couple of snags, but we're in no hurry. Still waiting on a few parts and I need to make a call or two tomorrow. This beast is gonna be new from the ground up.
