              Don't think so... you'll have to abuse it REAL hard to wear it badly - wet clutches like ours are cooled by oil....
              “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                im not worried about wearing it, just using to harshly.
                like new tyres, u go easy on them for 100ks.
                new bikes u take it easy for the first 1000 ks.

                anyone who actually knows for sure?

                  It should be fine. Plus you have already replaced it once so a second time should be easier.

                      The clutch plate should be ok, when the bike is new, you need to run everything in so the clutch doesn't get a good workout.

                      A new clutch will bite harder than a used one, test it out on the way to the drags ... but for gods sake, choose your place. Plenty of blues boys out there at the moment.

                        dunno about bike clutches but car clutches definatelly have to be run in.

                        I took my new button clutch to the drags pretty much straight away and it melted stuck to the flywheel. Had to drive it home like a truck (no clutch) and 3/4 the way home after some 'jolting' it came free again, cant imagine it was too good for it though.

                        id err on the side of caution and wait a bit. Might be fine though.

                        (damm your prolly at the drags already, didnt realise the time)
