1989-1993 Kawasaki KDX 200 KDX200 Mitaka UK Billet Clutch Basket

So how does a billet basket such as Mitaka help? Well obviously if it is made from a harder material, this would be a "good thing". Well Mitaka baskets are made from 7075T6 alloy, the strongest and hardest commercially available material. The problem with all high strength aluminium alloys is that they deteriorate significantly at temperatures above 170 -200 degrees. This is why one rider will experience finger grooving after just one race, whilst another will get a full season out of a basket. As you will see from the specifications laid down for 7075 alloy, it is produced almost exclusively for aerospace applications and quality control for this particular material is so stringent that it is virtually impossible that a 10 ft bar could have, so to speak, a soft inch in the middle. If a basket grooves up, it is not a material or manufacturing fault. Mitaka baskets are manufactured in the UK.

You have to remove the stock gear by grinding the rivets on the backside of the basket. This basket includes screws to attach the stock gear to your new basket.
