    Inspect....
    Cost of a gasket during oil change. Measure plates, (refer to service limit published data)visually inspect. Access is very easy.

    SOP for 1200 Bandit is to use the inner clutch basket and plates from a 600 GSXR. Bolts on. Will not ever slip again, I promise.

    Actually improves the feel quite a bit too.

    That's good news. Now you can just ride. I used Rotella in my new 06 Bandit 1200 and rode that thing to the northern tip of Newfoundland on the tail end of a hurricane. Wonderful bikes. In my case, installing Heli Bars made it a very comfortable bike.
