2000 zx 12 clutch advice

Stock engine-stock wheel base- currently 18,989 miles. Purchased used a year ago. Just replaced clutches Wednesday; the problem is somethings not right. I was told by previous owner that he thought Bernetts were in it( they were great aside from the hot spots time to time). My current mechanic says he went complete OEM. The issue is when i launch heavy I hear a slamming sound or it has actually cut off a time or two. Loving the bike only want to go in one more time! He is saying he wants to order 1.6 something to get it right. Also chain suggestions. Thanks in advance.
I do ride hard almost daily-
I do pull her up at least 2x weekly
I dont do the dragstrip

Clutch stack height is more critical on a 12 than it is on any other bike. Make sure you're within spec.

I didnt mean to imply that with regular riding there was any issue

I had 55,000 miles on my 2001 when i sold it & never had problem 1 with it

but i took care not to launch hard or do clutch ups on it

OK- Thanks; I will be careful to ease into my launches- When the last set of were wearing down it became fun to spin off the start line. With the current new tire and clutch not engaging correctly its impossible at this point. Gonna consider a clutch kit that I can just install and not think about or worry about for a few years. The old Barnetts were wonderful until they wore out.

If you are drag racing then you need to consider a billet clutch basket. I have personally had the displeasure of having my stock basket explode about 100 feet down track.... You don't want to go down that path if you can avoid it.
