Yeah its not much of a difference, but its enough to cause the problems. I just didnt want to risk coil bind which would could crack my side case with the busa springs.
This is a discussion on ND4's Bulletproof clutch mod within the Grom Talk forums, part of the Honda Grom Forums category; Busa (part# 21413-24f10) 29.8mm long 2.28mm wire diameter Stock 27.72mm 2mm wire diameter Hmm, guy said he’s been running them for a while now. Though ...
Busa (part# 21413-24f10)
2.28mm wire diameter
2mm wire diameter
Hmm, guy said he’s been running them for a while now. Though after measuring, I could see their size being an issue. Glad they were cheap, $13 for all 6. I wanted to try them out of curiosity anyways. I’m already running 6x kitaco 60% springs on the stock clutch pack(with 24,4** miles on them) and it grips nice an tight!
Thanks for posting up the part number. I noticed it was for the 1999-2000 Busa. I think I only looked at 2001 and newer busa springs, and they're much longer.

Finally got to ride with my rsc lever. I can finally pull the clutch comfortably(though still on the stiff side) with just my index finder. Used to use my middle finger(mostly) and my index finger. Thats with the 6x 60% kitaco springs(on stock clutch pack with 24,533miles on it and a drow sports spring plate) and I really like the way it feels right now. Not gonna be swapping the springs too soon. Gonna throw in a SMR 6 plate clutch pack in at the same time. Should have crazy reliable kung fu grip for a long time.
I go guess long story short. The kitaco springs are nice. All six is very stiff on the stock lever, everyone that tried it on my bike side it was too stiff. With my short rsc lever it’s still stiff but not too much. Most people would probably just run 3 of them, unless of course they prefer a stiff snappy clutch.
I ordered this and my clutch plate only has holes drilled on 3 of the tabs instead of 6. It looks way different than the one pictured on their website.
You could do that too. Wouldnt be terribly hard to get the holes mostly centered, and really you could just go one size bigger so you have a lil wiggle room.... the bolts themselves will thread into the clutch pressure plate after you tap them so no worries on getting stuff perfectly centered.
Well I was a moron and tried to tap the holes with the clutch assembly still on the bike. Ended up breaking my tap off in one of the holes. Took the clutch apart and tried to drill it out with no luck so now I've gotta get a new pressure plate. If anyone else does this be sure to tap them off of the bike!
