Should be same parts.Hello,
My name is Daniel I’m from Orlando and I had the same issues with the clutch. I own a ninja 400 with 950miles. It will show as if was in gear but the bike would not move. Took it to the shop 4 days ago and they called me today and told me that Kawasaki is covering it under warranty. My question is would they replace the clutch with the same one or the will use as better one
I had a N300 and my clutch never slipped and I rode that bike very aggressively. On my 400 I do the same, and the clutch will slip during fast shifts here and there. Kawasaki clearly needs to address this issue.
Well, this information is from China.
There are 10+ clutch burnt issues happened in China, I can tell this issue is a design problem of Ninja400, Kawasaki needs to fix this or call back the bike.
Hey was just wondering if you had any update on this, I would prefer not to deal with clutch issues if at all possibleHi ALL, don't forget both SPEARS & FactoryPro sell a clutch detent spring plus SPEARS sells a clutch cable return spring. I plan on buying both for my N4 plus maybe the Barnett springs. I do know that when I went with Barnett springs (1/2 OEM & 1/2 Barnett) on my RZ500, the pull was pretty tough. So just be aware of that
Edit: I just purchased the Barnett springs and I have new OEM plates sitting in my garage. I plan on buying both SPEARS springs. Before buttoning up completely I will try the pull with the OEM springs and then with the Barnett springs. I know the Barnett will be a stronger pull but just how much.
I've been wondering about this too. I adjusted mine early on as well and so far at 8,200km I haven't had any issues with some hard riding and a couple of track sessions.Concerning the N400 clutch, one thing I have noticed is that they are delivered with basically no free play in the clutch cable. Add to that the very light operation of the clutch lever and you can have a situation where merely resting your hand on the lever may cause the clutch to be engaged.
On mine I have no clutch issues to report but I have done just 1800km so far. I adjusted the freeplay pretty early on before the first service inspection, since wasn't used to the clutch engaging straight away / right at the top / beginning of the travel of the lever.
I read somewhere that the reason the 400’s clutch slips at high rpm is because Kawasaki used the same springs as the 300 and they don’t clamp hard enough to handle the increase in power.Does anyone know if Ninja 300 clutch springs will work in the 400?
Barnett's website shows the part number "501-58-03121" for both the 400, and 300.

More so curious if the spring rate is the same and will work alike to the 400 upgrade, without any problems.
Yes, they're the same price as the 400 springs, however I don't fancy spending $60 on shipping to Australia, and options for the 300 are far more abundant here.
Hopefully someone can help me out!
