09 TripleR worn clutch plate?

Hey everyone, hope all is well. I took my 09 street triple r into the dealer for the recall work...stador and shift lever...I purchased the bike new with 1 mile on it, and have never abused it, only has 4500 miles on it, changed the oil 3 times..bike does sit sometimes for a month, but never longer than that without a little ride here and there. Upon the warranty work the tech had to pry apart one of the clutch plates from the steel plate, it was scortched. The other plates looked fine, the oil of course was fine, the bike rode fine as well, no drag..no problems...they said they had never seen anything like that...and said it could have been from periods of sitting..but the bike has never had low oil, or abused..just seeing if anyone has any ideas to what could have happened..or why the bike still operated normally with a clutch plate siezed?
Thanks

Sticking plates is odd

Do you store the bike outside or cold/wet location?

My guess - that single scorched plate has a high spot or was warped from the factory. The other plates had ample capacity to take up the load and you never noticed any difference.

Thanks RallyCat for your info, I thought the same thing and told them it had to be faulty from the factory...they laughed...so guess I'll have to pay for the plates, good thing is the warranty work covers the reassemble since it was already apart

Sounds like one of the plates was hanging up and not floating in the basket. If they tore the clutch down anyway, probably smart to replace the set of plates with new even if they looked ok. They're fairly cheap and now the life of your clutch starts over.

There is no way a friction plate was seized to the steel plate...if that was the case the clutch wouldn't release and the bike would die when put into gear.

I agree and ordered new plates while it was torn apart, and Dave I agree, I watched the guy seperate the two, crazy!! That's why I was shocked I was able to ride the bike like normal...

When the clutch is released, all the steels rotate against all the friction plates. Its all or nothing. If the clutch releases, they are not stuck together.

Probably nothing more than oil sticking the plates together. If the bike had been OK to ride the plates were free the last time it was ridden. Plates would probably have freed on start up - just a bit more of a jerk than usual on first selectiong bottom gear.
