I've got an RT1B 360 and need to replace the clutch plates
Any recommendations on where I might get these from? Or do any from other bikes fit?
Either UK or US
Cheers

Clutch plates or friction plates? If friction plates, No. 6 here:

If clutch plates, someone into the RT's will answer you. Whole packs are probably still available, too, from somewhere, I'll bet, but you can also clean and prep your old clutch plates, I think I have heard people say here. Again someone into the RT's will come on.

I just replaced my clutch with OEM friction plates all seems good.

I've used all sorts of fibers but never sure what, just stuff i had under the bench. Some were full fiber which would be originals but have broken those or found them broken in motors i've pulled apart. But others i've used were alloy with bonded fiber & would be YZ or something much later DT or MX maybe.
Come to think--one of mine i did use new aftermarket full fiber plates i was given, can't think of the brand but one of the big name names--Barnett rings a bell but maybe not. Anyway--worked perfect.
