Did you change the type of steel plates? I guess they make them without the steel balls on the ends now. If you did you might think about changing back to see if shifting improves.

Clutch adjustment , maybe ? The new stuff might like a little diff. handle bar/clutch adj. . Spring adj. on the pressure plate ?
