I just replaced the clutch plates on one of my 57 pans. A couple years ago I had replaced the plates on another one of my pans using the Barnett composite plates with bad results. Grabbing, jerking, hard shifts and stress on the driveline and couldn't seem to get it right. Took them out and and found some decent used ones that I cleaned up and they ran fine. The ones I just used on my other 57 were the same type Barnett composite wet or dry. Used 4 plates. My buddy gave me a hint to soak them in auto tranny fluid for about 15 mins before installing and wiping them off after soaking. Installed them and took the bike for a ride and they worked better than any clutch I've ever had. Maybe that was the trick or I just got lucky.
