if you are talking about the fins that contact the plates then that becomes worn due to the inward and outward movement of the plates. Use a file and sand paper to smooth those surfaces out. Or just buy a new clutch basket.
also i would use JBWeld to glue in a magnet (Radio Shack #64-1895) onto the drain plug so it can hold metal bits (although not aluminum) which keeps the iron-based metal particles from damaging the gears and the bearings.

could be one of the clutch shaft bearings is disintegrating. You need to see if there is any vertical play in the clutch basket and try to see which of the two bearings is going bad.
Do the same up/down test on all the shafts to see what other bearings are bad. None of the shafts should have any play.
Without a magnet to trap the metal pieces the floating metal pieces cause a deterioration of all the bearings.
