Mine is gvooved up quite bad and stiff to use. Do you have to just get a new basket?

In most cases yes you'd have to replace it. Some people will file the grooves down but this is only temporary as the plate tabs will have more clearance to move around in causing the grooves to reform. You know it's real bad when the clutch won't engage smoothly.

I file mine and the clutch will work fine, it may rattle a bit more.
And have never done it more than once on a bike that I have owned.
I would save some money and file it carefully and keep the angles to the plates the same, after all it will get you going and save you some money.
If you do not like it, then buy a new one.

I got one of eBay. I love eBay. Except when some dickhead tries to charge you $350 for freight on a radiator.
