New Clutch Plates.

Wemoto have the parts here in the UK, £80.15 for the plates and £8.64 for the springs. They may not ship to Poland, but you can instruct DHL to collect and ship to Poland.

Just a thought, do not fill the engine with anything other than proper motorcycle engine oil and try not to allow the clutch to slip when riding. It will last until parts can be found if you are careful.

Regards. Andy
