Your slots are not that badly worn compared to most.

The inner drum, basket and pressure plate are Suzuki GS850 shortened by one plate. The sprocket is a standard plate sprocket fitted with a ball race onto a modified BSA centre. A modified rusty old BSA inner drum unites the Suzuki drum to BSA centre

I have a 6 spring clutch on my B31, it is light, frees off well, does not slip or drag and was not made by BSA
