A couple of things spring to mind that you could check..

With the high milage of the engine it is likely that the slots in the clutch basket where the tangs of the friction plates move are worn, If this is the case then when you are actuating the clutch the plates won't move freely and smoothly in the slots causing poor clutch movement, Possible clutch slip and or judder.

Don't forget that when you replaced your friction plates you should have left them to soak in oil overnight (the same grade of oil that you intend to run the bike on) otherwise you can get problems with clutch operation.

Also when replacing the plates remember the last Friction plate to go in is offset to the rest..

Make sure that the oil you are running your bike on is either straight mineral oil or a semi synthetic...Don't use fully synthetic as you may experiance clutch slip..
