Assembled the clutch basket today I have the flat edge of the plain metal discs facing the engine with the notch marked discs all facing outwards and together. The smaller friction disc is against the retaining clip. All looks good and now fitted to the bike, dished washer facing out, lock washer in position,

Just one question about the castellated lock nut - the old one was plain side out with the beveled side against the lock washer - facing the engine.

Is this the right way round before I fasten up and fit the springs etc?

Yes Ted, that is correct. Have you fitted a new lock washer? as if you use the old one the tabs tend to snap off when you bend them over to hold the castellated nut.
