My experience with filing the grooves down on the clutch basket has always been that it is a short term fix. With a slightly greater gap the clutch plates seem to gather more momentum, and do more damage, when their "fingers" / tabs that stick out hit the basket. I joke that filing the clutch basket will work long enough for you to order a new one.
Hate the stunt, not the stuntah!

Hi guys. A few weeks back I and a few mates went out for a blast and after a hundred miles or so I hit a false neutral whilst giving it large. All seemed ok and within a few miles we stopped for a cuppa. On starting up the mighty Fazer I noticed that going into 1st there was a massive clunk and the bike started to creep forward. I managed to ride it home safely enough making sure I slowed a few metres back from any junctions. Today I managed to find the time to inspect the clutch plates and found the little button/ end plug sitting amongst the plates. A wipe with a cloth and some Red Loctite and Bob's your Uncle all working as it should. Thank you forum members for all your inputs over the last 12 years or so. This is a thread that just keeps on giving.

All the best Mickey

False neutral. Exactly what caused mine.
