That clutch should work fine, but if it's the aluminum bell, you need to have the black clutch shoe.

Did you received the silver colored aluminum bell or the somewhat goldish hardcoating looking one?.
With the silver colored one you want to use the black shoe and with the hardcoated one you want the yellow shoe.
But normally the clutch sets are configured for optimal performance so it should work right out of the box.
