Does anyone know how many clutch and pressure plates are supposed to be installed. The manual and guide doesn't specify how many. I have an after market kit but it doesn't specify either. Any help is welcome!

go look at a parts fiche. Why did you buy an aftermarket kit? who made the kit?? You understand a wet clutch is not something you want to scrimp on... right??? And list the model & year next time you want "tech" help;

My bad, I ride a 2007. The clutch kit is an EBC clutch kit.

I have looked up multiple schematics and they all have different amounts. The actual Yamaha dealership fiche said 17, the partial fiche said 15... So many differences??

the # is variable because the steels vary in thickness. EBC kits should be sufficient.
Not all of the old clutch is bad so you can mix/match steels and or fibers if you have a caliper to measure them. Check for steel warpage on a glass table or surface. There is a stack height range... I tend to go towards the higher end #. I also don't use the tiny fibers/springs. The EBC springs aren't any stronger than stock...

Good luck getting the cover on...lol. Some have tilted the bike on the left side so you can engage the cover mechanism.

Update- I ended up using 17plates in total. 9 friction and 8 pressure plates. It pulled like a MF initially, but after some adjustments, it was riding great!
