Buzzing @6500 RPM on the Z

So for a while now I have had this obnoxious buzzing coming from the bike between 6500 and 7500 RPM in any gear and neutral. I took the bike to the dealer today while I was at lunch and they looked at it and told me it need a new clutch perch assembly. This is covered under my warranty which expires tomorrow. So anyway they have to order the part. So my question is, should I have them put the OEM clutch perch on or should I upgrade to an aftermarket one?

Oh, and yes I verified that the clutch perch is the source of the buzzing. If I barely pull the clutch lever in, the buzzing goes away.

Update:

They replaced the clutch perch and lever with OEM parts. Still rattled around, so they installed a clutch perch and lever from an 07 ZZR600 and the buzz in gone now. So now my bike is part Z750, part Buell Firebolt, and part ZZR600.
