my r1 is slow!!

hey guys hope all is well, right then where do i start, i bought the 1998 r1 about 3 months ago looking to restore it, when i got it was jumping between 8 rpm and 9 rpm so i changed the clutch plates recently and it has stopped doing it, but it still feels slow, my mates gsxr 600 is neck and neck always, it seems as though its going slow compared to the noise and rpms, when i hit around 9 rpm it sounds like the bike is accelerating hard but it seems to hold back, when i took the clutch apart there was pitting on the fingers of the outer and inner basket, so was wondering if this could be the problem?? also recently changed from a 43 t back sprocket to a 46 and it has made no difference to accel whatsoever, again making me think clutch, could any one help or point me in the right direction??
