To vash's point, a link would be helpful. However, if you are easy on a clutch (very little slipping), then they would last a while. I'm of the opinion that having a good set of clutch plates is worth a few extra dollars of additional expense. Have you pulled your clutch plates out and looked at them? Do you know that they need to be replaced?

Honestly, that's an IMPOSSIBLE question to answer unless somebody has actually used those clutch plates and can tell you exactly how long they'll last compared to stock or Big Brand Name clutch plates. Also, it's a totally YMMV kind of thing (like tire life) depending on how you ride and whether you or are easy, average or hard on your clutch.
