Reckon $120-$150 in parts for your rear brakes (I include new rotors, dont have your old ones turned!)
Reckon $500 in parts for cat. back on your exhaust (resonator & muffler).
Reckon $240 for clutch parts (I include a new clutch lever, pilot bearing and pivot pin - REPLACE THESE WITH YOUR CLUTCH PARTS!)
None of the above includes labor!
If you are handy, the brakes and exhaust are pretty easy. The clutch is a project...
If you are on your original clutch I would say replace it.
