    You just put the equivalent of 15K miles on it... Why'd it smoke? is it properly adjusted or slipping due to torque? The clutch ONLY gets hot while it slips. So there has been some slipping going on. Maybe not during "normal" driving, but either up-hill or in connection with shifting... If this is a one-time occurrence and you know why, then I'd say it's fine, just had a bit extra wear.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Then you're fine. I've done that with mine. Not so much shifting, but having the revs a bit high going up a steep drive way into my garage.

    Sounds like you had high rev's going and no clutch release, I wouldn't make a habit of it.
