Is is normal with wear and a hard life.
If you wanted to buy a new clutch basket you can but it will eventually wear the same way. You could also possibly try installing new springs.

It would be possible to replace the springs but you'd have to work out how to get it apart and find a source for new springs to fit it. The clutch basket is not considered rebuildable so you can't buy parts from Honda.
Yes, replacing it will stop the rattling until the new one wears as well.

Know a good welder? You can remove the gear and shim the springs you have now and it will help. Getting gear off is easy, just grinding off heads of rivets. Getting it back on is the tricky part (that's where the good welder comes in handy)
