slipper clutch

Does a slipper clutch go both ways? As in slip on deceleration and acceleration? When I'm in 6th gear going way too slow, like 70, and I open up the throttle the rpms will shoot up and and then drop really fast. Is that normal is that the the clutch slipping?

I'd have it looked at. The only time I've had that happen is when the clutch was shot.

Clutch wear is not normally a warranty item - warranties normally don't cover wear items - clutch plates / brake pads / tires / lights; etc.

To answer your question the clutch (even a slipper clutch) should not slip when the clutch lever is released and you are accelerating. If it is slipping (which it sounds like yours is) it will only get worse - accelerate gently if you must ride it - best thing is to get it fixed.

If it is this new - I would tell them it was sent out of make-ready with the clutch adjusted wrong (none or not enough freeplay in the clutch - causing the slippage) and the clutch damage SHOULD be warranty in this case. Get it in there quick and don't put any more miles on it.

Send a message via AIM to zampano
additionally, I don't know for sure about the gearing ratio in bikes but in cars 6th is an overdrive, you shouldn't be hammering on it unless you're already going pretty fast, plus in cars your top speed / acceleration isn't usually in your top gear and I'm pretty sure this is true for bikes too .... don't know why it wouldn't be

What's weird is I've only noticed it in 6th I accelerate almost to redline in 1st and no problem but in 6th it'll drop a couple thousand rpm
