A true slipper only works on decel.
Now because you have the Buell b/s vacuum assist deal, I'm unsure if it will come into play when popping the clutch, but I doubt it.

I have a slipper on my bike but it wheelies. Your bike maybe a different case.

Well I can't answer the clutch question, but I know the answer to a question you didn't ask but need to know the answer to...


Wheelies on the street were reclassified a few years ago from a misdemeanor charge of "Display of Acceleration" to "Reckless Endangerment", which carries a maximum penalty of FELONY. I'm not passing judgement, I just wanna let people know.
Ok I'll climb off my soapbox.

I couldn't believe it when I first heard it, I've been doing wheelies (poorly but enthusiastically) since my first bike in 1980. I asked a Brazoria County Sheriff one day and he said, "If I saw you I would arrest you, it is a jailable offense".
Sad, that so many fun things from my youth are illegal now. Fireworks, wheelies, teenage girls. Sigh, the list goes on and on.

Well, I guess it matters more to some than others. In my case I can't continue my career if I get charged with a felony.
For otheres maybe the consequences aren't so severe but I would hate to hear of somebody being charged with a felony, for something so minor, just because they didn't know.
