aftermarket slipper clutch?

who here has an aftermarket slipper clutch? reason why i say aftermarket is because OEM i hear doesn't work like an aftermarket one does. what's the engine braking like compared to non-slipper clutch? i'm anxious to try mine out this coming weekend, but i guess some more feedback would be nice, so i know what to expect from it.

A slipper on your 600? How much engine braking does it have?

I only heard from forums its a definite plus for racing; busa web sites recommend it so the rear doesn't lock up. Like you mentioned, seems like engine braking is effected, but I imagine that it would just feel like a choke being on or e.braking hinderance, not lack thereof

I started track riding on a v-twin liter bike, going to a 600 is almost like having a slipper My old VTR would lock up the tire

I think aftermarket ones are adjustable soo you can set the amount of "slip" vs. a stock one that is not adjustable. Not sure if this is the case on all stock slippers though.

Our Yoyodyne on the SV is phenomenal. You still have engine braking, don't let that fool you- only is slowly brings you in to it.

I have logged dozens of laps on a GSXR 750 with an STM slipper clutch, and it makes me feel very confident. The mistake I made was getting on my GSXR (which doesn't have a slipper) and trying to downshift like I was still on the other bike! Can you say "dancing rear wheel coming in to the horseshoe"?

I love 'em, wish I could afford one, and will ride the out of that GSXR750 and our endurance bike since they have one!

If you've never ridden with one, if it's properly adjusted, it will take a few laps to get used to it. If you are wanting feedback on stock vs aftermarket- the only one I know about is the adjustability of the slipper. The aftermarket slippers are supposed to be more adjustable. They aren't much different feel-wise in my experience, other than some people adjust theirs to slip more or less.

On the rsvr factory people that knew how to adjusted the slipper, or maybe they fine tuned it... either way I was never one of those people. I never really noticed the slipper on that bike, maybe that was the point and it worked pretty good. More likely I was always too chicken $hit to ride that bike hard.

My STM is seemless. Tony, You'll love it! It is easier to "back in" It really feels natural after awhile. I can't relly say enough good things about it.

not comparison to OEM....just aftermarket slipper clutch feedback really.

i've never ridden a bike with a slipper clutch, so i have no clue on how it will feel.

i've had many problems with "blipping the throttle", still haven't got it down, and have had my rear tire doing the two step all the time.....which in turn slows my drive outta corners because im worried about grabbing too many gears so i stay 1 gear up. i'm hoping this slipper clutch will solve my issues, and i'm expecting to gain at least a few seconds from TWS (Texas World Speedway) this coming sunday.

reason i ask about engine braking is this...i'm comfortable coming down into turn 1 at 160mph or whatever it tops off at. i usually catch 1 or 2 bounces off the rev limiter in 6th gear and i let engine brake take affect for about 2 seconds before i grab the front brakes and change some gears.....i'm guessing now i might have to brake earlier or harder before entering turn 2.....i guess i gotta get comfortable with it quick on saturday afternoon practice.

anybody know how many sessions we get on saturday's $35 practice?

Braking? Turn 1? What are you talking about?

































The number of sessions depends on how the day is going, what the schedule looks like and such. Usually, you'll get a solid 30 minutes iirc.

You'll love the slipper clutch. It is something that made me a believer INSTANTLY!

Whenever I free up $800 enough to buy one, I am allllllll over it for my bike!

Tony it is going to feel a lot like riding a two stroke into the turns. Your corner speed should increase. Depending on how you have it adjusted, you will feel much less of the engine braking especially if you drop multiple gears and dump the clutch. Hardest part for me was getting used to the sound of it and the feeling of free wheeling down to the apex. Once you get used to it you'll wonder how you did without it. I need one for the '07..............

It is a weird feeling at first. You use alot more brake where you used to expect the motor to help slow you down but, I can slam down 2 gears and not even touch the clutch.
