Your Bike comes with a Slipper Clutch...

Don't do any mods - leave it as is. It functions just fine.

As for the clutch, best suggestion is to take a look at r6messagenet. Sure they have something on it, I know that Tim ie Flynduck did one, might PM him and he can fill you in. I have not had mine done, heard it works wonders. But like I said to dam busy
cool. ill ask him then, thanks for the help tho.

Just curious, but why would you need it to slip more on decel? Is your tire not spinning but locking up?

That's what we're here for interesting information. Again, Im worried about the clutch slipping w a mod like this DURING acceleration but the light weight of the bike wouldnt effect the clutch as much say my steed...

^^^ personal experience is the best information.


Few times would anyone really come off a throttle immediately; I surely don't do it at high speeds....

I do all the time for race/track days..... if you try and use it for its intended purpose on the street you might find yourself slipping the tire due to the dirty a$$ street.

Stock slipper is tighter and will lock up the rear wheel. If you are only street riding, no need for modded. You will need all the engine braking power when you need to do a quick stop. People that does them are riding it on the track or racing.

The mod is really only needed for the track and in particular racing as already stated.
The standard OE slipper is good but not great.
We've run it for most of this season now on an 07 R6.
It's made little or no difference to lap times over standard but the big improvement has been in stability under braking when making a committed pass.
The OE would have the back coming round on Pat (the rider) quite a lot and several times he would overshoot and lose the place waiting for the back end to settle.

The "softer" the slipper was made by modding the grabbier it became so be warned.

the bike now only has the "one spring" mod as any more caused a grab, release, grab, release sensation.

If we could run an aftermarket slipper clutch like STM or Sigma that would by far be a preferred option but the series rules don't allow.
The Yamaha OE slipper is not a patch on the Kawasaki ZX6RR OE unit that Pat raced last year in his opinion.

Worth noting that this is only the opinion of one party using the mod and I'm sure riding styles and feel will bring a mixed bag of input.
