Slipper Clutch

I am debating on picking up a slipper clutch for my 05 R6. But wasnt sure about the brands.

The ones I am mainly debating between is Hinson, STM, or Yoyodyne. Are there any real differences between the three?

Is one REALLY better than the other, or are they more just a preference and all about the same?

I just want to make sure I pick up a quality product and not get something I am going to regret. Especially if its going to cost somewhere around 1k.

Would love to hear personal experiences.

are you really going to notice the difference between the existing clutch and the slipper, are you going to use the slipper?

I still plan to blip the throttle, but it would be nice to have it there as a backup.

There have been quite a few times to where I downshifted and had my back end start bouncing all over the place.... I would rather that not happen

I put one on my R6 made by the same company that makes Yoyodynes. Night and day difference. I know where you can get a brand new STM right now for $550. pm me for some info.

my kawi came stock with a slipper clutch and i got really used to how forgiving it is. so when I switched over to riding my 06 honda on the track i was having alot of trouble with the backend jumping around and losing traction when downshifting. almost to a point where i didnt want to shift at all lol... well i worked on it alot and now i just blip the out of the throttle and dont have a problem with not having one... i voted blip it lol

No idea what one is better, but I have had no issues with the STM so far with the very few amount of hours I have put on it. The slave cylinder gave some issues on install though if you decide to add that as well.

I'm a cheap . Just blip the throttle I say. But I think if you are riding hard enough and really want one go for it.

I believe my new 07 has one, I havent had the rear step out since Ive had it. Nice to not worry about backing it in.

Sounds like the stm is the shiznit.
