Well, I doubt anyone on here has ever purchased a slipper clutch much less that particular brand so no one would really know the pros and cons of the product itself.
One CON would be the cost. I mean $700.00 bucks...come on now. Unless I was racing the bike, I wouldn't think of buying it. Besides that, I can think of better performance enhancing stuff to buy.

I'm no Patrick, but the pro is no motor brake locking up the rear wheel, con is you'll be going through more friction disc and pressure plates. Of pending on hard hard you ride it.

CON: if you need a slipper clutch on the street you are asking for trouble

PROS: enter a turn faster and wait to downshift at the last possible moment without the back wheel hopping on you.

eitherway, after going to the track you notice you cannot take the best line for a curve on the street becasue it would put you in too much danger. this eliminates the need for a slipper clutch purchase for a bike that doesnt come with one from factory.

my twin has a slipper clutch, but it also has a lot of engine braking compared to an I-4. :icon_bigg

STM makes a good quality product.
If it's a track day bike / racebike it is a good investment, not in my top 5, but still a good thing to have.
As everyone else has stated, if it's just a street bike it's a bit of overkill.
