Re: Slipper vs. non-slipper clutch?
NEVER use the rear brake to break the back end loose on corner entry! Are you crazy? If your going to back it in you ALWAYS have to do it on the clutch. Rear brake should only be used for trail braking and suspension settling. Worst advice ive ever heard ^^^^
Also did you read the post at all? He said he DOES NOT have a slipper and is wanting to know the difference and if it will make it easier.
The answer to that is no, slipper clutches aid in a smooth back in. Your standard clutch makes everything more jerky but will teach you better rev matching. Learning on a slipper can make you a little bit sloppy bc it'll treat you so nicely when you send shifts home. Going back to a standard clutched bike can be an eye opener. Backing it in will come naturally as you pick up speed and get better with the bike on a slipper. Its kinda like putting your knee down. To many people focus on getting the knee down than actually going fast and then you end up on your head.
It is an art to go big on a slide in corner entry. If its for the show then dropping it to first and learning how to release the clutch smoothly will earn you big slides. If its for going fast you wont have a big slide unless you cook the corner and are in a desperate bid to stop the bike. Believe me it'll just happen...
Edit: Be careful on those cold tires, they can come around on you in a heartbeat.
