Re: How to: 06-14 R6 Slipper Clutch Modification

Awesome write up man... I have no intention of ever doing this but I enjoy reading all the how to write ups. Reinstalling that clutch cover is what keeps me from wanting to ever open it up in the first place, haha. I did it once and once I finally got it in I had to go get a case of beer to drown the anger and frustration.

How it "feels" is related exactly to how fast you are. The faster you are the more it benefits
Yea, but if you ask me, I don't have the time or the money to be busting that cover off after every other race weekend to replace the clutch plates, y springs, and cover gasket. If you do, more power to ya!

Thanks bro! And now that I have installed and removed the cover a few times, it definitely gets faster, but it's still a PITA.

I amused you have the time to "race" but dont have the time to run a proper race program...lol.
Do you keep a service log or is there not enough time for that either?

I keep a service log on the street bike, but no need to if you change the oil after every weekend on a race bike.

Nice write up, Jake! I'll have to do this once the bike is together. Want to ride it first to compare the before and after.

Re: How to: 06-14 R6 Slipper Clutch Modification

Great write up!

I'm told this mod helps to reduce the rear wheel from sliding around on hard corner entry (something I'm getting a lot of).

Is that right? Why does this mod make a difference?

Sort of. Not "in" the turn though. It softens up the slipper clutch action in both directions. Makes it not so abrupt as you downshift. Also, from what I understand after talking to Thermosman, it softens up the engagement as you get on the gas exiting. It reduces chases input and should make the bike feel more stable with less drastic weight transfer from front to rear.
Probably not the best description butt you get the idea.
