Slipper clutch?

Hello everyone. Just joined.
I ride an S1000rr. But, I race an R6. Don`t hate me.

I picked up an 04 R6 racebike, which is track ready, steering damper, 520 chain conversion, 200 rear, etc. Its great.

The only thing is, the previous owner put the stock clutch back in, because he sold the slipper.

Slipper vs non-slipper? I know a slipper is safer. I have a decent skill level, so I`m thinking I should be alright without the slipper.

I am trying to keep my costs in check as my banker/partner isn`t impressed with racing thing already...

Opinions?

Tell her that the money spent is more wasted when you get beat because your back tire is trying to do its best impression of Michael J. Fox writing his name at every corner entrance that requires braking and downshifting...

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.

Re: Slipper clutch?

If cost is a concern, just ride it out... I know a few people who race w/o a slipper and don't seem to mind it.

Just feather that bitch out when necessary.

Funny, that's what your mother tried to charge me for her rear. Tried.

Re: Slipper clutch?

I race an '05 with no slipper and it's manageable. If you're just getting into racing, and you're not knocking out lap times that'll put you on the podium, it'll be fine.

If anything, I think it's a good learning tool, as it really teaches you to be slow and smooth with your clutch release, and keep your body relaxed when the rear starts moving around a little on corner entrance.

When your pace is such that the thing is wagging it's tail back and forth on every corner entrance, you can suck it up and put a slipper clutch in, or make the jump to a 3rd gen bike. Or just back it into every corner like a boss.
