Was wondering if there is anyone who has done the slipper clutch mod on their r6 and also used one with an aftermarket slipper clutch. Basically would like to know how each compares to stock settings. One of my biggest problems on track is trying to brake, blip and downshift at the same time and it is such a problem that I try to stay in one gear for entire tracks. This in turn make me slow as heck, lol.

Any information you guys might have would be great.

what is this "slipper clutch mod" you speak of? I rode my brother's 2004 with a yoyodyne slipper and it was great... I don't have any comparison experience with the 3rd gen aftermarket slippers and the stock though.

I have been trying to do some research on it and apparently there are several ways you can do it. This link shows one way of doing it:

Also read that if you leave the first spring stock, then take 6mm off the second and 12mm off the third spring, the effects are very good.

lol, how do you ride if you cant brake and throttle blip at the same time?

I blip for every downshift i do, even when coming to a full stop. and that's on the street.
I usually just let the clutch out much slower. Every time I try to blip while braking the pressure I am applying changes. Add in that I have to do this in shorter periods of time on track and it is just not working.

Save yourself a ton of money and correct your technique first. Try separating all the actions if you're having trouble doing so much at once (i.e. downshift before you get to braking marker or visa versa). With a slipper clutch you don't really need to blip w/ your downshift - that being said, the stock slipper clutch isn't stellar and isn't the most forgiving if your actions aren't the smoothest, this is where the "mod" comes in. From my understanding, it just makes the action that much looser - allowing more room for "error" I guess.
I don't blip the throttle at the track, if your timing is right you shouldn't need to either.

lol, how do you ride if you cant brake and throttle blip at the same time?

And how does that make you feel? :laugh

^ haha. I am right there with ya. Things always seem to go wrong when I work on the bike. Simply trying to take rearsets off today and I find a bolt head is stripped so I can't change out my rearsets.

All this talk of blipping the throttle on the downshift is getting me confused... When I don't use the clutch lever (up shifting or downshifting) I abruptly CLOSE the throttle, throw it up/down a gear, then get right on it again. :wtf are you all doing?

Right... then abruptly close the throttle. That's what I do.

Ok I don't ride the track but in all my years of experience I have to say i like the current slipper clutch. Thought it may not be great it is still effective. I can get through all of my shifts without massive blipping, most of the time not even having to blip the throttle. Probably because I just ride in first everywhere :sing
