Slipper in a "commuting" bike? WTF? Whatever?r_usty said:I am sooooo glad I just bought myself the 06 S2R 1000 - This is amazing - they are putting in the wet clutch and not even putting in a slipper clutch - ouch!
Sounds like you have too much money - But hey if I could afford it I would have an S2R 1k as a commuter and a desmosedici for the track and say a ST3 for touring....Juzzie said:Slipper in a "commuting" bike? WTF? Whatever?
Hmm. I'll have to swing by Munroe Motors today and see if the US models follow suit. Would be a sad thing to see.DUCMONROB said:Thanks Rusty, I was starting to think I didn`t look at the bike properly hence starting to doubt I was right.
A couple of things:gRsChA said:What is the advantage/appeal of a dry clutch other than the traditional sound?
I rode the Monster to/from Oregon this summer (1400 mile round trip) and someone commented on it at every other petrol station I pulled into.mostro900 said:I called a guy that was selling his 01 1000. First thing he told me was, "mate, it has a dry clutch and it's NOISY!" ....he said a few people had gone to have a look at it and they all said...holy crap, what's that ? what's wrong with your clutch ?

I said to him, not to worry, it was one of my buying criteria !
