hey no offense taken norm... and i do agree with you that even the best riders can err when downshifting. that's why i said it's certainly not a wasted investment.Gee Strati, you know how I hate to say that you're full of sh*t, but...........ANYONE can screw up the rev matching when aggressivly downshifting. That's why all top level racers use slipper clutches, & most big twin manufacturers put slipper clutches on there street bikes as std equipment - eccept Ducati (of course). If you're a commuter, don't bother, if you're a sport rider, GET ONE. When we meet someday Strati, remind me to show you my right leg.
ha! nice try normI was hoping that one would get you going Strati!!
actually, i've got free reign to spend as i wish, so long as it's "ducatipipemod's" money. i'm saving my nickels and dimes for a 998 motor. when i get the scratch for that puppy, it'll get stuffed into the s4 with a slipper clutch installed!Give me your wife's fax # & I'll forward her some of my medical files - she'll let you spend that money tommorrow
hey thanks! can't wait to actually ride it again this spring! WOO HOO!!!! ([email protected] that groundhog!!!)(plus, your bike is waaay to nice to crash(again)).
The light weight clutch kit that includes the basket, hub and pressure plate is lighter then any slipper. The six spring clutches are lighter then the Evo clutches from STM and easier to service. Something nobody has mentioned is that slipper clutches are NOT bolt in and your done. Unless of course you don't care if it really works. They have to be adjusted, setup to work on your bike. This might mean changing springs changing plates to ones that are ground to a different thickness and measuring and testing.I would just like to know if a slipper clutch is lighter than a light weigt normal clutch package offered by motowheel (for example).
