This is probably a stupid question, but what is the difference between a "slipper clutch" and a regular clutch? I've heard the term thrown around and just wanted to know. Thanks.
And who you calling less experienced? Just because someone chooses a 620 doesn't mean they're a newbie.I believe the 620's have a slipper clutch as standard equipment...the reasoning behind that [ I assume] is that many on the 620 will be less experienced riders and more prone to making shifting mistakes.
The Aprilia RSVR uses manifold vacuum to drive the "clutch slipper" according to my friend who owns one... High rpms with closed throttle = a semi-released clutch... Sounds plausible to me...Most of the aftermarket slipper clutches for Monsters use a system of ramps inside the clutch hub.
Evidently, some of the competition slipper clutches use a system more like a ratchet, but I haven't seen one in person.
Nah, they're different "slipper clutches"...Slipper clutches are well known at the drags.
