Re: Where can I buy a slipper clutch?

So my lovely out of date 929 is going to be race only this next year. I HATE being so delicate with the clutch under hard braking (that many more things to think about), I would really like a slipper clutch. Does anyone make them for 929's? If so, please link me!!!!!

Re: Where can I buy a slipper clutch?

I have been looking for one too, I dont see anything worth buying.

Azione has some but nothing for the CBR, only gixxer and R1. If you find one with a decent price tag please post.

Actually no....no it's not. LOL

But I know there has to be some out there in the 800 dollar range, I've seen them for many other bikes. *sigh*

Re: Where can I buy a slipper clutch?

How much!?!?!? I can get one for my over-priced import for around $800~$1600 depending on the level of trickery.

Find others that are running one to figure out what is the best ramp angle to get (although you might not have too many options). My understaning is the wrong ramp angle makes for a really messy clutch that would probably be more of a distraction than a rear slide (well.. for some people anyway).

The way slipper clutches work is pretty cool. Simple and totally intuitive once you see the guts of one. Also find out what clutch packs/friction work best with the setup you get. I've hear horror stories from people who have put in packs that worked well in standard clutches but shredded in the slipper clutch.

YMMV.
