Talk me out of a slipper clutch....

well when I got the track bike (916) back from winter prep they mentioned the clutch would probably only last me part of the season. It's just wearing out. Anyway I'd looovvee to have a slipper in there as well as a non-stock slave to ease lever effort. Just not sure I want to spend that cash on my track bike. I may consolidate bikes at the end of the year and just put my 996 street bike on the track with track bodiwork and all. I guess if I do that I can always have a slipper taken out of the 916 and put in the 996. I'd like the Surflex one but it's like $1200.

Yo Motowheels guy got any deals on used Surflex ones or something? :)

Sorry... Won't try to talk you out of a slipper. I just put mine on and although I've only been able to take a couple of puts to the pub so far (Idaho winters suck), it feels GREAT...Throttle off feels like a low compression 4 cylinder and even dropping a couple of gears and dumping the clutch won't make the rear end chatter. Can't wait to wring it out in the twisties!

The install is super easy and it reduced the clutch lever pressure so much that now it has the same pull as a Japanese 600.

The "bargain" is the Motowheels one with Surflex plates for $929.

Well that's just dandy...I paid $1179 for mine 30 days ago! Hey Moto...How about a little in store credit to make me feel better????
