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? :)

That's the one I had on my 749, don't buy it, all it does is keep the rear tire from locking up ;) got it at motowheels, make sure you sign-up there is a small discount. I like slipper clutches so much I just got an STM for my Aprilia RSV to replace the lame factory vacuum assist slipper, it goes in Saturday :)
duc995 is right if you go with a Surflex slipper (not sure on other brands) I can attest you will not need a reduced effort slave. The Surflex is much lighter pull. There you go you're already saving money...
Here are some pic of my Surflex slipper apart.


The first picture is out the hub, notice no ramps like more typicla slipper. Pictures 3 is of the "endless screw"
