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? :)

I´m not gonna talk you out of one.. Slippers are great for "slow" revving machines like the 916 or 996..

But if i was to spend my money, I´d go for mag-wheels first. If you already have them, then a slipper is a logical step.

Moving the clutch from a 916 to a 996 isn´t a problem either.
You could actually go for a 748R slipper clutch.. It probably costs less, but then it isn´t really as good as surflex either. Just something to think about.
Some of my friends have both STM and JTR slippers and they seem to work okey.
