Slipper Clutch Question..
« on: January 31, 2005, 04:57:51 pm »
If you are racing SS, and your bike has a slipper clutch as original equipment, when you replace the clutch, does it have to be OE components?  Meaning, if my bike has a slipper, and I replace it, can I use an STM when replacing it, or do I have to use the OE stuff?

???

they should allow slippers on SS bikes, period.

Don't know the answer for sure, but my instinct is it needs to be the stock one.

I asked Kevin Elliot the very same question.  From his answer I understood that slipper clutches are legal whether they are OE or not.

Sweet  8)  Now I gotta get an STM in there  :D  I like the STM's for some reason.  Seem to work better.  I had a "Motowheel's" slipper from www.motowheels.com and it worked alright, but the STM worked better and was worth the extra $.   Yoyodyne also has their own slipper, and a friend has it on his 998, but I never rode the bike so I don't know how it acts.

I have a Yoyo in my 1000 ss. I've used both and I can't tell the diff. I like the start's better with the Yoyo. It's less $ too. But i have nothing good to say about Fred. >:(

I have yet to put a slipper in my 1k yet, but when I do it will likely be a Yoyodyne.

Sorry you had a bad experience, I've had nothing but top notch service from him and recommend him to all my friends.

I don't know if the Motowheels and Yoyodyne slippers are the same manufactuerer with a different logo, but, the Motowheels seemed to engage differently as opposed to the STM I had.  I think, but I"m not sure, that the Motowheels and Yoyo slippers are the same company, just different branding.  I had the same plates in the STM and the Motowheels.  The Motowheels slipper was definetly great for the money.  :)

My guess is yes. Seen a street ZX10R pop started last year.

I would say without question as the MotoGP bikes all have slipper clutches and all of them use some form of roller to start.

The 'busa had a slipper clutch, I thought it was used to protect the engine in case you downshifted too early and generated too many revs.

I agree with Eric about MotoGP.

The one thing that you can't bump start is those dang SV's, its rollers or a starter or the rear just locks up.   :-/

Twins can be more of a PITA to bump start.
