    I'm just curious how many of you run with a slipper clutch in your bike?

     on the clutch at all times. Does that count?

    Far from essential but they help.

    Coming soon! Can't wait! Any advice on making the transition, or setup?

    :) Once you receive your slipper clutch, review the installation instructions, they are not difficult.

    Once it is installed you will really appreciate being able to go into corners drop down several gears at time and release the clutch with zero issues or concerns regarding rear wheel lock up or the back wheel hopping around,

    I have had mine in for five year now, and it does make a very noticeable difference,

    Enjoy the ride, and best regards,

    Some models are adjustable but for the most part you won't be doing anything with it. Ride the way you always have. I still feather the clutch and engage each gear; the slipper will smooth out most mistakes downshifting. You're generally braking so hard that the rear wheel is barely in contact with the pavement. Any time you ask it for extra traction not having your engine speed and gearing matched up = lockup and wheel chatter with a conventional setup. The slipper mechanism affords some give under negative load. The big advantage is your rear wheel won't be hopping all over the place and unsettling the bike on corner entry. Set up properly, you'll be able to row down the gears and leave a giant darky going into corners without even trying.

    Yeah, the way my bike is geared now I get vicious wheel hop into 3. Not in 1 for some reason. Hoping the slipper will make life better.

    Try braking later and harder into t1 and you might like the turn better ;) I have a slipper in mine and I couldn't tell until I put an aftermarket one in. WOW, later brake- drop a couple gears- pucker cheeks and turn- phuffffff awesome!
