Slipper Clutch and Blipping

I've not ridden a bike which has a slipper clutch. Does a slipper clutch stop the need to blip when downshifting at speed?

In theory it does because it limits the back torque from the motor. I had one on my 636 but had the back step out a couple times going into 1st without bliping to test it out. I'm sure there are others that know a lot more about it than me though.

A new money pit has opened. I call it my Daytona.

i think its more of a cover-your-ass addition to having the slipper, i dont think the intended use is to remove the need to blip on down shifts.

BLIP ON THE DOWNSHIFT!

No slipper is that good. It will still send a torque pulse through your rear tire which reduces your available traction at turn in.

I have one in my 675....It's good practice to do so, but you don't asolutely need to with a slipper clutch.

Stop.... Hammer Time!

No real need to blip with a slipper. I will if i'm on the street and not pushing at all. Smooths things out.

On the track i pretty much hit my downshifts and drop the clutch. I have all my shifting done before turn in and if the rear gets squirrely i'm not worried. (the front end is another issue all together though :lol: ) It allows me to have a much better feel on the brakes when trailbraking deep into certain turns when i don't worry about blipping.

Well I have pretty much stopped blipping now I have my slipper. Its great - I can just choose a gear, kick it down and focus on entry speed and line. Great.

Not sure about this one! But hey, guess one million racers can't be wrong!

Engine braking is still there, your wheel just doesn't around when you shift incorrectly, that's all.

No slipper clutch is needed for the 675.
