twist this around a bit

Ok -- I too have put alot of thought into the slipper clutch concept. I also had one on my 636 and didn't even know. So, that said lets turn this question around a bit to the younger generation i.e. I would be interested to hear from young racers who grew up with slipper clutches and then had to race without one. hmmmm I'm staying neutral as I'm sure this may exhaust itself.

Thanks,
I'm sure it's a good one.
I would rather use the money for track days & learn to be an expert blipper

I had one on my ZX-10R which was generally regarded as the best ever fitted to a Sportbike to date.. You could bang that puppy down as hard and fast as you wanted and it just stayed straight, even going down the hill from turn one to turn two at Laguna Seca where there is a serious off-camber that usually makes cars and bikes want to go tail out under braking. If you hammer it into first, you will get a LITTLE bit of lockup, but it's negligible.. Absolutely ZERO need to blip on that Bike.

Now I ride the 675 every day, I have been loving HAVING to blip on the downshift, it sounds SOOOOOOOOO sweet, especially with my full Leo Vince system,,

I burned up the stock clutch at my last race. I made the mistake of practicing starts too many times in and when it came time for the race I killed it at the start. Then I raced the entire race with the clutch slipping terribly whenever I hit the power band. Since I needed repairs I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade to the factory (STM) slipper clutch. Itís on order and should show up any day.
Iíve never replaced a clutch before. Seems easy but I hope I didnít waist money replacing all the friction plates and steel plates. Someone told me if the steel plates are blue they need to be replaced. They are all a blue/black. Anyone know how to tell if they are beat?
I also noticed that the only friction plate that seemed wasted was the first plate (inner most) did I not need to replace the rest?
Anyone know how to tell if I need to replace the judder spring and associated ring/ they are the same color as the steel plates. No apparent warping.
Any advice from an experienced clutch killer/replacer would be appreciated.

After spending a year racing a 250 and banging down gears without much protest, i'm probably going to need to invest in a SC as the same approach on the Daytona results in the back end skipping all over the track.
Blipping whilst hard braking to set my corner entry speed is too much for my feeble mind to process

Absolutely not! Slipper clutches help remove mental load from your clutch release, but they do NOT mean you don't have to blip.

Bikes with clutchless shifting have.....auto blippers :)
