    Question '08 Slipper clutch

    I've been browsing around and just want to see if i can get a clear answer. Few friends of mine have gone out and got slipper clutches for their bikes. I read somewhere that in the 2k models the RSVs have them built in? Is there any truth to this statement?

    It's useless, if you blip the throttle then it does'nt work at all as it works
    on some kind of vaccum thingy, i think, anyway my back wheel will lock everytime
    if i do not blip, stm the way to go but 700 squid, ouch!

    Yeah i hear yah on the price. I just dropped 80 quid on a gear indicator cause i forget which gear i'm in so i always end up trying to go down to many gears... I've hit false neutral a few times and it scares the piss out of me. Just didn't know if it was something i should look into or not. When you say Blip the throttle you mean give it a quick rev before downshifting right? I do that on the road but that's just because i like the sound of my Beowulfs :P I am hitting up Snetterton tomorrow so will give it a try.

    Yeah m8 give it a good hand full at the same moment you down shift do it for every gear to help with the slowing down and to let the front brake off a wee bit sooner,wi the cans it will sound the dogs danglies.....
