    Does 2008 RSVR Bol D'or have slipper clutch?

    As above, I've been arguing this with a mate.
    He seems to think my bike does have a slipper clutch, I don't.
    I haven't been able to tell by riding it, as I've been riding so long without slipper clutches that I can't bring myself to bang down the box and dump the clutch.
    I go down a gear at a time, blipping the throttle and letting the clutch out each time.

    Vacuum operated ,separates the plates so the engine braking isn't so manic,,if you blip the throttle it negates the advantage of the system....ha ha I blip as well
