I don't believe slippers are just for racing.
I didn't really understand until the one on my Hayabusa was locked up at the shop to handle the extra HP from my turbo setup.
I can't see a silpper protecting you from a full stall at very low speeds but if you're going faster it might give you that extra fraction to grab the clutch.
I found the slipper allowed me to grab a better gear for a deep corner and get the clutch out earlier without rear chatter. I dont race on the road but when you're used to it you will miss it and get the occasional scary moment when its gone.
Just my 2 cents worth.
This thread was not establisted to teach you how to ride.
Slipper clutches are not only for the track. Depending on your motorcycle education / experience, it becomes a useful tool on the street as well. Same theory with GP shifting, it works extremely well on the street also.
Don't agree? Don't put one on your street bikes.
the main porpouse of slipper clutches is to avoid rear wheel chatter so you can trail brake while still having control of the bike.
Have you ever had your bike chattering on the street?
If yes, you are lucky to still have that bike, because once the tire starts bouncing left and right, the only one thing that you are able to do is going straight, and if you are lucky stop before hitting something.
With the slipper clutch, you can't feel the engine brake effect at low RPM's, which is something that you normally use a little bit on the street; with the slipper clutch you have to brake extremely hard, downshift at mid-high RPM's and let the clutch do it's job: the rear tire will move sideways as it was slipping on ice, so no bouncing, you can easily control the bike sideways and enter the corner at a faster speed... if you can really feel these advantages of the slipper clutch while riding on the street, you must have somebody that really likes you up there.
