Track+750+slipper

How many 750 riders are using slipper clutches out there? I've read a couple of threads and see different feelings over the years. Basically, for track duty is it worth the ~$1k for that mod? I'm looking at possibly trying to find one less thing to worry about entering corners from long straights where I need to go down 2 gears or more. I don't do too bad at blipping and managing engine braking, but I do get the tail wagging and chatter sometimes. Saw some suggest clutchless downshifts, but not sure I want to try that under those scenarios.

Also wondered if it's even more necessary if I start going + on the rear sprocket. Any thoughts? Best brand? I was thinking about the EDR, but not sure if it fits the 750.

not sure if this needs to go into the the 'on the track' forum or not

I'm going to answer my question for anyone who may want to find information about this in the future.

I HAVE installed a STM on my evo2. All that is needed is a slipper for a first gen 1000s and a set of 1000s/910 clutch plates/discs. The basket remains. All it takes is pulling the 750 plates/discs and installing the slipper with the 1000s clutch pack. Bolt it all back up and that's it. I wasn't able to find a new complete set of 1000 plates/discs, so I bought a used complete clutch from a 910R.

Install is straightforward and easy. No modifications necessary.

FYI

So, how has it changed the control of the bike in the 2-gear downshift scenario?

Did you change rear sprockets?

I haven't got it on track as of yet with the new clutch. Hopefully I'll get to find out in a couple of weeks.

I have a +2 sprocket on the rear and from doing some test runs on the street, going down to 2nd gives a short skid and that's it. It should be fun to try it in track as I'm going bk to the same track where I was locking up my rear wheel on 2 to 3 corners. I'll report back my experience.

Curious if you’ve been at the track with your new clutch yet? Looking forward to hearing how it went!

Good to see this bumped because now that my F4 is back on the road I am wanting to look into this mod this winter.

Is it seriously all I need? Plates and disks from a 1000 to put a slipper in? Surprised nobody keyed on that and sold it as a kit.

I wondered the same, but my guess is that the issue of back torque wasn't that big a deal until the 1000. Some disabled the EBC that came with the bike and put in a mechanical slipper. I guess there was a large enough market at that point. I believe I have only locked my wheel up once on the street hard braking for a 90deg turn on a backroad. On the track, it was more frequent. I got good with blipping the throttle, but I didn't want to have to think about extra steps anymore while braking for a corner. Especially since that's where I would pass a lot of liter bikes after a straight.

Did a lot of internet searches and reading before buying parts. Once I saw the only real part difference was the clutch plates/disks, then I bought parts. As soon as I had everything apart, it was easy to see that the inner diameter of the plates/discs is smaller to allow more friction area. Could have done it years ago.
