Brutale Slipper Clutch @ Steering Damper

HAS ANYONE INSTALLED A SLIPPER CLUTCH AND OR STEERING DAMPER ON THEIR BRUTALE. I UNDERSTAND THAT A SLIPPER MAY NOT BE NECESSARY UNLESS YOUR POSSIBLY TRACK RACING. BUT I CAN'T STOP THINKING THAT A SLIPPER CAN HELP PROLONG THE LIFE OF YOUR CLUTCH AND IN ADDITION GIVE YOU A MORE SMOOTHER CLUTCH ACTION AND SAFER RIDE. BECAUSE THEIRS ALWAYS THAT CHANCE A WOBBLE CAN OCCUR WHEN ONE RIDES HARD. I KNOW THAT A FEW OF MY FELLOW MEMBERS IN THIS FORUM HAVE INSTALLED A STEERING DAMPER TO THEIR BRUTALE. A PRACTICAL NECESSITY AS WE ALL KNOW. SO LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK AND HOW THESE PARTICULAR EQUIPMENTS SOUND TO YOU.

AM I WRONG, PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS? ESPECIALLY ABOUT A BRUTALE SLIPPER CLUTCH. THANKS

STM??? Do you mean an STM slipper clutch?

STM is the brand!!

The slipper clutch will not make for a smoother ride... it's really for high rpm downshifts(racing environment), however would be considered a very nice convenience and luxury for the street.

Steering damper in my opinion is a must(Brutale 910)! Big bore power, short wheel base, radical geometry = head shake and front end lightness. Ultimately ending with a violent tankslapper, that if your lucky enough to save, you'll need a fresh pair of shorts!!!

I was wondering if anyone makes a stem-mount type damper, rather than the fugly damping rod types; like Scot's maybe?

2nd gear wheelies definitley produce some tank slappers

I think it's just a matter of making the mounting bracket for the Brutale... you could always call them and ask.

I put the Matris M4R steering damper on my 910S.

The difference is really great. You feel more confident when you put the power on bad road.

No more shaking direction (I don't now how you say "guidonage" in english) It's a real must. I think it should be a factory piece of the Brutale as it is for the F4 who has the same geometry.

I've seen that one; I may get it.
I agree it should be stock, although the Brutale actually has slightly more relaxed geometry than the F4.

You can buy it without hesitation. It's easy to fit and works perfectly.

Scotts does not and will not be making a mount for the Brutale...I've asked...many times (I live near their shop).

However, I will probably be having a mount built by a guy they recommended. I'm sure once he's done one that others would be easier. I'll post after I've had it done.
