Slip & Assist Clutch into 2016

Just ordered a 2018 model Slip & Assist Clutch to fit to me 2016 GSX-S1000F,

lots of parts need ordering, (doesn't come as a kit) but covers etc are the same.

Suzuki dealer will be fitting it so i'll let update on how the install and riding it goes, including a list of parts needed.

Supposed advantages
  • Back torque limiting, slipper clutch tp prevent lock ups during downchanges
  • 20-30% less effort needed at clutch lever
  • Stronger clamping under acceleration

I know people have discussed whether the 2015/16 had a back torque limiting clutch, but there in nothing in the service manual or upon inspection of my clutch that would limit back torque/slip.

Is there something wrong with your clutch? Seems like a lot of expense and trouble.

It will be interesting to see what you think of the new clutch setup. Once you've ridden it for a bit, please let us know if you think it was worth the time & expense.
Also, I had a peek at your GSX-S website...... some good info in there, thanks for sharing!

Yes, got a warped disc causing it to drag, so rather than replace just the discs going to change the whole unit.

Not too expensive, 300GBP, 400USD including labour

I haven't been here long, but I can see I like this Paul guy. He has a modding sickness and by consequence he figures all this stuff out and tests it before we do. Looking forward to the results.

Usually too much heat.

Thailand is hot as fook.

Have you considered using a carbon fiber clutch pack in the new clutch?

Also, I think he's putting down more power than stock.
