I don't think you are going to get any answers because, frankly, what you are proposing is a bit farfetched for most owners, so nobody has tried any of that, nor there is any interest, that I know of. For most owners it would be simpler buying a GSX-R than attempting to make a GSX-S into one.
....am not interested in racing, nor I approve of, and am not interested in more power from the GSX-S as it has more power than I can handle, as is. But all that said, was interested in what it would take to convert a '16 to the '18 slipper clutch.
I used to have a '16 Yamaha FZ-09 and they actually sell a conversion kit (the newer parts) to convert to latest model's slipper clutch, which I performed, and Yes, the actuation was considerably smoother..thus I went into the microfiche parts for the GSX-S, and identified the different parts between the '16 and '18 clutches, and came up with about $400.00 USD in parts. It would probably work just replacing those parts, but no one has done it.
Another alternative is a whole aftermarket slipper clutch sold for the 2005 -08 K5 old GSX-R engine, which is what the GSX-S has got. This might work too, but again, no one has done it....this would be about $800 USD..
