2018 GSXS 1000 slipper clutch

2018 are supposed to have slipper clutch, is that true.
I am trying to find OEM part list for the GSXS 1000F 2018 to see what is the difference beetween 2016 and 2018 clutch.
Just want to see if I can ugrade my clutch to 2018 parts.

I have done clucth upgrade on my last bike, ninja 1000 2012 clutch to the 2015 slipper clutch. Not to mutch parts to change and the mod was arround $500.00
The mod also add less pull on the clutch lever. It was and awsome mod on the ninja.

So all I have found is 2017 parts list and there is no change in the clutch parts from 2016.

For the one that have tryed the 2018, is there a difference on engine braking when downshift compaire to the 2016.

Thanks

All the GSXS bikes have something similar to a slipper. It's super smooth, back torque limiting (or something like that).

I doubt a slipper would be very noticeable.

Previous Rides:
2012 CBR250R
2014 CBR500R (ABS)
2016 FZ-07

Current Rides:
2016 GSX-S1000 (ABS)
2016 CB300F

In fact the things that I mist from the ninja clutch mod is the light clutch lever pull.
GSXS is quite smooth on downshift almost the same as a slipper clutch. .

Thanks PhuketPaul, would be great if you could have the parts list that you have changed.
Can't wait for your feedback.

So, have any of us managed to slide the back tire while downshifting? There seems to be some confusion about the 16-17 model year clutch having any special function such a back torque limiter. Someone with more skills than me can test this right?

I was also thinking about what effect abs and traction control will have when a sloppy downshift occurs and the rear tire is turning slower than the front. I don't think TC cares if the rear is turning slower than the front, but ABS sure does. I don't think ABS can do anything about it though unless you are braking.

Had a sloppy 2 to 1 shift into a corner the other morning and it sure felt like the back end went out on me. Not skilled enough to know for sure.

Yes, during spirited and aggressive riding, I have had a few occasions where the back tire slid a bit with downshifts during hard braking. Not full lockup, just not keeping up with the bike’s speed. This was normal back in my younger years, as no bikes had slipper clutches. It really is not a big deal!

I'm 56, I've had many bikes....the GSXS is the first bike i have owned with ABS and TC. All my previous bikes had only analog safety features....brakes and a competent operator

I have certainly locked up my rear tyre during downshifts on a couple of occasions when I have screwed up the rev matching on hard downshifts.
