Push starting -again

I was wandering if the slippers clutch of the gsx s1000 won't prevent push starting. On a flat battery i push start my sv by letting myself fall onto the saddle while releasing the clutch but won't the slipper clutch ... slip by doing this exercise on the gsx?

Easy to test. Clutch in, kill switch off and on again, clutch out. Do it slow speed as to mimic pushable speed. My bet, it works.

I don't know but my old 05 R1 would not fire up on a flat battery no matter how much I tried to clutch it.

Hayabusa wouldn’t fire either, I think the injectors couldn’t get primed. If the fuel pump came on but not enough battery to turn it over, I could still bump start it. I never tried my SV though.

IIRC, not usually. The slipper clutch is specifically designed to not let the wheel drive the engine.

Hmmm, I didn’t even think about it and my gsxs fired right up dropping the clutch in second gear rolling downhill. You saying it shouldn’t with this clutch? However, my battery wasn’t dead either.

Slipper clutches reduce back-torque, they don't completely eliminate it.

What year is yours?
Only the newer ones have a slipper clutch. No disrespect but yours looks like 15-16 colours
