Every bike has a slipper clutch, it is your left hand.

Seriously until you figure this out a built in slipper is nothing more than a band aide. On race bikes most tune out the slipper to bare minimum. I personally leave mine at stock setting on my race bike but still use the built in model I have had since birth, my left hand. I ride a lot of dirt bikes mostly 4 strokes and grew up mastering matching engine speed to rear wheel slippage.

I find the GSX with out one to be quite easy to slip into a drift using both engine braking with back shifts with proper clutch release. If not done correctly you'll get a little tire chirp or hop but that just says you are not getting it done at the lever correctly. Try again..

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.
Hi Paul! What is your opinion about two type of clutch? I'd like a buy a GSX-S 1000, but don't know, worth the more money spend to a newer model, or enough the pre 2017 model. Currently I'm using a 2005 Hayabusa (with TSS slipper clutch)

Thanks for help!

You won't get a reply from him. He is no longer around.
Later year models can be found cheap so why not opt for a later model. Blacked out footpegs and hardware, slipper clutch etc..
If an earlier year model is much cheaper than go for that. Not much between them.
