STM Slipper clutch....how????

Hi,

I have a question for anybody who is familiar with how the STM Slipper Clutch works!

My understanding is, that the clutch opens slightly under braking, when the engine is "pushed"....so far, so good......but a friend of mine has installed a STM in his KTM SX 525 and he asserts that the clutch also opens under acceleration to prevent the wheelspin!!!!.....I don´t believe this at all and I also can´t imagine how this should work technically!!!

Can anybody provide me with a established explanation how and when the STM works?....I need a approved statement to convince my friend, that my version (just works under deceleration!) is right!

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks

it only works on hard decel.

I'm still trying to figure out how my cell phone works! :)

Well, when you are satisfied riding with stuff, where you don´t know how it works and what it does........

i can imagine that... :p

You are right, your friend is wrong.

Why in the world would anyone want a clutch that slips on acceleration? :)

yeah that makse no sense whatsoever

Tell your freind he's a goon! :)

Where's the best place to buy on for a KTM? (best price)

If it slips in both acc. and decel. then it's not a STM, it's a POS!!(Piece Of Sh......). Just kidding!!

For KTM people perfer the one KTM sells over the STM unit.
