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

Recommended Posts

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

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........

You are right, your friend is wrong.

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