You don't need an auto clutch on the street that is for sure.

Probably don't need either a slipper or autoclutch for the street. With that said, I have a Rekluse installed in my SM450R which I use on the street for fun. It takes some getting used to and I still use the clutch lever for upshifting/downshifting most of the time. The main difference is that depending on how you set up the Rekluse, you can carry a gear higher through tight sections of twisties and the clutch will provide enough slip to keep you moving at a rapid pace. Not a huge benefit, but it is something different.

No wheel hop on fast downshifts and less compression braking.
