Recommended Posts

no,but they are in severe need of one.

Aint dat da truth! My rear end literally feels like it leaves the ground if I downshift hard without slipping the clutch myself.

If you want to die then yea go for it.

Supermoto riders make the rear wheel lose traction by dropping it 2 gears and releasing the clutch.

Then when the rear wheel is spinning faster than the front it'll slide out from under you.

In Theory!

why havent any companies made a slipper clutch yet for the drz? Seems like they would have a good return on investment considering how many supermoto drz's there are out there.

Well I have looked into it (went to super moto school) and when they drop it 2 gears or whatever amount they do it causes teh wheel to go slower.... not faster

causing the rear end to lock.... teh slipper allows teh bike to spin the rear wheel just slow enough to break traction but not to much so the wheel wont lock

EDDIE- Shift lock is a term used in drifting (car world) meaning droping it a gear without rev-matching causing the rear end to lock... this is one way of initiating a drift, similar to trail braking

the lock up has too much influence on suspension(brake jack) to stay active and will always slide whether on the brakes or 3 gears too low tryin to back it in. DH bicycles have almost fixed brake jack completely. i used to hate that shit on my YZ125/250 race bikes(before setup properly). try and brake too late and get an ass full of brake jack. no fun without traction! on road or off.

If more people email or write STM I'm sure they'll pull their head out and start making one. I emailed them back in January and this was the response;

Hello,

about Suzuki DRZ400 we don't have anything in this moment. Probably in the

future afte seeing the requests we could think to make it.

Stay tuned on your site to see more news.

So get writing, bug the crap out of STM, or any other slipper clutch maker until they yield and start making one.

Maybe the demand from them is not as great as say for a CRF450F or other track/race SM bike?

that will cuase the rear wheel to lock up, chatter and you to crash your brains out on a sm.

you dont want the rear wheel to stop.

Been there, almost done that... Im getting a little better at slippingh it by hand, but theres nio way Im going to be able to do it as well as a slipper lap after lap

Thanks anyway

If you dont equate any b.s factors ... it could be coming.

Dear Jay,

about the DRZ 400 we are waiting for the test results, and then we could start for the production. I think that there will not be particular problems so in one month it could be ready.
