    are you having issues with rear chatter on breaking/downshifting?

    I could be wrong but unless you are locking the back tire up (or getting ďchatterĒ) when downshifting into hard braking zones you really donít need one.

    They all seem pretty good and I have to say that I really love having a slipper clutch. Maybe some of our racers can chime in on what brands they like.

    This is what happens to me every time I try to downshift to 2nd going into turn 10 at NCM MP... Maybe I just need to just save up for a new (to me) bike!

    unless it becomes an issue i dont think your missing much. i had a slipper on 2 bikes the both my CB and 2006 1000rr track bike didnt have one. i only even noticed it when i mad terrible down shifts. most often when forgetting what gear i was in and going to 1st when i was trying to only go to 2nd. Now i have one again on the Superduke but the twins have so much engine braking its almost required.
