    ????

    If you're on the street why don't you just rev match the downshift?

    Why would you need to be braking & downshifting that hard on a ZX-10 on the street?

    Slipper clutches and rear tire life

    The Back Torque limiter (Slipper) is set way too tight on my TLR.
    I have deliberately got it to uncouple, but it's way too harsh.
    Needs lighter springs.....

    pffff, just look who asked the question

    Have you ever seen what makes a slipper clutch work? Kinda odd it has nothing to do with the clutch itself
