This past Sunday was the first time ever for my using a slipper clutch. I'd roar onto the front straight in fifth gear and at the end, pull in the clutch, bang down into 3rd gear, and dump the clutch while hard on the brakes and enter turn one. The rear end of my bike tracked smoothly, the chasis wasn't upset, and the effect, although rapid, was as though I had made a nice and easy single gearshift down. Nice! I felt like I knew what I was doing when, in fact, the slipper clutch knew what it was doing.
Get a slipper clutch if you're out on the track but I don't see much use for having one on the street unless you're in the habit of agressive downshifting around town.
