Just learn how to properly blip the throttle on your down shifts (while braking), the tail won't step out (this is the proper way to downshift). Slipper clutches were invented for tards who can't do this, or if you make a mistake.

Garage
I've got a dissassembled clutch in the garage somewhere. I'll try to get pics up of which parts to modify.

You need to pull almost the whole thing apart to get at it though.

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

Agreed to a point. Slipper clutch allows those who don't know how to blip/rev match, to ride without crashing.

However our ZX600R has "adjustable clutch" for a reason. (The new ZX636 doesn't have adjustable clutch.)

Having said that, I used to do clutchless up AND down shifts. As the pace goes up now I have to use the clutch for downshifts as well as suspension tuning to keep the rear from creating a mess.

And I already rode a ZX-6R with the clutch adjusted slightly. There is a difference even for proficient and fast rider. But it won't help a noob.

many of the kit parts are no longer available, the main components are the washer (which is thinner) the spring steel plate (hard to find) and then removing the fingers off 2 of the 4 springs behind the clutch hub nut.

What about only removing the fingers off 2 leaf springs + thinner washer (how much thinner?) . Does this mod make any changes ?
