Here's a diagram Kawasaki has made public of the new slipper clutch installed in the '16 H2.

That slipper clutch looks suspiciously like the one use in other models...

"the same clutch already appeared on the new-for-2015 Ninja 300, Z300, and also Versys 1000, which shares the Z1000SX’s engine and transmission"

I suspect it should be a direct replacement on the '15s...

I sure hope so! My hand starts screaming at me after a few minutes in town! Osteoarthritis is no picnic.

Take another look at the '16 diagram. That clutch is an assist & slipper.

It should be a direct fit unless green squad decided to change the entire blue print of the h2 drive line for the 16 of course maybe for a rarity issue but I doubt it

From last years press release...

Transmission
The H2 clutch is a back torque limiting type such as found on many Kawasaki models, wherein the clutch center is made of two pieces joined by ramps that cause the halves to separate slightly when fed back torque, such as when downshifting. The arrangement allows the clutch to absorb some of the engine's energy so that it is not fed into the rear shock and thus the rear wheel is less prone to hop. The clutch is not the assist/slip design currently the rage in sport bike technology. Like Kawasaki sport bikes made previously, the clutch's back torque limiting property is tunable by adjusting the assembled height of the clutch assembly, and the road and track bike clutches differ in the number of plates.




I liked the clutch on the '11 ZX10R. It was nice and light. I was pretty disappointed in how much heavier this clutch is...

The 2015 H2 does have a slipper clutch. We make a Clutch Mod to disable it for drag racing.
