Slipper clutch

Anyone thinking about installing 2016 slipper in their 15 model? Will it fit?

Hey TQ.,
I'm pretty sure the answer is yes. It was talked about on another thread. I'm not sure what thread it was.

Yep! I plan to do just that. That thought is as far as the plan has gotten however. Don't have a clue on compatibility and I'll be looking into this after the turn of the year.

The 15 has a slipper clutch. The 16s slipper clutch has an assist to help w/ stiff lever pull. I noticed the harder pull initially (first 1000 miles) even listed it it in the Kawi survey as something to improve but havent noticed the stiffer pull recently at all even w/ a 10mm shorter clutch lever. Maybe my hand has gotten stronger and or gotten used to it or would an hydrolic clutch actually get broken in to become lighter, prob not I guess. Dunno but Im good, no need to try/install the 16 assist.

The 2016 is a "slipper-assist" clutch. To make the load at the lever lighter.

If you manage the 2015 clutch ok then there will be no advantage. I hate to think what the 2016 clutch pack will cost, I bet it's a four-figure sum.

thanks for the replies. I realize the 15 already has slipper, I'm just interested in the assist. My initial question was not clear.

I tried the lever pull on the 2016 model at the Long Beach show and it is ridiculously light. Feels like a Ninja 300. I might consider a retrofit because my Mrs rides the bike occasionally and she has a problem with the clutch pull.

Great idea, I know what I'm getting my wife now for Christmas.
