SXV's do not come with slipper clutch unfortunatley. A surprising omission for effectively a dedicated race bike.


'Suter Racing' make slipper clutches for the SXV. Fairly pricey at $780 (670 Euros). Suter Slipper clutch

STM make a nice clutch for them, its a CRF450 unit. All that's needed is a spacer under the outer clutch cover and it's straight in.

That's weird that they don't have a slipper on the motard. Isn't that like the whole idea...like that's how they get sideways and dive into those turns???:confused:

All extra bits cost extra, maybe they should fit Alpina rims and the factory Marzocchi forks and unobtainable shock they are running on the factory bikes also.
Who will pay for all of that????
Who really needs it, more so than just wanting it????

The bikes have far less engine braking than a single anyway so the need for a slipper is not as pronounced as with a single.
