A few weeks ago, I stumbled across an obscure post on a 2 yr old thread on the WMRRA forum that said the K5 thru K8 GSXR 1000 slipper clutch will drop right in my K1. In a matter of minutes, I was on Ebay to see just what one of these slipper clutches would cost me. A few days later, I sniped a K6 slipper clutch for $85 shipped. Well, hell? I'll just be having that then! A few days later, it was in my hand and I had the service manual downloaded to make sure I received all the right parts. Here's how it went. Enjoy! Bodywork off, clutch cover removed and now, it's time to dig in on this thing. Off with the clutch springs. Here come the old burned up drive and friction plates. Remove the clutch pushrod thing and get at that hub. Instead of buying the tool to hold the clutch hub, I just pop rivet a friction and drive plate together to keep everything from spinning. Yeah, it's kinda ghetto but, making my own tool works every time. The bearing has to come out first to get enough clearance on the clutch basket to remove it. No problem. Old one drops right out. New one drops right in. Now, it's time for the super special, back torque eliminating, slipper parts to go in. Thrust washer in place and the new clutch hub goes into active duty. Washers and nut go on, electric impact gun gets to work, nut is center punched. Time for more special slipper clutch parts. Time to lube up all the friction/drive plates and install in the correct order. Install new adjustable pushrod and throwout bearing. Time to install springs. Now, all that is left is to adjust the clutch pushrod, install a new gasket, fill'er up with oil and give it a test ride. Easy peasy! I saw Hinson aftermarket slipper clutches going for $1100 or more. So, $85 and a little bit of my spare time was a deal I couldn't pass up. Now, I think my corner entries at the track days should be a little easier on my meat head riding style of spinning the shit outta the engine going into turns. My lack of any semblance of smooth riding should be less of an issue now. Can't wait to give it a try at Spocaine next weekend. Yeehar!
