Clutch chatter

Anyone have chatter with their slipper clutch? I only notice it going into one of the faster corners at a track. I thought it was the front suspension, but I think itís actually the clutch.

I'mma gonna go on on a limb here and say that you're feeling the slipper clutch slipping. That's what it's a supposed to do.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Naw, my last few race bikes have had slipper clutches. This seems like itís not working correctly. Put some serious vibrations in the bars.

I suffered this on my Gen1... when brake hard and downshift quickly, the clutch lever make some chatter (kicks)
I follow all recomendations that I found and only one works, you can try it all, or go directly to the last

First I dismounted the clutch and soap the rings and plates in new oil all the night. (no gain)
Changed the clutch springs by others from the race kit. (light gain)
I changed the angle where the gear bar pulls the gear selector. (more gain)
Swapped the whole clutch, basket and plates, by another "used". (the chatter dissapear)

After a Gen1 , and Gen3, finally my Gen5 ride hard with some gifts.

I don't know if your describing clutch chatter or not but rather than buy a judder plate you could drill your basket i always do this and have never had any clutch problems, but that doesnt mean i would have, had i not drilled my baskets

Next time on track Iíll have autoblip. We will see if that changes things I guess. Itís been a few years since Iíve had a bike without it and I might be releasing the clutch lever a little too quickly. A suggestion was to pull in the clutch when the chatter happens and see if itís still there. Guess Iíll have to wait for the next track/race day.

And for reference, it was enough chatter that I though there was an unbalanced front tire or something wrong in the front end. From talking to people in the know, they think itís probably the clutch making the rear tire bounce. 🤷🏻*♂️

when i pop a bad clutch release i get squirrely in the back and don't get chatter.

Which corner are you talking about at thill?

I doubt going to a gen1/kit judder plate would help as that is supposed to be for launches.

Maybe cut a finger off one of the backtorque springs or adjust the stack height and pre-load per the race/kit manual.
