I have a 2000 GSX-R 750 with about 47,000 miles on it. It's my daily driver to work. I think it needs a clutch. Would anyone be kind enough to recommend one? I read the article in Sport Bike where they compared an "01" 1000 to an "08" 1000 and they said that they put in a slipper clutch in it. Should I replace the clutch with an OEM part or go with a slipper clutch from aftermarket? Anyone ever done a valve adjustment on this bike either? What all is involved with that? I used to be a VW tech and I have a lot of experience working on Honda's too, so I know how to turn a wrench. Any suggestions? I like the bike and I don't want to modify it too heavily.

OEM or aftermarket clutch kit (friction and steel plates) will run you $150-$185. A slipper clutch from STM $1,050 or Yoyodyne $850. I personally like DP Braking clutch kits. Slipper clutches are great for trackdays/racing or saving a newbies life/bike when they dump the clutch on a downshift at too high of rpm. Believe me, you new and semi-new riders that have always had slipper clutches in your GSXR's (2006 and newer) don't know how good you have it, especially if you do trackdays or like to "blip" on downshifts.

Why is there such a huge difference in price when you step up to a slipper clutch? Does it always cost $1,000+ when you need to replace that part? Or is the $1,000 the upfront cost to install the slipper clutch? Any body ever upgrade their rotors/pads to a bigger set?
