Slipper clutch

So I hear the 2017 Z has a slipper clutch. Also hear the design of this clutch makes for a much lighter pull at the lever. From what I'm gathering the engine is the same as my '15 so I'm looking into this as an upgrade. I need to compare some pictures of the parts, part numbers and then find out how to get this clutch here in the states. Anyone else thinking about this?

I'm assuming the whole clutch assembly gets replaced? Does the slipper clutch slide right on the transmission input shaft without mods? Where do the parts get sourced from?

I dont believe we ever posted the complete parts list for you guys.....sorry.. I should have done that.

My 2012 ninja 1000 was the first one we ever converted. I cant take credit for the parts list as that was compiled by the late, but great, Manracing....I know he would love the fact we are still finding his part list and his work, useful.

The listed prices are old, and I'll bet its more expensive, now? This list is the minimum amount of parts needed. This method lets you use a few of your older plates to save money. Obviously, the most simple and easy method would have you ordering all of the plates from the new clutch. Figure an extra 200.00, or so, if you order all new plates.



But, heres your part list:

13087-0566 Hub-Clutch $207.87
13187-0023 Plate-Clutch Operating $108.47
13089-0024 Plate-Clutch SPG COMP $8.49
16007-0711 Seat-Spring (X3) $1.77 $5.31
92145-1630 Spring (X3) $3.56 $10.68
13272-1413 Plate $7.33 (x1)
92154-1116 Bolt, 6x35 (X3) $5.13 $15.39
13089-0023 Plate, Clutch,T 2.3 $8.49 (x3)

and

2.0 plates 13089-1073 (buy three)

Also, you may want to consider a clutch cover gasket......50/50 chance of being able to re-use yours.

I hate to even call it a mod...theres no modding here. Remove your old parts and put these in. A very nice upgrade. Clutch pull is about 1/2 of what it was. Its so light, you'll think something is broken.

If you need anything else, pm me, or post it here. Like I said, I did not invent this, Jay did, but I'll help if I am able to do so.

First off I'm glad to find out there are guys on this forum that know how to turn a wrench. Second thanks for taking the guess work out of this conversion. The lighter clutch pull is my main motivation, but the slipper will be nice on corner entry. Off to the dealer!

Being that you'll have to order everything, check some of the online places.

Rocky Mountain atv discounts oem kawasaki parts and I had everything on my doorstep in 5 days.

Rocky Mountain, Babbitts Kawasaki, there are several places that are good.
