I took it apart to check for wear after 8 track days. I did not find any wear at all. :)

I put the clutch on the scale and the ZX10/9 was 150g heavier.
I also have some small vibrations so I am going to balance the clutch housing.
Don't know how others do it so I guess I have to figure it out.

:)

I've edited the post so any pictures left on the server should now show up if they're not there then the post image server has lost them. Looks like you have 6 out of 9 so not too bad.

Ha!
Yeah, I now also found his post selling it back in 2016.
At 150$ it was a good/fair price, too.
Sent him a PN just in case he reads it and might restore some pictures / fill in some blanks.

But from what I gathered so far (and what I remembered), it is quite doable ..
As for changing the rivets, I know for that some '89-90s ZXRs had those come loose,
with the generally accepted (among average homegamers that is) solution being to use
(modified) M7 screws and ultra thin nuts which would then be threadlocked or spot welded (not sure anymore).

That aside, all the stuff about Z1000 gearbox being a straight replacement for the 9R engines,
does anymody know if the clutch basket would also be a straight fit?

- Reason I'm asking is I've found some info that the 2016 Z1000SX models (and up)
now have the slipper clutch, and the whole basket is straight fit to the regular Z1000.

So, if, by some magic, z1000 basket should fit the 9r engines without a drama, we could have a winner right there.

I can’t recall tbh. I reckon if you did a bit of trawling z1000 forums you may get an answer, as I know they used to fit 9r cams and the lighter 9 flywheel from memory. So chances are someone may have looked at the clutch if it was a bit beefier on the 9.

Don't recall which zx10r Gen,but sorting the rivets is a common mod for the track jockeys as the 10r clutch's are renowned for exploding under track conditions

Hello there fellas I really think that this thread should be revived .its a super great mod and probably the most expensive mod you probably can do besides race suspension. A new slipper clutch is over 900$ USD. Cough bullshit lol.

I drilled out the rivets on my cb900 clutch to replace the rubber dampers. The bolts came with the kit also. This should be the "hardest" most intimidating part of the project. AND IT SHOULDNT BE AT ALL. Below I posted the instructions for drilling out my cb900 clutch basket. Should give a overall picture to those who think this is way to hard. I also have been digging around he said he used a 07-08 zx10r clutch basket. The 07-08 zx6r clutch basket look identical to me besides the 4 digit number on 1 of the rivets. Not sure if its production dates or what. But I believe this mod can easily be done . He did this to a C1 I have a E engine I would have to see If the 07 08 works for the E.

I also noticed the 01 02 zx6r clutch is compatible with the 05-08 zx6r AND the 05 zx6r and up seem to carry the slipper clutch. What do you guys think ?
