Hello all.
New rider here. I have been wondering about the 300R and if it has a slipper clutch. Does anyone here know for sure? The Honda site didn't specify if it has one. If not, does anyone know where, if at all possible, that I can obtain one? Either way thanks for your time. :D

The reason I want one is because I want to learn to ride with it so that I may eventually take the bike to PIR (Portland international raceway) and track it on the 2 days off I get a month. From what I understand having a slipper clutch will aid me on the track. Correct me with a source if I am wrong.

Yes it could help but its not essential. I've had my 300 at the track and yes I can think of one 50MPH corner (slowest on the circuit) that you come into it off a short straight at speed and your hard under brakes and changing down three times from 6th to third. Because there is not much weight on the rear wheel due to the force of the front end braking the rear tyre chirps and fish tails when you release the clutch each time.
A bit unnerving at first but you get used to it and can control it easy enough.
In this situation a slipper clutch would minimise or possibly even eliminate the above scenario and keep the bike more stable.

I'm neither for or against as Ive never ridden a bike with a slipper clutch, but I see the Ninja 300 has one so who's to say they are only suited to big bores.
