Installing new Suter slipper clutch... should I put in the bigger springs?Just like the title says...

I am not referring to the disc shaped springs, I am talking about a set from an R1/GSXR/EBC which look like a traditional coiled spring.

Is it all just gimmick?

will it mate well with my configuration:
my bike is a 2012:
1) the super clutch (without the heavy springs)
2) Factory Pro shift star
3) KLS Quickshifter
4) Full Evo4 Club Race Kit with Akra tune & thin head gaskets

Id try the springs that come with the clutch.

If you want more pressure, or more snap when the clutch is doing its thing, then install stiffer / bigger springs (if they fit). It may make the slipper clutch more noticeable when its working.

Does the Suter use traditional clutch springs?
With the exception the stock "round dish spring"

There is an additional set of traditional looking springs (which I am thinking is what I m opting to change).

Others have done this mod

Keep in mind that I am running a 2012 RC8R

Is this coiled spring mod preferred?

suter does not use coil springs like OEM and other brands.

it uses a concave spring. I received 3 different rated spring for my 990 suter.

higher rate spring for more HP/torque. it affects the clutch lever effort. I put in the highest rated one as I don't have a problem with the slightly heavier lever.
