06 gixxer 1000 slipper clutch adjutment

This is my first experiance with a slipper clutch and i am trying to get some information on how to adjust it. My bike has 2400 miles on it and just started slipping. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So your clutch is acting like it's slipping under acceleration?

Yep! I know that it has to be adjusted just not sure how. I work from 5 am to 6pm daily so its kind of tuff to get to the bike shop to pick up a repair manual

Have you called you dealer and said WTF? I know I'd be pissed. Have you tried GSXR forums?

the mechanic at the dealer told me it would slip after break in and also told me that if I brought the bike in they charge to adjust the clutch. The clutch is still good it just needs adjusting.

I wouldn't count on it . the guy told me that they charge because it is considered wear and tear. It would be nice if suzuki would tell you how to do it in the manual. Nothing like buying a bike for 10k then they don't even supply you with basic info. Just more money for them.

I have a buddy that's the service manager at my shop and he usually hooks it up. We'll see. Still got 500 miles before that happens.
