A creative way of working with what Kawasaki designed. But I would think creating more slip in the reverse direction could also make it easier for the clutch to slip in the forward direction. They are telling you to use thinner friction plates but the reality is that when the friction plates are too thin, your clutch starts to slip under load. Essentially, they are suggesting you use a slightly worn clutch to take advantage of the "back tourque limiter"...I guess it would work for a while.
Just my $.02
