Not good for corners when you have to downshift and flick it over quick and get back on the gas right away.
My wifes STM in her Daytona was like that when we first installed it.
Just add a little maintance throttle. not a ton but crack the throttle it will re engage.
she did recently tell me that now it's broke in it is not a slippery

That might be the case. Ever since I got the bike the clutch lever was adjusted too tightly, and unfortunately it took me longer than it should've to realize the problem, but who knows how many miles the bike did with the lever set up like that.

How do I know if the plates are too worn out? What's the recommended stack height for the plates?
