Slipper clutch on CBR 1000RR

Sorry for the repost but noone in the "Tech" forum replyed.

I recieved my Novice CCS license from Tiffany at Clearchannel last week. After just a few track days to get used to the bike I am have a chattering problem with the rear end sliding all around.

Found a 1000RR slipper clutch on Ebay for cheap.

Will this solve my problems?

What is the install like, simple bolt in?

Do I HAVE to get the clutch holding tool to properly install it?

How many other people are using this model slipper?

One performance component you see a lot more of these days on the latest stock sportbikes is a slipper clutch (or as some manufacturers refer to it, a “back torque limiter”). The concept of the slipper clutch is as the name implies; it allows the clutch to actually “slip” during heavy braking situations, preventing the engine compression braking from locking up the rear wheel and causing it to “chatter,” resulting in chassis instability. This permits much easier control during aggressive corner entries, as the rider doesn’t have to devote so much effort to blipping the throttle between downshifts. Some bikes are more susceptible to rear wheel chatter under hard braking, since it depends on the engine configuration and overall gearing.

[I cut and pasted this info that I found elsewhere on the net]

From what I've read on the net, if you can take apart and reintall your clutch, then you are probably able to install the slipper clutch. It's all about reinstalling everything sequentially just like how you disassembled it. Some bikes requre a special tool to remove the clutch basket, which is probably the case for your bike.
I found a STM slipper clutch for your bike, which is suppose to be one of the better ones for $1200 new, so maybe you can score on EBAy.

I'd deal with it and learn how to blip the throttle on entrances before paying that much, but to each their own.

hope that helps
