Hey Guys,

I undone my slipper clutch adjusting nut by mistake while replacing my spur gear, and i'm wondering what's it purpose? I know the Bell clutch is the actual clutch for moving power from motor to gearbox, but im unsure of slipper?

Is it purely there as a safely mechanism if the gearbox gets a massive instant load? Or does it compliment the bell clutch somehow?

So basically, if its just there for protection of the tranny, it would not be 'terrible' to run the slipper clutch fully tightened??? (I didn't realise this was an adjustment, and went through 1/4 tank before realising i have over tightened) Could i have damaged the bell clutch?
