I want a real slipper, but I am not sure if the computers will be able to handle a mechanical slipper? Considering it is factoring for EBC?

That's a good point. I'm not sure how that work. I'd be willing to bet there will be an ecu update for it being as though most racers will want one I'd assume. I guess in the mean time, you could always turn ebc off.

If the 1199 can have a slipper clutch and EBC im sure the 899 can to with an ECU update. So far i haven't found the need for a slipper clutch. The EBC works wonders. Was actually quite surprised at how it kept the back in check.

A slipper won't interfere with the EBC, they can work together, the slipper will just provide extra slip beyond what the EBC can handle if you really got a significant variation in rear wheel speed vs. engine speed. As noted above, some riders will find that EBC is enough to keep the rear end from squirming and there will be no need for a slipper. For someone racing or Advanced track days, they might still find a slipper is beneficial. That's something that I would save my money on until you see a real need for it, since the slipper will go through clutch plates faster than a non-slipper will.
