Ride Like a Pro DVDS, seems like one way of getting back to basics and to practice SAFETY road techniques BUT does anyone know HOW this feathering or "FRICTION ZONE" of the clutch would affect the wet clutch and for that, how about the BRAKES and the ROTORS???
Thanks!

Feathering the clutch in the "friction zone" works just fine with a wet clutch. Try it, you'll like it.
No problem for the brakes and rotors either.
If you practiced slow speed maneuvering 6 or 8 hours per day, there might be some premature wear, but for normal practicing for normal riding, I don't think there will be any effect.

Motorman refers to airing out the clutch - riding around with out using the clutch to cool it down. He also suggests keeping the revs down.
