Yes, it can. That's the fix for a grabby clutch in the '00 model.

I have a full Hinson in the '03, and I have never owned or ridden a better motorcycle clutch in all my life. That's what I have to say about them.

hinson you mean basket hub presure plate as well as frictions and steels correct

but the cost is sooo close to the slipper..the slipper is probally a better deal

Not if you don't like slippers, it's not. Besides, the clutch would work as well (at least for a while) with a stock boss, and at $45 each, or so, they can be changed out whenever it's needed. The key parts are the rest of them; the basket, pressure plate, plate set, and to a lesser degree, the springs.

Slippers, like the Hinson slipper, and auto-clutches like the Rekluse are two different things. The Rekluse takes care of feathering in the clutch on take off and at low rpm. It has no effect on engine braking.

The slipper, OTOH, is manual as to engagement and disengagement, but is made to slip to an adjustable degree when the torque is reversed, which reduces engine braking or eliminates it completely. There are often referred to as "back torque limiting" clutches.
