cush drive

I was wondering if we could run a cush drive like the 650l does, on a 650r? I have a 650r tard and sometimes I get rear wheel hop under hard braking, backing it in. Since I can't fine a slipper clutch for the 650 thought a cush drive would help. My friend has a L an I think I remember seeing a cush drive set-up. Would the L hub or aftermarket L hub fit the 650R? I have Talon hubs but I can't find them for the L. I might not be looking at the right places so thanks for anything you guys know.

Not sure I understand how cush drive comes in to play with braking? (Unless you're engine braking)

The 650L does not have a cush drive.

Oh, my bad. I thought when we changed a rear tire on a L that there was like 4 or 5 rubber pieces in the rear hub like a sportbike (cush drive). It would help to have some play in there for hard engine braking so the rear tire doesn't act like you slammed the brake on an start hopping.

My rear sprocket bolts directly to the hub on my L.

Sorry guys I think I'm having a senior moment! Think I was confused between my bikes, maybe the klr650 I was thinking of. Or not!

the KTM LC4 has a cush drive.

It's OK. Those started for me when I was a zygote...
