Not in the sense that a slider does, since the Gen II has clutch springs it will engage the clutch at any point the clutch is released. The arms add additional progressive clamping force over and above the initial static pressure. This innovative feature simulates a rider feathering the clutch out, but in a much more accurate and consistent fashion. This is why you see riders 'dumping' the clutch when using a Gen II, if it's setup properly there is no need for the rider to ride the clutch out.
