Default Help with Ducati Dry Clutch

Will have several questions about setting up a one-off Ducati dry clutch.

First question:
I read that an aluminum (plates) clutch should be used with an aluminum basket & hub, and a steel (plates) clutch should be used with a steel basket & hub.

The clutch hub I have is aluminum. The basket I have is aluminum, with stainless inserts. The clutch pack that's sold with the basket has steel plates.

Pretty sure I should use an aluminum (plates) clutch pack because of the aluminum hub, but the steel inserts will break down the aluminum fingers faster than steel.

Any advice from the Ducatistas??

Use seel plates due to the steel inserts in the aluminum basket. The outside fingers on the plates wear much faster than the grooves that contact the hub.

Pretty sure there aren't aluminum clutch plates. That wouldn't last very long. Or do you mean aluminum friction plates? I dont see the value in an aluminum basket either and dont have one. I have an aluminum pressure plate though. I bought Barnett friction/steel plates a while back and have been happy with them, but I wont run an aluminum basket.

Tl;dr only run steel plates in an aluminum basket if it has steel inserts or you will be replacing the basket along with your clutch plates.
Then ditch your cover completely and go ride.

Pretty sure he means aluminum steels (or whatever you want to call them). I know you can get them for SV650s as well. http://www.twfracing.com/PartsPages/...tchplates.html

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Default Re: Help with Ducati Dry Clutch

From my browsing, looks like there're 2 types of dry clutch packs for the Duc dry clutch- marketed as aluminum-type, or steel-type. Definitely says not to use the steel-type with an aluminum basket (without inserts).

I have the Barnett aluminum basket with stainless inserts. I believe steel-type pack is the appropriate choice, and also a steel hub.

Here's the problem. I'm not sure about my clutch hub. It's aluminum, and could be a one-off. Will try to verify the origin, but might not be able to. Last thing I want to do is mess up the hub, so I think using an aluminum-type pack will be easy to replace when it gets beat up by the Barnett basket.

The best move might be to get a pure aluminum basket. But, I'm thinking that the stainless inserts could give the hub more longevity.

Will post pics of the hub.

Default Re: Help with Ducati Dry Clutch

The Ducati pressure plates have a mark that needs to be aligned with a mark on the hub.



NOT my hub:



Of course, my custom hub doesn't have any alignment mark:



What's the purpose of the alignment mark???

Rear view of the pressure plate. Alignment mark is on top. Notice the left and right side cutouts are mirror image. Also, all of the 6 cutouts on each side are different.

What's the purpose of these cutouts???





Hope I don't need to join a Ducati forum to figure it out.

Thanks, Kenny!

The shape of the cutouts made no sense compared to the outer shape of the hub.

You're totally correct. Without the alignment mark, I had to keep turning the plate, until I hit the correct alignment. Then the plate drops all the way down onto the hub. Never realized it dropped all the way down. Never hit the sweet spot before.
