It had to happen sooner or later. On a recent trip I dropped the bike through my own fault by applying front brake in a slow turn on loose gravel. The bike dropped and when I picked it up the clutch lever was dangling by the cable. This was a long way away from my destination with no help in sight. Duct tape to the rescue! I managed to fix the lever by taping it together and it lasted just long enough for me reach where I was going. With no Ducati dealerships within hundreds of miles I took my chances at a local motorcycle shop and found a replacement lever for about US$2. It fit just fine and I could complete my trip back to my Ducati dealer where they had no levers in stock but looted a new lever off of a new bike for US$25.
