Same here : 11500 km without any problem.
It seems to me that you're missing a specific part, which role is to lock the clutch setup.I'm a bit worried because I find myself adjusting the clutch tension on my bars fairly often. I just assumed it was because the adapter isn't locked in place...?
Could you maybe take a close up of your clutch cable/lever area so I can compare?Hello
It seems to me that you're missing a specific part, which role is to lock the clutch setup.
On my bike, I can't turn the clutch setup screw, without unlocking it before.
And, in 11500 km, I've never touched the setup. No need for that.
I can confirm. The pivot moves with a finger (not the pinkie one) pressure just between the free play.I've set it as per the manual, at 3-4mm. I want to know what should happen to the pivot at the engine, which isn't in the manual. Mine can be moved slightly with my finger, and I think that makes sense, I just wanted confirmation.
That's your clutch wearing, there is no lock. Once mine was fully wound in at the lever I had to use the course adjustment under the tank, that was soon used up too and the clutch started slipping.I'm a bit worried because I find myself adjusting the clutch tension on my bars fairly often.

I would rather say that the clutch is setup in the factory and that the dealer doesn't do anything upon it while preparing the bike for delivery.I can't believe my dealer adusted the cable incorrectly on the new one, muppets.
Last week the dealer I had my bike towed to told me Ducati would not be covered the repairs under warranty and it would cost around $650 for parts and labor. He mentioned that there was not enough free play with the aftermarket levers and believed this to be the root cause of the clutch wear. I was pretty irritated and told them I would contact the local dealer I bought the bike from. They agreed to pick up the bike last week but have not had time to look at the bike yet. I'm hoping to get an update in the next two days and have this either covered under warranty or have the dealer cover the repairs since they installed the aftermarket levers. I still can't believe a clutch would fail around 1500 miles...Stand your ground it's a warranty job, a clutch failing at 1500 miles is a joke. My bike now pulls a *lot* better at 60mph+ than it ever did before, must have been slipping from day 1. Good luck.
If there's no free play, I'm pretty sure a clutch can fail in less than 1500 miles. Without any free play, the disks will constantly slide against each other and will be worn very quickly as they are not designed for a constant slide. The normal state for a clutch disk is to be firmly in contact with the next one, without any relative movement between both disks.I still can't believe a clutch would fail around 1500 miles...
Fully agree !Since the dealership did the lever swap, you'd think they'd be responsible for the repair. Good luck, let us know how it goes.
