Hello

What's the purpose of having a dry clutch ?
You want to give money to your preferred Ducati dealer every 30000 km ?
You want to have a bike whose sound, when idling, is louder than a Massey Ferguson tractor ?
You want to clean your clutch every 5000 km because it becomes unefficient ?

I had 2 Ducati with dry clutch and I am really happy to have one now with a classic clutch, silent and lasting the bike life without any specific care program...

The "subject" won't last long....

Some aftermarket vendor would have to come out with a "dry clutch kit", made especially for this bike - it would be VERY involved, in terms of what would need to be modified.

Extremely unlikely - to say the least.

Hello
Please get back on the subject !!!
No problem, I can come back to it, as I made the reverse study on my ST2, to decide whether it was possible to use all the components of an ST3 with a "wet clutch".
Conclusion : I gave up, it was too complex, I needed to change many things, like the engine boxes...

In your case, it will certainly be as complex as the reverse, you'll need to find ways to have no oil coming in the clutch, not easy to put the necessary joint to avoid that. Need also to be sure that the oil circuit is not disturbed... no lack of pressure and things like that...

It may become even simpler to adapt an entire engine with dry clutch.

There is some kit for monster 821 and 1200 , panigale as well! In fact , the right side engine case need to be change ( need to find out , which engine with dry clutch is similar to the 796 on the scrambler) , need a dry clutch, a slave cylinder, clutch master cylinder! I just hope to find some people here with the experience that could help to achieve it!

I am still curious to the why would you want a dry over wet clutch? Maybe you have a wardrobe filled with the shirts Ducati used to sell that say "Yes it's supposed to make that noise"?

Because we want to keep it original as the way it should be!!!
Soon , you wont have any driving belt, and maybe next is a four cylinder like a jap bike!!!
All of this for the sake of productivity and $$$$$$$
Where is the ducati soul???

I'm not planning on adding a dry clutch, ever. But anybody reading this who is interested in learning about adding a dry clutch will agree that the "dry clutches are silly!" posts need not be submitted. Create your own thread about the opinions on dry vs wet clutch for that, please. Yes, I realize this PSA is adding more clutter to this thread.

Anyway, I've seen 796's with dry clutches before. IIRC correctly, the kit was sold by Ducati Fever. I wonder if that would be usable at all in this case.

My understanding of the advantages of dry vs. wet is primarily directed to ease of maintenance for a racing bike since they need replacement on a regular schedule. Since Ducati has always billed themselves as a race bike company that just happens to make street bikes that makes sense.

Most people may argue that a dry clutch on a street bike is a marketing move for the most part but I guess there are plenty people out there that like the dry vs. wet.

In my opinion... I love dry clutches. I've owned many. The reason I would love a conversion is that I really want a STM slipper in my bike. Once you ride a slipper that actually works you don't want to ride without it.

But I thought the Scrambler CAME with a slipper clutch... :confused2:
It does... but doesn't perform as well as the aftermarket unit he is talking about.

Thanks Tony!
The clutch is like the suspension. It works but not well enough:)

The clutch is a Adler or Adige racing. What Ducati is giving you has a lighter clutch pull so it works as designed. With the aftermarket racing version of a Adler slipper clutch they supply a tuning kit. Which is basically different springs and spacers. No kit is offered for the OEM unit that we have in the Scrambler. In the US the supplier is Parts Unlimited so that equals no customer service or tuning parts.

The STM is a true slipper clutch that is very, very tunable and different spider springs are available. STM offers wet slipper clutches for Ducati's but nothing for the 796/Scrambler that I know of at this time.

Any type of fast riding and the stock APTC clutch is worthless.
