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.
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.
Well it's just a matter of figuring out which side cover or housing they used. It is definitely a "when I'm not busy with work" project. Unfortunately, at 2k it doesn't include a STM Evo slipper.

Not to start a "flame war" or anything - but anyone who dumps 2 grand into a clutch for a Scrambler needs their head examined.
Tony, It's all good. No war going on here. I actually think it's over 3K depending on which slipper, master cylinder and slave that is being used for the Mod. ( Luckily, I have a lot of spare race parts laying around and the wife doesn't need to know about the rest!) I wouldn't do this with all new parts from Ducati. I think that it's worth waiting for STM to come out with a wet slipper for this bike.
Wouldn't an engine swap with an engine that already has a dry clutch be easier?
How hard can it be?
I wouldn't want to switch to a different motor. Many aspects of performance are not defined by horsepower.
It would seem that if you had to go to that extreme you should have bought a different bike in the first place.
Installing a dry clutch will take less that 2 or 3 hours. Now that someone has tried a different side cover and it fits. The swap is simple it is just a matter of $$$.
