I just replaced my stock cover with a Paulimoto vented cover, and spider. Even on an ST4S it looks bitch'n. Is there a torque to tighted the spring bolts? I just bottomed them out and made sure they were tight. It seems to run fine (have not ridden just started and put it in gear) Anything I should be concerned with? I know I need a manual....... But why when this is here....

Perfect.

Question: Why are you messing with the springs if all you did was put on a vented clutch cover...?

Re: Open Clutch (Mental998)

Mental,
Been drinking beers too.... I replaced the stock plate with the Paulimoto too.....
p.s. I'm new to Ducati, my first post back in August I thought something was wrong with the clutch because of the noise...
Now I have "True" music.

Re: Open Clutch (vanxr)

Your on the right path. Just snug them up and don't over tighten, because they will strip. Also Don't loctite them either. The soft Aluminum will hold them fine if properly tightened. You 've done well!

Enjoy!

Re: Open Clutch (Hyperpasta)

I had my pressure plate off not too long ago for some polishing *bling
bling*...A little blue Loctite would be great per BCM.

Is a vented clutch cover OK for a sporttourer given all the rain and crap that you ride through? It would seem that all the crud would not be good for the clutch.

I ride through a lot of rain and crap on my SS and have never had a problem.

Re: (TnDuc)

R..a..i...n? I didn't know Ducati riders knew what that was while they were riding. Good to see some of you do know what wet weather is like and go out in it.

Re: (Stick in Va)

If you start your engine, open the clutch cover and sprinkle/spray water on the clutch when it is spinning, then stop the engine and see if the clutch is wet.
I bet the clutch is rather dry and you will be very wet!

Imagine something rotating that fast and try to get something to stick on it!....

If it’s raining, I have my butler ride in the limousine and hang out the rear window with a big umbrella that he holds over me and my Ducati. I also have several turbine engine track dryers that go out ahead of me to help keep things dry.
When I get back, if I do happen the get a little moisture on me or the bike, I have on staff several naked Italian “umbrella” girls to dry things off.

Re: Open Clutch (vanxr)

I'm about to install a Speedymoto pressure plate and clutch cover on my ST4s as well. Is there anything else I need to do while in there? My buddy recommended some grease for the bearing. Any thoughts?

Re: Open Clutch (Mental998)

ok, so, not to be stupid, but I am new to the dry clutch, do I just unbolt the old, and bolt on the new? is it really that simple?

Yep. Except for torquing the bolts to spec.

Re: (Bucko)

Rain... that’s nothing. Now go ride in some snow... I'm not talking riding on a road with snow on the banks, I'm talk physically riding on snow.... then crash on a sheet of ice and break a blinker..... Ya not the smartest thing I've done, but it's funny now.

Re: (Mike996)

Paul speedymoto should supply you with a new through out bearing in your pressure plate


If not just check to see that its moving freely and no odd signs of wear

Either that... or a new throw-out bearing.


I can't help it... I'm an asshole.
