    Dry clutch

    Well I thought it was interesting. My 1100 Hyper is up for its 36K service. If I was a real man I would do it myself, but I have some important stuff going on.

    Anyway, the clutch noise has been horrific for the last 6 years. People look at me and shake their heads. When I'm stopped behind drivers at the lights they move away from me. Added to this annoyance it the fact that I can't hold the clutch in for more than a minute or it starts to creep forward, eventually taking off by itself without my agreement. When I let the clutch out I can feel some resistance and figured the master cylinder was on the way out. Confusing that the fluid never needed topping up but I was going to buy kit, just never got around to it.

    Today, I rang Justin a Pro Twin today to book it in for a service and described the clutch symptoms and he was right onto it. Something about the throw-out bearing binding and the clutch shaft spinning. Got me thinking that I was on the wrong track so on the way home tonight I held the clutch in while in neutral ... no weirdness.

    Ya lean something every day! Now I have to sell a kidney.

    The throw-out bearing was probably made in Japan.

    So the full service, with new clutch and Diablo Rosso Corsa tires was only $2400. That's 25 percent of the value of the bike. Suck on that Japper-riding losers!

    Seems quite reasonable for a Ducati 1,000km run-in check.

    Every so often I get tempted by something "Moto Italiano" - it's part of my heritage. Thanks for curing me of that tendency for another year though... my old man was a practical man as well as being italian. I'll stick with the practical option for another year.

    Well except the Bimota Mantra, the Ducati Multistrada, and Morbidelli V8 Mk1 which had a face only a mother could love, the Italians do make some very pretty bikes.

    Race track success only boosts the appeal. I've had 3 Italian bikes, shit, still have one and will continue to rag on Italian bike ownership until I draw my last breath.

    It pretty funny riding Italian and driving German. Their fundamental attitudes are worlds apart. Probably why the Austrians make nice bikes. Taking the best of both worlds.

    I have to say it is pretty quiet and smooth now. Back to its old self. The performance degradation was slow so I hadn't noticed how shit it was to ride.

    Here I was thinking that my old wog tractor was probably looking expensive to service with its 5000kms interval, you're only $600 short on the 140 000kms engine rebuild I had a few years ago.

    No thought of just replacing the pushrod and pressure plate? Would have been a very cheap fix and you'd hardly have time to scoff a beer while you did it.

    I donít think its reasonable to include replacemt tyre costs as part of a service cost, unless someone is suggesting that under like for like riding Dukes go through tyres twice as quick as japanese bikes

    The clutch plates were rooted after 36,000km so I was happy to replace them. The binding thing seems to have gone away so I'm wondering if the plates were getting out of shape. Not sure though.

    I agree about the tyre costs, I just threw it in the mix so the filthy, low-life Japper riders could celebrate that a wealthy, sophisticated Ducatisiti like myself would spend so much money on a routine service. I'm easily amused.

    Haha, understood.....on several levels! Iím in no position to point the bone on how things should be done to keep costs down, that boat sailed many financial years ago. Like you I choose to laugh rather than cry about it otherwise Lifeline would be hearing from me every other week.

    Servicing and replacement of Ducati's slipper clutch in the 1098R is surprisingly easy and cheap to do.

    Well trolled Sir. Well trolled.

    You might have got another 60,000 or so out of it before anything major. IIRC that was due to a flat slide failure?

    Yes however we got a lot of torque back after the exercise and the piston skirts were stained with fuel. So no major failure but a lot of wear.
