Clutch, dry - Stack Height questions
2008 Hypermotard 1100.
The Ducati manual states (if it is to believed; also states I have a wet clutch) that the stack height should not be less than 46.1 mm, how do I find/figure out what the maximum height is?
I replaced the clutch pack (aftermarket, Ducabike) last month and it was performing great. I've started to feel some slippage here and there, not consistent, just a bit. I pulled the plates for a quick inspection and there's still plenty of material, in-fact they still look new. I suspect it's bedded in a bit and has just dropped the stack-height under the minimum and the pressure plate is just about sitting on the drum. I'll measure it again this weekend just to make sure.
So what I'm wondering, aside from the springs possibly being weak (coincidentally I have a blingy set on order), I should add another plate or mix & match the driven plates to bring the stack up to the correct height.
What is the correct stack height or what is the limit for the pressure plate to stay engaged on the clutch drum?
