Mine is actually way lower than the spec stack height - somewhere in the low 30s.

This should give clutch slip but doesn't, despite 130 rwbhp. What it does do is give a really light lever due to the reduced pre-load.

Interesting that it even engages let alone not slip at that height. You could also just run the correct height and try 2 less spring.

Why?

It works perfectly as is

I have a smooth, light, quiet clutch that neither nor drags, why would I want to change it??

I just wish the clutch in my 320d worked as well...

Morning Old rider. Read my post again. Didnít suggest you change your setup, Iím just a little surprised that your clutch works with not only less preload but also less friction area.

Agree completely... that looks less than ideal. However, it's in perfect shape if one wants that classic Ducati dry clutch "sound"...

Ah yes, just suggesting an alternative way to arrive at a similar result.

I fully expected slip and have been expecting it to start slipping at some point but not so far

Yeah, I ordered one in to be safe. It's not terrible, but it's not great.
