Thanks Curveman99 fro the reply. I may indeed opt for your suggestion.

I was hoping I might be able to pick up an aluminuium clutch from a later market bike that someone had swapped out to something fancier. Does anyoone know if the aluminium clutch basket from a 999 will fit on a carburetted 91-99 900SS?

I think any Ducati dry clutch basket will work, but I'd check with a dealer anyway about the 999 basket. You do have to remove the hub to remove the basket.

Thanks, that is a hell of a wait saving. I am guessing the 3.5lbs is for a stock steel basket rather than a stock alloy one. Anyone know what a stock 999 alloy basket ways?

If I switch to a 999 Alloy basket, I know I will need alloy plate kit but will I also need to swap the 900 SS hub for the 999 hub?

NGR Billet Clutch Basket

This is the best clutch basket we have used in many years. Lighter than most other baskets and made of very durable 7000 series aluminum. And it is only $169 right now.

Aluminum basket and aluminum friction plates will reduce the noise over stock steel baskets and drop a lot of rotational weight as well.

Thanks Moto, I have seen the NGR ones before and they were on our list of options. The quietness is probably more of interest to me than loosing weight as I will probably get rid of most of the rotating weight I want to off this bike by machining the stock flywheel down (We have a big machine lathe in our workshop so the only cost to do this will be labour).

I bought a poorly maintained 92 SS that was impossible to ride smoothly. Ordered OEM frictions but had a trip before they arrived. Cleaned frictions with brake cleaner, bead blasted the steels, put it back together. 1500 miles later still haven't put the new frictions in. Waiting for some noise or grabbing but still good. Might not be correct but worked so far.

Lucky you....

If you order from us, request US Post. Shipping is much better that way.
Our current website shipping estimater is based on UPS which is much higher--but we ship via lowest price carrier and then credit any savings back to your card.
