anthony55901 I REALLY REALLY think you need to re-evaluate your decision on owning a ducati and trading it in for some jap crap. I changed my OEM clutch for a slipper clutch, it makes more noise and works wonderful! i had someone tell me yesterday that there was something worng with my engine, my response was " its a diesal" and drove off looking at thier puzzled face. i love it!

MMA MIA You know in some parts it is illegal to make a dry clutch quieter

You're confusing km with miles. 20k miles is 32k km.

JDuc This thread is amusing...

35,000 miles on my bike.

I replaced the factory clutch to go with a slipper.

No problems. It's loud as all get out, and it's not caused a single problem DUE to being loud....

Yep, I'm with you.
Louder the better it really gets 'other' motorcycle riders talking when they hear it. I love it.

vanduc996 Find it amusing that anyone who is so offended by the music of a dry clutch would purchase a motorcycle that housed said offensive item....

The biggest improvement I noticed after the Mod was improved driveability in town and the lack of power pulse/driveline lash. I put my stock "muffler" cover on because of the racket at @ 3000 rpm in town. After the mod I could return to my 2/3 ventilated carbon cover and not feel everyones stare at the bike that is out of oil. I've since done this mod to others machines and all were eternally thankful, including some neighbors who didn't appreciate proper warm ups.

ducatiti Interesting. Actually, I find my open clutch mod too quiet compared to the others. I want mine to be louder. I guess with only a total of 3000 miles, it will get louder when I accummulate more miles.

Individual Friction Plates

Great! Now the only problem is where are we supposed to get individual friction plates? My dealer only sells them by the full-set ($213 ouch). So it seems to me that the most economical option would be to get a set of Barnett plates from Desmo Times at ~$160, swap those in, and use two of the OEM friction plates for this mod.

Unless there's some gray market on individual duc friction plates out there that I don't know about. Anyone got two spares lying around?
