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

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

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...

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.

I set mine on the low side of the thickness spec and don't use dished plates and have never had any problems, getting hold of some 1.5mm plain plates gives more options when 'juggling' to the correct height.

Did you bleed your clutch line?

Ill bet you $2 that if you open the bleed screw it will drop down and push the rod back into the original position, ďloweringĒ your stack.
