Hi guys ~~

My bike had clutch slip since yesterday~ and it is clearly getting worse~!!

starting from 1st to 4th gear ~ on hard accleration , clutch slips from

5000rpm to ~ 8000 rpm ~!! And when I slow down , clutch engages

again!

Here comes my questions ~!! Is this problem happening because of the

clutch plates like I said??? Also can it be fixed by "DIY" or would you

rather recommand have the Ducati dealer to service it ~!

Plus my bike has "BUCCI Slilpper Clutch" can this clutch system can use

any Clutch disks?? Or do I have to buy the one specifically for Bucci~

It looked like it had 12 tooth ~!!!

I attach a photo of my clutch ~ Please have a look n tell me if I actually

have a "Bucci slipper clutch" ~ there is no signs of logo on this thing ~!!!!

Thank you for your time ~!!!!

Yes, bad clutch plates would be a good reason for the clutch to slip. Happened to me when my I first bought my bike with 4200 miles.

Changing clutch plates is easy job ~ 30 mins. Not sure about your Bucci clutch pack compatibility. If you're not sure about the type of plates, just pull 'em out (remember the order you pulled em out), and post how many friction plates, metal plates you got in the pack. Someone here can tell you if its the same as stock plates. AFAIK surflex slipper uses different plates, and different pattern than stock, no clue about Bucci (honestly, never heard of that brand)

The clutch should last many, many more miles than this.

A clutch failure at 3,000 miles means either that it was setup improperly and/or tremendously abused.

Most likely setup improperly.

Your plates don't look very worn out, to me anyhoo.
Well the clutch pressure plate looks ok ~ but I am pretty sure there is

something wrong with the clutch disks ~!! I just dont have time till Thursday

I'll have to open it up to be sure ~!!!
