I’m looking for some input on a set of clutch plates and basket that works well with the Oberon slave cylinder without much fuss.

Hypermotard 2011 Evo SP 1100

Super appreciated.

Do you mind expanding on your situation? Are you having problems with your current setup? Or just have a worn out clutch? Every normal clutch set for a Ducati should work fine, so wondering if you are having troubles.

Sort of abandoned this thread as I was traveling for work. But thanks for your replies.

I am looking to replace what came from factory, bike already has 10k miles. I had to replace the slave cylinder some time ago and an Oberon unit was used. I understand that certain clutch sets will need some work to make it fit with aftermarket slaves, reason for my question. I'm trying to get something that can work with what I have.

Thanks again!

I'm not aware of issues with the slave cylinder and specific clutch parts. It should all work regardless as all the parts have to fit into the bikes spec. Where did you read/ hear that aftermarket slave cylinder would cause issues? I am currently using the 5 spring Ducabike slipper clutch kit with factory fibers/steels and the factory SC. I have an aftermarket to install, just havent done it as the factory quiit leaking finally... now that I've typed this it will surely start leaking again lol.

Are you looking to upgrade the OEM parts? I ask because unless there was some sort of misuse or abuse none of the clutch parts should need replacing at 10k miles. And I'm 99% sure the Olberon slave can work with any clutch basket/plates.

I was told at the dealer when I went to do the 7,500 scheduled service that my clutch plates and basket were close to expired. I really was shocked because I did not have any signs of a bad clutch, but he said I was close to being stranded. After that I rode my bike to 10ks, the clutch started to act up when taking off, in a strange way, it was not the typical, clutch is slipping/not grabbing symptom of a worn out clutch, but instead I heard chattering and bike would want to take off halfway through the friction zone in a jerky way. However, I would powerwheelie in first and second without any issues once the clutch was fully out? Very strange...

I decided to replace it anyways, I went with the recommendation here an EVR clutch and basket, that fixed all those issues. Maybe I should post pictures of my old clutch and basket for you guys to take a look at?

Thanks again for the reply. I am riding my hyper more and intend to post more.

Hard to go wrong with EVR clutch components. Your old clutch could have been very dirty with old friction material buildup, heat spots on the steels or warped plates.

Measure the old clutch pack thickness and see where it's at, curious to see photos of the old plates and basket too.
