My clutch starting slipping around 19 T miles and at 20 T miles was very bad--tried to get Ducati to fix it but my dealer said he'd never heard on the problem and anyway it is a "wear" item. In other words--no warranty. Talked to some guy in Duc hdqtrs and he stated same. I told both of them that if their clutch can't stand a 79 year old man using it they have a big problem. Anyway I installed a Barrnete and it is great. A much more crisp feel and of course no slip. Probably be the last ducati I buy, not because of age cause I change bikes about every year. Just the poor deal I recieved from a "Premier " brand.Hey Minihuey, I've got just over 12,000 miles on my 2017 Cafe Racer, and I've had clutch slip issues from nearly the beginning of my ownership. You're not alone. They've only worsened over time - as to be expected. The dealer of course checked the cables and lever and said it was in spec. I'm surprised at how inferior the OEM clutch pack is. I've been riding 23 years and only ever replaced one clutch pack on a CBR that I used to use as a stunt bike. I have a GSXR1000 that I've used as a track bike and a tour bike, with 55,000 miles on it and NEVER had to replace the clutch.
Talking with the dealer they've said that the OEM clutch pack is actually the best option for performance, but I am very skeptical. Someone earlier posted a link to Barnett clutches, and I think I'll give them a try. The Barnett products will actually come in about 100$ cheaper than OEM from the dealer. I'll post pics and tips once I complete the swap.
