Warranty work on clutch, 7500 mile service

Finally, after having returned to the dealership 4x with air in the clutch fluid, they warrantied the assembly, and the bike is ready to retrieve. Hopefully when the sun comes up, the roads are clear today and I can go get my bike back. Been at the dealership for nearly a month now.

Also had the 7500 mile service, and per the writeup, the valves did not need adjustment, though the timing belts did.

Anybody know whether the air filter is replaced at this interval?

It would have been worth checking/cleaning the air ducts and airbox at this stage, as many don't seal all that well at the ends of the element and where the airtubes bolt on to the side of the airbox.
This problem seems to be worse with the DP kit filter, but the element should at least have been inspected and cleaned as part of the major service.
A lot of insects and debris can make their way through the mesh at the front of the system, which is much more coarse than on the 916-998 series.

What was the problem with the clutch continually getting air?

I don't know. They say they replaced the slave cylinder. That's all I know.

I have the same problem, I have the performance Ducati clutch slave. The dealer is going to replace it tomorrow. Apparently they know about this issue.

Well, it sounds like they aren't fixing the root cause, only symptoms. The clutch push rod runs through the clutch shaft and has a bearing at the pressure plate end. The bearing cup that the rod sits in has a hole in the center that allows crap to get into the bearing cup and the bearing.

The bearing doesn't seize up immediately (but can if not cleaned/lubed eventually), but will have enough drag to spin the clutch rod a bit with every clutch pull. The slave cylinder doesn't have a bearing, so the rod spins right against the piston and creates heat that can boil the fluid, damage the seal and otherwise cause clutch release problems. In any case, don't sit at idle with the clutch in any more than necessary to start/stop. Slip the trans into neutral and release the clutch.

If the shop is simply swapping the slave without pulling, cleaning, and lubing the rod and the pressure plate bearing/cup, then the new slave will likely fail sooner than the previous.
