Ducati 1098 clutch not fully disengaging

1098 clutch not fully disengaging... I can up shift fine however when I go to downshift I literally have to stomp on it six or seven times for it to drop into gear... if I have the bike off and pull the clutch in while it's in gear it is very very hard to move any ideas on what this could be?

The most common cause is air in the system. Bleed the air out and all will be well again.

The second most common cause is that the owner has installed an aftermarket slave cylinder that has a diameter that is too big. This prevents the slave from moving the pushrod enough to cause complete separation of the clutch plates.

That makes since... And I've tried to adjust the pushrod on the cylinder but it's froze up and stripped out

The push rod can not strip out. It is just a 12 inch rod that presses on the clutch disc on release it. It sounds like you have air in the system. I use a 30 mm slave cylinder without any problems. Do you have an open clutch cover? You can always check to see if the clutch springs are tight. I had one come loose and the clutch would slip and was hard to get into gear.
