I wiped the oil off with a towel and stuck them in. Shifting is definitely something you can feel but overall I'm very impressed. I will try to keep you up to date but for me I've heard nothing but good things about them. With that being said I did read the reviews on amazon and one said great things the other said it didn't fit his bike and gave it a one star. I guess he wasn't smart enough to order the right set for his bike.

I have an 02' ST2 I purchased new with 18.5K on the clock. This is my second duck and at my age I would like to sell. Prospective owners, (most do not know what a Ducati is), run away when you start it up. Reading through the posts, I see where the clearance between the driven plate and the clutch basket is 0.023 inches. I just checked mine during the winter maintenance and I get a consistent 0.034 inches. The plate dogs and the basket surfaces do not show damage to account for the increased clearance. I do not think the clutch is any more loud than it was when new. Is it possible there was a manufacturing variance to cause the difference in the factory spec? QUESTION? has anyone ever considered forming an alloy insert into both sides of the clutch basket to tighten things up? I am an engineer and a decent fabricator and am working on a die to press some out of stainless shim stock. Is there a minimum clearance between the basket and drive plates? Is there a measurement of the width of the drive plates and maybe this is the reason for the noise?

Thanks in advance...

The Barnett clutch baskets have inserts - Ducati Clutch Baskets

Measure the basket diameters to see if the fingers have spread – this could be the reason for your excessive clearance. Note that in the Barnett basket picture posted by Aussie_Bob that the fingers are reinforced by a metal ring to prevent this distortion.

The clearance between the plate tabs and basket can be close to zero as long as the plates move freely in-and-out. Some aftermarket plate tabs need to be filed to get enough clearance to allow the plates to move freely.
