Drum basket springs rubbers and so on, including the control rod because it had broken. The Clutch lever however operated fine with a nice smooth action before changing the clutch, but now the lever only moves about 10mm before becoming rock solid, making it impossible to disengage the engine. I have removed the clutch slave from the bike for inspection but it remains solid which I think indicates that the piston is stuck. The slave cylinder was hanging free from the bike for a few weeks, I do not know if this is significant. My questions are: What is wrong? How can I fix it? Bike: 996 European Biposto Year: 2000 Many thanks,having the slave hanging shouldn't be the problem. The only only thing I can think of is, when you replaced the rod did you get the correct one? I can't remember off-hand right now, but I know that the clutch rod came in different lenghts. I just can't remember if the 2000 and earlier were the longer ones or vise-versa. I'm sure some one here will know that one. I could be wrong about this is the problem, but it's my guess.,,,

clutch plates need replacing , I would replace the steels as well and also change the oil and filter as it will be polluted with clutch dust.
Would also help to flush clutch fluid as well.

Clutch problems ,,Leaver will not operate clutch it will not pull in all the way ...has fluid... checked slave cyl it was stuck cleaned it freed up bleed system and was stiff again and will not operate...


Did you take apart and clean the master cylinder. There is a large hole in the reservoir that feeds the fluid to the piston. But there is also a tiny pin hole that allows the dot fluid to return to the reservoir. If this is plugged on brakes it will lock the front wheel. On a clutch it might be what is locking the slave cylinder.If you pull the lever and the clutch does not engage you have air in the line. If you pull the lever and the clutch engages but does not disengage till you open the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder , the pin hole (fluid return hole) in the master cylinder is plugged. Take the master apart and clean it. You can pull the rubber cap that protects the piston out of the master and remove the piston with a circlip pliers. Honda sells a master cylinder rebuild kit and clutch slave o-ring seals if you need them.

Fitting Ducati 748 clutch slave cylinder to square case 900 1978


hi,not up to speed on your bike, but if the reservoir is empty then you have a leak,check master cylinder and work your way down to the slave cylinder for anything obvious,it mite be very slight leak but over a long period of time it will empty the reservoir,i know mine does(748)albeit very slowly,clutch slave cylinder is a favourite place for leak as it gets quite warm down there,wouldnt have thought you will need a new clutch
unless it slipping
hope this helps

No pressure in the clutch lever


Hi Koorong,
It seems you may have refitted it incorrectly the system,especially the springs !, the round ones or the center inside clutch lifter pin which whn operated does not push to lift the pressure ring.
I am not tht experinced withthe duccati but i guess the clutch systems works on the same principles.

Clutch Problems


slave cylinder and line were replaced at a local dealership. Last year prior to the repair the clutch wouldn't disengage once the clutch had warmed up. It was working fine after the repair. Now along with the new problems there is a whining sound at every speed that I travel at. The sound had never been there before. During operation after the bike is moving the bike operates normally no slipping in the clutch no hesitation, operates as normal just doesn't sound normal. I'm thinking about replacing the clutch pack, basket, throwout bearing, and pressure plate bolts, but will all that really solve the problem. Especially since I don't really know whats going on. Sorry for the wordiness but any help would be appreciated,I had a similar symptom after installing a new Barnett clutch pack. The clutch worked fine when fully engaged, finding neutral was fine, etc. However, everynow and then, when taking off from a stop in first, the engagement point would change from the middle of the lever range to the end of the lever range. The first time it happened it caught me out and I almost fell over while trying to take off from an uphill stop and turn. Anyway, I took the clutch pack out, cleaned the friction plates with contact cleaner, cleaned the drive plates with a Scotchbrite pad, and put it back together. The problem has not reoccurred since.,,,
