SOURCE: no pressure in the clutch lever
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.

Check your 2 stroke oil reservoir, got a feeling it's bone dry. If so your cylinder is scored and will need some machining, new piston and rings....Good luck to you friend...Tim

The kick shaft gear, idler gear, and clutch drum gear on the 1985 xr250 and below are smaller tooth gears than 1986 and newer. I have an 85 and an 88. I had to replace the 85 kick gears 3 times. The last time I replaced them I found that the larger gears on the 88 fit as long as you replace only the gears. The kick gear comes off the shaft and the larger tooth gear fits on the shaft. The larger idler gear fits where the smaller tooth idler was and the drum gear comes out and the larger tooth gear will fit there. Or the drum you have with the larger gear will now fit the other gears. This is a better solution than finding another drum with the smaller tooth gear because the smaller tooth gears will not last. I hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks Sam but i have got onto another clutch basket with the right gear on it. like your idea and will keep it in mind for future fixes, thanks mate."
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
To my understanding, an air leak would be anywhere before the carbs; the air box cover, the the 4 coupling rubber tubes or even the air filter itself. Although an air leak in any of these areas would not cause an intermittent high idle. Air leak here would cause a lean mix and/or a flat spot while accelerating.
On the other hand, a vacuum leak could cause high idle. Vacuum leak would be after the carbs and on any of the coupling to the intake ports of the engine or how they are fitted. In some versions, there are balancer nipples that have interconnecting rubber hoses and/or a vacuum line to the fuel cut-off valve that couls also have a hole or tear. It must be noted that the high idle because of a vacuum leak is consistent.
Intermittent high idle would often be mechanical or almost always on the throttle system. Common causes are:
