Question about 2001 Ducati 996 S
Hi, I got a 748 last week. I pulled my clutch discs out to check them. They're ok. Put them back in, bolted on the pressure plate (which was flush with the discs) & now I have no pressure in the clutch lever. Notches are aligned. The clutch slave cylinder works fine. Everything works fine until I bolt the pressure plate on, then it doesn't move out when the lever is pulled in. Can you help?
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.

Being in proper adjustment ensures that your clutch is FULLY disengaging when you pull the lever and is fully engaging when you release the lever. This will make sure that it will not slip under acceleration or drag when the lever is in. It will also prolong the life of the clutch, making it last longer.
Also note, normally there is an adjustment at the clutch itself AND an adjustment of the cable to ensure proper free-play on the cable, this is for making sure there is no tension or pressure being applied to the clutch with the lever fully released.
Here is how you can fix your clutch:-
Drain the oil out of the 4-wheeler. This is done by unscrewing the drain plug under the engine. If you have a skid plate obstructing the plug, remove it first. Remove the clutch cover with a socket and ratchet. Inspect the gasket and replace if it is worn, cut or ripped.
Remove the pressure plate by loosening the bolts with a socket and ratchet. Loosen in a crisscross pattern so that the pressure plate comes off easily and won't bind. There are springs behind the bolts, so be careful not to loosen them. When removing the pressure plate be aware of the lifter behind it and make sure you don't lose it. Remove the friction plates from inside the clutch compartment. Remove the jutter springs and make a note of how they are positioned. This will make the reinstall process easier.
Reverse the steps to reinstall. When installing the bolts on the pressure plate and the clutch cover, consult your service manual for the right torque pressure.
