Question about 2001 Ducati 750 SS i.e. N-C
Bike sat in weather for over 6 years. Cleaned Carbs, then took out for test ride...engine runs great but, clutch slips bad (not: did not change oil), inspected clutch. Every thing is 100% new specs. The friction plates have minor shine as do metal plates. no worp no discolor nothing. I was thinking of roughing up the shine on all parts. My major thought is that the Slave on the clutch may not be releasing pressure. Any input would be great. Also over 6 years ago the clutch worked fine.
Six yrs, is a long time. You really should change the oil. Oil also breaks down like gasoline does. Wet clutches require an oil containing certan sdditives. Old or regular motor oil is not well tolerated. Make sure you have free play on the clutch lever., about 1/8 in. - good luck- Ned
