Yep sounds like that was the problem. So the clutch basket was probably binding against the engine case. I don't think that should cause any lasting issues.

Yep, mine floated freely as well. I was also skeptical that this was right, but I have a feeling the plate gets compressed fully once you get on the throttle due to the ramp mechanism. I can't really say for sure. In the static state, the clutch actually doesn't have much pressure on it because you have all those inner springs fighting the main clutch springs. That's how we have such an easy clutch lever pull.

I Ride: 2013 Hypermotard 821
Gentlemen, I think we have arrived at the solution.

I dry fit everything back together and was able to spin the back wheel freely with the clutch lever pulled in in sixth gear. The explanation for the thrust washer purpose/function/position makes good sense. I will clean the case and reapply sealant and add the oil later this week, and then hopefully I can test. Thanks for all the help kuksol08 and bayotte. You guys are awesome!

Got a quick test ride in, and the bike has been transformed. Still a bit reluctant to find neutral, but it got better. Thanks again for this, Kuksul.

Now she's waiting for her new fork seals. Looking forward to some great rides.

Awesome. Have you tried a super aggressive race launch yet? I was absolutely blown away at how hard I could launch it now. Just rev it, lean forward, let out the clutch smoothly, and whack the throttle.

Do installation instructions ship with the kit? Or where to find them? I'd love to take a look before ordering this kit (cheap one).

Absolutely, yes. Smooth as glass. What a difference, makes me think that someone in Ducati's engineering management made a big mistake.

Fork service next Tuesday, first thing in the morning. I've only got about 8 miles on the new clutch, will report when I get it back on the road.
