I Ride: 2013 Hypermotard 821
Gentlemen, I got the oil back in and was able to test and man, it's like a different bike now. For the first time I feel like I have actual confidence on this thing. As you all have said, the clutch now behaves like a normal clutch on any other bike. Shifting and leaving from a stop is effortless now.

Some things I have noted though are:
1) Very difficult to find neutral with the bike running. I can't remember if it was like this before or not.
2) Sometimes seems a little rough shifting up from first to second while moving. Strange since I shift from first to second while sitting still all the time without meaning to trying to find neutral haha.
3) Other shifts are almost imperceptible they're so smooth. I do find myself using my entire hand to pull the clutch in. May try to adjust the engage point out a little bit where fully disengaged is further from the grip. (One reason for this may be the cable I have. Seems to want to stretch a lot before I get any action on the clutch tab down low. I may replace this soon.)

Final thoughts,
I could not be happier with this install. Best $80 modification you could make to this bike. Great job and big kudos to bayotte and kuksul 08 for making this possible. Thanks guys!

Huh I do find the neutral thing interesting. I can't say I noticed the same thing. There is another cable adjuster about half way down the cable on the side.

That's awesome to hear ripyowrist, glad it all worked out in the end. I did notice some increased difficulty finding neutral, but it improved with time and correct clutch cable adjustment.

Yeah I used the lower cable adjuster and got it set to allow the manual specs for play before engagement at the lever. Idk though. Maybe the neutral thing is related to the oil? I used Castrol 5w-50 full synthetic. Maybe I will just have to learn to leave it in gear while its running haha.

Did you replace your clutch cable?

I didn't need to, it's holding up well so far.

Good deal. I'll see how she wears in. Only got about 20 miles on the clutch mod. Everything's kosher so far. Maybe some more reTARDs will weigh in with their results.

I Ride: anything I can get my hands on
Success!

Got out for a 75 mile ride yesterday. I have adjustable hand levers, and the clutch was set at the closest setting before, 1 out of 6. After getting the free play about right (didn't need to touch the mid-cable adjuster), I found that I had to go to setting 4 to get into neutral. This got better during the ride.

By the time I was back in town, the lever was at 2 and shifting seemed back to normal. It's still easier to find neutral from 2nd or while still rolling a bit (learned that on my Velocettes!) but I give it an A+. It's truly a whole different bike.

Now instead of worrying about clutch control, my new challenge is wheelie control!

Thanks again for this, Kuksul. I'd give this two smilies if the site would let me!

PS the correct sealant for the cover is ThreeBond # TB1215. The box even had the Ducati logo on it.

Jumped the gun and bought the retrofit kit before they're out of stock. Pretty excited to get this installed, unfortunately I won't be able to test it out until the spring with the bike tucked into hibernation. Good news is I have all winter to figure out the install.

Yeah only 6 left. He may get more if there is demand, but not until next year.

Zippy glad to hear it worked out for you. I really don't recall having to adjust my clutch at all, but then again I run the factory lever with factory clutch cable slack which is only 3mm, so I am always able to get a nice complete pull.

I'm glad this all worked out for you guys. I put a crap load of time into finding these parts and communicating which parts we needed, as did supplier. It eventually was less about profit for him and more about just following through with the project. Well worth it in the end

I Ride: was Monster soon Hyperstrada
So which assembly option seems to be the ticket. A? C seems like it might reduce wear on the aluminum hub. Thoughts. I will be doing the update over the Christmas break.
