But in that post they were talking about the Oberon clutch slave, which has a different design to fit a little pin thats horizontally on the push rod. The push rod in the Ducabike kit doesnt have this pin, and all Ducabike clutch slaves are compatible. AF01 / AF02 / AF03. You can get the hydraulic kit with or without the master brake cylinder.
I contacted Ducabike because I was worried, but they told me it will be compatible and gave me a list of part # needed for the install.
Sweet. Recommend you start a new thread with part #'s, progress and DIY instructions if do the work yourself. I'm on the fence about the clear clutch mod, but if I did it, would definitely do full hyd clutch too. I've grown so accustomed to the stock clutch that it's not often I'm reminded how bad it is. Funny thing is, I've only stalled this bike maybe 5 times over 5 years. Probably because I work so hard on a clean launch.

Did you do the full clear clutch cover install Casso? With the hydraulic clutch kit? Or did you use the mechanical clutch slave?

I notice it did get better though after about 7-8000kms when the bike was broken in a little. I get mis shifts all the time. Mostly between 5-6 gear. And generally shifting is just feels rough. I was about to order the anit-judder kit mentioned here when my friend thrashed his monster 821 and sold me his Ducabike clear clutch cover for cheap. He told me his clutch was having all the same issues unitil after he installed the clear clutch cover, pressure plate, and the hydraulic clutch kit all issues were solved. Ive been researching about the parts needed to install it and decided just to convert my whole clutch system to hydraulic. Ducabike has a kit for this with the clutch master cylinder/lever included, but I will be purchasing the kit without it and buying a Brembo RCS14 master. Its on the way and I will let you guys know how the clutch feels after the conversion.
If you can't find neutral then your clutch cable isn't adjusted properly. Set the lever adjuster around middle adjustment, adjust lever play at the secondary adjuster, return to lever adjuster for fine tuning. Neutral should be easy to find. In fact, that's how I gauge if my final cable adjustment is correct. Stock clutch.

Bought my Hyper 821 just last week, and having the first gen already in the stable and modded out, I couldn't live with the grabby clutch so added the 4 pieces from the eBay anti shudder kit this weekend. I ran into a big problem not discussed in detail on this thread where the spacer between the clutch basket and clutch pack was binding and causing my clutch pack to stick out an extra 1/8-1/4". After I sealed the clutch cover and installed everything back, I noticed that my clutch lever wouldn't disengage the clutch. I had to remove my cover again and it took me a while to figure out why my 32m nut was not sitting at least flush with its bolt. I finally shoved the clutch pack in right after messing around with it and that spacer was the issue. Then when I started the bike after testing that the clutch was engaging - it was super hard to shift, like the clutch plates were jammed or something, and I couldn't move the lever to neutral unless the motor was turned off. Turns out the cable as discussed in this thread needed to be adjusted and that solved the hard shifting and neutral problems. 821 runs like a champ now (fingers crossed) and shifts easier than my old Honda sportbikes. WTF was Ducati thinking and I can't believe the previous owner rode it like this for 11k miles. It nearly threw me off and I almost dumped it on my test ride like week. (I've been riding for 20 years and this is my 4th Duck) Now my first gen has some pretty stiff competition. I want to thank the OP and all contributors to solving this issue, now lets see what a new exhaust will do.

*Also, want to add that using clamps to compress the clutch pack worked a lot better for than trying to wrench a 3mm nut.

Great to hear.

Agreed there are a few weird things about the upgrade but people seem to have figured it out well enough and we have a lot more happy riders out there now I upgraded mine just in time to sell it. Such a shame, but those were a great 3-4 rides!

Glad thing worked out, sucks that you had to take the cover off twice though! I agree, ducati dropped the ball big time. My bike also had 15k on it, feel bad for the previous owner who never got to experience the bike with a well-functioning clutch!

Elementary question!

New owner of a 2013 821 here, and I've already done the Boosterplug mod and have the Adige clutch-anti-judder kit in hand. Despite looking at various diagrams, I'm unclear about how far I need to go into the clutch to fit the extra bits. Should I need to undo the big 32mm nut? It looks to me as though the extra bits fit just below the outer section, but since this is not a conventional Ducati dry clutch, I think I have a lot to learn!

I dont remember having to remove the center nut. You need to thread the tiny threaded rod into the small holes, back out the clutch springs, remove the needed plates then reinstall it all
