After selling my hyper I still have my adige clutch kit leftover in the garage. Anyone here still in need of one? I'll let it go for cheap.

I Ride: 2013 White Strada
For the brave Stradista's that have attempted this fix:
- When I was refitting the case, I noticed the spring assisted clutch release arm wasn't seated properly when I first mated the cases. Quickly realized this and jiggered it until it was seated and operating correctly...or so I thought.

I've been putting her back together and replaced the clutch cable. I was attaching the clutch cable to the actuator arm and noticed it might not disengage the clutch fully the way it was seated. Started messing with it and have 2 potential issues:
1. If I twist hard enough, it will break the spring tension and do full rotations. It will catch again, but the position of the arm shifts slightly each time.
2. About 1/2" of play vertically in the arm. I can pull it up but it does take some force.

Already put oil in it and really hope I don't have to crack the case again. Any help appreciated in advance.

The clutch arm is normal to have a tiny bit of vertical play, but certainly not 1/2". I think something is not connected properly, and would not start the engine until you have that sorted.

I don't have my hyper any more to compare to but I can try to provide some input. Just think, if it takes you an extra hour or two to pop the cover and make sure it's still good inside it is much better than trying to run it and causing damage in some way.

So I have had this kit for a while, and now just getting to installing it. I have found I lost the washers that came with the kit. anyone know the dimensions of the washers?

It has been said that the washer/spring spacers are not totally needed and just an option. A few pages back(might have been a different pist) I asked that too and the general consensus was that they weren't "needed".

Awesome, Thanks for the Info. Looks like i'll be putting it back together today I bought this bike new, was my first road bike. The clutch has always been my biggest gripe. I didn't realize how bad it was until I got a Husqvarna 701 enduro that has an amazing clutch. Now I realize why all my friends would always stall. I love this bike and only wish i got the SP version.

Fired her up last night.
The Good: No leaks and new Denso starter is very strong.
The Bad: Clutch engagement arm is definitely not installed correctly. It chattered and I could feel an unhealthy vibe coming through it. Clutch cable was not attached. Only ran it for a minute and don't think it did any damage. Didn't try selecting gears for obvious reasons. Probably has about 3/8" of vertical travel. If I turn the arm by hand, it will build spring tension until about 270 deg of rotation and then pop the tension and reset.

Anyone have insight on re-installation of this mechanism? Like I stated before, I noticed it wasn't catching properly before sealing it and did my best at aligning it.

If someone has the shop manual slides of this assembly or re-installation, much appreciated. I don't want to crack the case again unless I'm confident I can fix it.

Will these help? Did you put the Pacers back in the right spot? Some motor sport motors I have built have had bushings on the gear spindle where it inserts into the case. I dont see them in these pics but it doesnt mean they arent there.

Just purchased a, new to me, 2014 Strada with 1,250 miles. And stumbled across this thread while investigating the clutch issues

What is the general long term consensus after performing this mod? Worth it? Stay away? Convert to hydraulic instead?

Although, I do see that I'm a little late to the party with the orders and the current eBay listed has expired. If this is a worthwhile project, anyone know where I can get the parts? From what I read, and the low miles on my current clutch, I don't need an entire new clutch pack, just the "fix"
