st2cmack I believe you could use a like threaded screw about 3 inches long or so (one for each hole, obv.). It just needs to finger tighten and seat against the clutch pack and then be long enough to fully relax the pressure of the springs inside the basket as you back it out. I found that the threaded rod I had was huge overkill. Nothing is going to "fly out" so long as you have a few inches of thread to use to relax the springs before the little yoke top piece comes all the way clear of the springs.

Just another opinion.

Yeah it was a challenge to find them! Ducati actually sells a specialized tool, but it's a rip off in my opinion.

haha you're right bayotte, I'm envisioning: "Ducati clutch release fastener $49.95"

those wily Italian jokers, making beautiful bikes we can't resist, meanwhile they're laughing all the way to the bank

I ordered mine from McMaster Carr. Just 1 foot of threaded rod with a box of nuts. It came to like $8 or so, plus shipping and tax.

I Ride: anything I can get my hands on
I had to buy a meter of the rod at our local McFadden-Dale, still cost less than ten bucks with extra nuts and washers.

Hope I don't have to use them again soon...

Is this how everyone's clutch kit came? With the friction disc packaged with the metal disc, judder spring and spring spacers? My friction disc is all chewed up. This can't be right. Notice all the speck of friction material in the bottom of the bag as well as the friction disc its self pads chewed up. What now? I'm not happy.

That's normal. The way they make that plate is they take a regular friction plate and remove the inside diameter using a lathe, hence why it's called a "turned friction plate". So the edge of the pads gets chewed up as the cutting tool chips away at it.

I was a little skeptical at first but it makes sense. The factory confirmed that this was the case. What I did is wipe off the loose fibers and installed it.

I will say I don't think mine was quite as rough. Maybe half as much or so. It's possible yours got jostled around in shipping and broke more fibers loose?
