2013-2014 Clutch Retrofit Kit Interest List!!!

Hi everyone,

I have some good news . I have been working with a supplier to provide an upgrade kit for the clutch on 2013 and 2014 Hypermotard and Hyperstrada bikes.

There will be two kits offered:
Option 1. A 4 piece anti-judder kit like what is found in the 2015+ model year, for $79 shipped. This includes a special spring, spacer, backing plate, and narrow friction plate that you could install into your existing clutch.
Option 2. A complete clutch pack including anti-judder components like what is found in the 2015+ model year, for $199 shipped.

These are the highest quality Italian components from a major parts dealer that I will post up later...

As for timing - that is still up in the air. It all depends on how many people are interested. If we have enough people, we could be looking at 4-5 weeks, but if only a few are interested it could be months away.

Please post up if you are interested, and include which above option you would prefer. Thanks!!

I think I'll be in for #2. Thanks for doing the leg work on this.

Edited to line up with my later post.

Kuk,

Will Option 1 make the existing clutch handle like Option 2? I only have 12K on my existing clutch and that's not excessive.

Yes, it should. I myself would go for Option 1 because my clutches usually last forever and I am guessing my original clutch is still good. However, some may argue that if you're going through the hassle of taking it apart, you might as well replace everything. I don't know if you'd be able to feel any difference, unless there is another factor at play that we don't know about yet.

Either way, both options are a massive savings over the part straight from Duc.

Here, here.

My clutch has a bit over 9,000 miles and I suspect it's the original (bought used with ~6,000 miles) so I don't have a problem getting the whole clutch for $199.

However, it seems like option 1 is in the lead and I have no problem with that either, since the clutch is still not slipping. I'll go with the majority.

That is to say, Option 1 [or Option 2].

That's awesome new guys, hope this works out! I would suggest option 2, solely for the purpose of ensuring that the clutch stack height is correct.

Right on. It sounds like you'd prefer #2 if timing is not a factor.

The stackup should stay within the spec since we'd be swapping out two parts that equal 4.3mm for four parts that equal 5mm. You have a point though - as Option 2 parts will emulate a 2015 kit exactly and you'd have all new parts in there.
