why would it be interesting? DP makes the dry clutch conversion for the 848.

Hey guys, Thanks for all the welcomes. Im still waiting for the conversion to come in. A lot of people have asked me why the dry clutch and my main reason is im making this bike a strict track bike and wanted to have a clutch that can easily be maintained. I dont race and not a hardcore rider but I did want to buy something that is feasible and worth buying. The dry clutch conversion is only 1500 and it comes with a slipper. the slipper alone is about 800 bucks depending on who you go with so a few more hundred got the conversion. I love the wet clutch because it is quiet but I have found other threads that teach you how to quiet down the dry clutch which I plan to do. Once the parts come in, I'l update you more on the conversion.

@ HPzie, we are talking about this conversion that DP offers:

well for the 848, if you get the dry clutch it has a slipper in the package and with the stock clutch that we have now you have to purchase the slipper, 2 different entities. Ducati Performance has both options for the 848. Though if you go dry....i hope your left hand is ready!!! :angry:


Hey Flash848 I like your avatar pic. I want those forks so badly in that same color :dealer:

thanks, I think that there special order from Ohlins, which when that time comes I am going to get them!!! I just like to do things different from the common Duc owners if you know what I mean...which only a few have dry clutch 848's!!!

Im glad to be a newbie for the first time in my life.. I purchased my first Ducati yesterday.. Not even sure what it is, what year or anything.. I love it ...thats all I know.. Ive never had a big twin before.. 900 I guess.. The torque is awesome and the handling is great.. There are so many incredable things on it I dont know where to start.. Heim joints and hard seat cover arent what I expected.. I know alot of engineering went into this bad boy..I cant wait until I meet you guys... Looking foreward to the next meet.. Keep it rubber side down and your pistons out of the daylight.. peace...
