I haven't done it myself (yet) but I've seen a couple of tutorias for a Panigale and seems relatively simple. Here's a link with the Panigale installation which has a similar pressure plate and one with a 796 that has a similar housing. Combine both of them and you should be fine.

Yeah..
I saw the video for the Monster 821 conversion..
Was just wondering if its easier with the 1200 since it already has hydraulic clutch.

Yes, it should be like the Panigale, drain the oil, remove the cover and the pressure plate, replace both, tighten everything up and refil. Almost plug and play.

It's totally different than the Panigale. It is a lot more extensive work as you have to take off the whole assembly instead of just the clutch part. Took me the whole day to do it but doable.

Here is is on a red 1200. The install is not bad at all, just take your time and make sure you identify the bolts that hold the clutch cover on as there are several different lengths. I made a template with the new cover and put each bolt in the appropriate hole. The only issue I had was when trying to get the new cover on, there is a small tab on the cover (see red arrow in picture below) that kept hitting the front cylinder belt cover as I tried to put the cover into position. I ended removing the screws to the front belt cover and moving it out of the way enough to slide the clutch cover on. I suggest you try positioning the clutch cover onto the motor prior to applying the sealant to make sure things are out of the way. Then when you apply the sealant, you can place the clutch cover straight onto the proper place and not make a mess out of your sealant bead.

One other thing I notice and honestly did not anticipate (I also had no instructions from DucaBike as I bought my cover used from another member on this site) was that you will need more oil to fill the case to the proper level with this clutch cover. The internal volume of this cover is greater than the OEM so plan ahead.

It's a great mod and adds some flash to any bike. I get lots of compliments on every ride.

Nothing much to add... except I like mine. I bought the bike with it already installed, so I can't comment on installation.
