Ok guys, got one more question since I am new to the whole dry clutch... When I am cruising around say in 3rd at 4K RPM no problem. But when I let off the throttle, and the RPM drops to aroudn 3K or so, i can hear the clutch plates start to rattle a bit. This happens alot as I slowly let go of the throttle setting up for a turn. Sometimes I get freaked out thinking I might stall it and pull in the clutch a tad.


Anyhow, is this normal ??? Do I need new springs for clutch pack ?

Yep, wait until you put on an open clutch cover :)
When you said you think it may stall is the bike lurching? If so consider a sprocket change. Up two in the rear or down one in front.

I was worried about the same thing, until I realized that it is a signature Ducati sound and learned to love it almost as much as I love the sound of the motor.

I work with a bunch of harley guys, and when i come puttin' into the parking lot. they are yelling "downshift dummy" or some such thing. I love it. Wait till someone tells you that the noise is a rod knock, thats the best. ;D ;D
