Any of you dry clutch kiddies heard of bevel drives? Moving to dry clutch is/was a relative recent change in Ducati (late 80/early 90) and didn't become wide spread in their offerings until mid 90's (the '93 750ss I raced had a wet clutch).

Kids these days /rolleyes

not sure - but I think you just proved my point and fluffed your ego at the same time
dry clutch and wet clutch are neither old school or newer...

While you're swapping the wet clutch for the dry clutch go ahead and put belts on in place of the chain for the cams so you can get back to the "old school" Ducati service intervals. Sometimes progress is good.

What's the life of a GP clutch? One race? Maybe not the best comparison for a street bike.
