Ducati Slipper Clutches
Ducati clutches lead a difficult life. As one of the few components solely responsible for delivering the wave of torque and horsepower these Italian steeds are known for to a single rear wheel, it’s no wonder this is considered a “wear component.”
Since the Ducati marque’s earliest days, the brand’s superbikes have always used multiple-plate dry clutches. Our selection of Ducati slipper clutches includes replacement equipment for many popular Ducati sport and superbikes, as well as the clutch parts you’ll need to get the best response from your bike. Twelve-tooth and 48-tooth variants are available, as well as friction plates in standard and sintered steel for modified bikes making more power than the OE offering will handle.
Types of Ducati Slipper Clutches
The standard Ducati slipper clutch uses a dry format. While this part has become synonymous with the Ducati name, the brand is beginning to expand its horizons.The direct engagement offered by many Ducati slipper clutch systems requires a skilled hand to operate well, and in recent years, Ducati designers have started to recognize the benefits of a more forgiving system in their mid-level bikes such as the 848 Evo and Scrambler models. With a target audience likely to have the experience needed to operate a dry clutch system efficiently, a wet clutch in these models has allowed Ducati to reach more of its fan base with a usable product.
Our selection of Ducati slipper clutches includes wet clutch systems, allowing owners of these newer models to make the necessary replacements and ensure they can continue to enjoy their Ducati.
