Cool2 Ducati Clutch Removal Question

I'm replacing my stock ragged out clutch with a new Barnett setup. I need help with techniques to get the inner hub nut off!!! That nut is on there for eternity I swear. The book says it should be installed with 105 ft lbs. of torque, but I think it's on there with super glue. I've tried everything. Any ideas??

Ducati clutch hub.

The only easy way to get that nut off is to use a good 1\2" drive impact wrench. Hold the hub lightly with a rag protecting your hand and- BLASTO -the nut pops off.

Tried that. Maybe my impact wrench isn't strong enough. I also tried putting it in gear, stomping the rear brake and using a long torque wrench to try and budge it, didn't work. It's a hell of a thing.

Thanks guys. I finally got that 32mm nut off. It took a pissed off air gun and some ambition. Here are some pics of a clutch at 26,000 miles. I just installed a new Barnett basket and clutch pack, it sure is sweet now !!!

BUMP!
motomikedh:

How's that clutch holding up after two years and a week of use? I'm about to get a new clutch for my '94 e900 Elefant - do you think it was worth the extra cash?

Thanks!

You won't have any issues with the Barnett clutch basket. It has little "tabs" where the plates engage the basket to prevent the dimpling you see on your old one.

Good clutches!
