Ducati 1199 loose clutch after installing ducabike clear clutch :(
 
Hello, I recently installed a ducabike pressure plate ring & clear clutch cover. I noticed my clutch is loose.
Did not get a ducabike pressure plate
Can anyone give me detailed advice how to fix??
Thanks guys

Did you tighten the 3 screws all the way down?

Yep. Trying to figure out whats the issue.
Would I need to touch the Clutch plates set?

Don't mess with the clutch plates. Just make sure everything is aligned ok and check them bolts.

hmm
 
Bolts are fastened but also not too tight. I turned the bike on & bike sounds okay. The only issue is the clutch being non existent. I tried this (
)
seem to drain my clutch fluid. Still loose, should I flush & bleed the clutch?

Yeah if you have no fluid in the reservoir/master that will definitely be the problem.

The biggest thing is to make sure the pressure plate is seated properly (if you are able to pull in your clutch lever then its seated correctly). The only way your clutch should feel "loose" would be if the springs are messed up somehow or you didnt tighten the retainer (the 3 screws) tight enough...10-12 nm....here is a detailed video I did of the install....I have done a bunch now and decided to do a bit more detailed video that skips zero steps....its a horrible video as far audio and editing, but shows every single step in detail.
