The dry clutch looks killer for sure but i'm pretty sure if the wet clutch gets the job for WSBK, anyone on this board should be OK with it. As far as servicing it goes, I can pull the clutch plates in 10 min (literally, clutch pack removed) on the wet set up without removing any bodywork or spilling one drop of oil (do it on the side stand)so the "ease of servicing" is a rather moot point. Since I built the bike from the ground up I went with the EVR and the billet basket but any clutch is good. As far as aesthetics and just plain "bad ass" are concerned, Gecko already owns that market. I wasn't even going to try. His stuff is awesome and i would trust his feedback on how things work. Im just being practical.
Not that I need to upgrade or anything, but is there a reason the stock slipper is not good enough?

I hear the reason to upgrade the slipper is the stock basket is weak and can crack if you beat on it. If you dont race or do track days i see no reason to change it.

That's the reason EVR gives to sell you the $1200.00 basket (it is pretty cool) but there are plenty of good racers here on this board who do pretty well with the stock setup and I'm not one of them. My lust for nifty parts and my fortunate financial situation far exceed my riding skills or my sanity when it comes to this crap.

Actually for the R and the 1299 the OEM basket has been re-inforced by Ducati. With the last SL recall the original 2014 basket was replaced by an R type one.

I guess gone are the days of those sexy magnesium engine cases for the clutch...

So, if you want to do a conversion, do it yourself.

IMHO sound and look is great, clutch feels more direct than the OEM wet clutch, slip is significantly less (installed Z40 Evo GP).

I did the work back in February this year. At least at that time support of STM was shit and the installation guide was a joke

The clutch itself is really high quality, has perfect finish and fitted without any modification. I just replaced most steel screws with Ti.

EDIT: forgot to mention that the engine tends even more to stall during start due to the reduced rotational mass of the clutch.
