Lot's of things have to be changed and I also had to start to manufacture some parts.
So I have to check with STM, EVR and Suter. The OEM non-slipperly clutch's inner parts do not fit anymore (some guys in Bologna must have had smoke huge amounts of weed!).
oh man. if you say complicated then it will be impossible for me.

Naaahh. Just don't rely on Ducati's part lists on this topic.
I'll write down all steps and make a list of part numbers when I found a nice solution. I'll keep you posted. So far the only tough thing was to get the primary gear out from the crank shaft. Good tools help a lot
Thanks from Twistedracer

Had Friday off so decided to do a quick ride up to Santa Cruz mountain area and visited famous Alice for lunch (1st time there). Checked out the roads up there and it seem to be pretty nice. Still little construction from the rain and flood recently. Bit chilly still at lo 50s but at least sun was out.

So jealous. I've been to Alice's Restaurant a few time years ago. Stayed at my aunts in Hillsboro and took that twisty road south from there. Forgot the name of that road though. Met a couple of cool riders and joined them the next day at Sears Point for the bike races. Yeah that was years ago.

That's a steal.

I had an 848 before the Panigale. I would love to have another, even as just a track bike.

Food was pretty good as well. Little expensive but I guess that is normal in a tourist/mountain secluded area. No complaint.

Tail of the Dragon is the same. Its about an hour ride up there but I plan to go up there when temp gets warmer when I'm not at the track.

for sure. He is one of those close friend for almost 20 years. He hasn't ridden the bike for few years. When I borrowed it, it had 1700 miles on it and I put 300 miles on it before he decided to just sell it to me for nothing.

I tracked it once at Willowspring but planning to take it along with my Pani this year.
Thanks from Gecko and Twistedracer
