We are all such pros, we need a dry clutch to maximize!

In my 2c worth opinion, a dry clutch will allow oil not get contaminated as quickly.
Exactly why I would prefer a dry clutch, I believe this is behind me possibly toasting my 1299s motor!
Haven't split it yet but think the root cause is a degraded clutch which had contaminated the engine oil.

Well, first I believe that the factory friction disc material is organic which isn't a huge offender unless of course the friction plates have become so worn that they are now at the base material which is aluminum. Secondly, the wet setup has been fairly bulletproof. If you think you blew a motor because of a degraded clutch then my first point of contact would be my mechanic or service department (in my case, me) who let it get to the point where it became a problem. The wet clutch for the most part under normal riding conditions is a "set it and forget it" system. If like i stated earlier (and I see this regularly) the rider is hard on the clutch trying not to stall the bike, it may warrant more regular attention.

Apologies a little off topic I know!

1299s had done 11k very hard miles, upon inspect the plates are very worn and the basket is also shot. Approx 3k since last oil change.
The bike was running close to the rev limiter in 6th when the event occurred, no smoke and would still run but the engine had some degree of a mechanical rattle that appeared to come from front top of the motor!
Won't know until the motor is opened up but it locked while running at tick over after fresh plates/basket install.

In hindsight at the miles the bike has done the oil should have been changed sooner!

I'm happy that with a dry clutch a deterioration of a clutch pack won't contaminate the oil like what 'could' be possible with a wet clutch.
Obviously regular oil changes would reduce the chance of this!
