Whoever told you this does not understand the principles of hydraulics.


Agreed. Sealed system if it is in fact sealed without problems is a sealed system

lol, and it's not always air in the system. Sometimes it just plain sucks! Just ask the Multistrada guys.

My output shaft seal is leaking again! It lasted 1 week and 400 kilometers..... The clutch lever is changed by a recall, but it went soft again...

Is that a superbike or a supershit??

on the second time replacing this seal my worry would be - what is causing these seals to give up the oil? imperfection on case ? bearing ? bent OPS ?

this sucks sorry for your troubles

Remove the seal . Check the shaft is centered in the casing hole. Check the shaft is smooth and clear of burs or scratches etc.
New seal.
Really shouldn’t leak then.

There might be a service bulletin to fix this issue. Redesigned parts should be installed.

As a few others have said, Ducati fixed it just to find it leaking again. I agree Ducati should have a bulletin and fix it, but I’m just of the attitude of fixing it quickly and properly by myself and not have to hassle taking it in to have some dimwit mechanic do it with little attention or thought.

FWIW, there are a few good mechanics around, but the majority I have had work on my bike have left a bitter taste.
Maybe u have better luck.

Ah, the pride of Italian ownership. Its suppose to leak fluids. That's how you know there's fluid still in it. Paper towels and more of what's leaking. Problem solved
