Dry clutch spring

Anyone familiar with how to change the slipper spring on the dry clutch?

I changed my spring out to a heavier spring since I wanted some more engine braking. Just remove the 6 Allen bolts holding the red pressure plate in and pull it out, then using a 30mm socket, impact the center nut off and you can remove hardware until you get to the slipper spring, making note of the order everything comes off. Fyi, the stock spring is a 30kg and Ducati offers a 50 and 70kg spring offering more engine braking.

The stock clutch of the V4S is missing a bit of engine braking

It starts from CERO ENGINE BRAKING to - 3

And on track engine braking is a plus

I Ride: 2012 Ducati 1199 S Tricolore
I found myself getting faster when I set engine braking to a lower setting on all my bikes(don't know about v4). There is a tendency to overbrake for most people. At first it felt like I was entering turns too fast but after you realize that you can enter with some more speed you find yourself with faster times.

This is just my experience and of course people have different riding styles. So, not saying what is right or wrong! Also, don't know if the V4 naturally has no engine braking or the slipper slips excessively.

Just a thought.
