All Panigales as well as the new Monsters, Multis and the Diavels have a slipper clutch from factory. It's needed, otherwise riding would be terribly unconfortable. But these OEM Ducati clutches have an utterly different design and therefor work in a different way. High performance clutches (also dry clutches in MotoGP and Moto2) all have some sort of hardened ball ramps whereas the original clutch works with two slopes: one for freeing the clutch for backslipping, and one for completely closing it for full traction (super clever cost optimized design that has proved to work for a couple of years now).
Clutches like STM or Suter use spring force to close the clutch (both dry and wet) and the force required for backslipping is massively reduced and harmonized because of the reduced friction required by the hardenend steel balls on a ramp instead of two slopes rubbing agains each other.

Please correct me if i'm wrong or missed something, I'm really not a clutch scientist.

The 899 has a standard clutch.

Maybe they let me bring two bikes (or three), but I don't think so.
Oilquarium: just wait, there are other projects pending
BTW: I have your oil plug and clutch pressure ring, I'll bring it to the track and we will install it there...
I see, I see. The work is never finished!
Great, let's mount everything at the track. I hope they'll let me pass at the tech check. My oli plug and drain screw are still not secured. Delivered my Duc today and the whole staff team insisted that I should secure everything, otherwise I would not pass the tech approval. Let's hope for the best (or some last minute late night bike work)
