Does anyone know what the EVR special springs kit for clutch basket panigale V2 are? The part # is on page 6 of the price list https://www.edovignaracing.com/en/price-catalog-edovignaracing.pdf

Im replacing my OEM slipper clutch with the EVR CTS wet slipper clutch and was debating on whether to upgrade to the new upgraded EVR clutch basket with steel inserts. You can buy it as a whole new clutch basket with new gear part # CDU-WET-Z12-IB. Or send in your old clutch basket and EVR will remove your stock gear from your old clutch basket and install the new style clutch basket with steel inserts part # CDU-WET-Z12-IA. But what are the special spring kit for the clutch basket as an additional option part number CDU-WET-MOL? Are those the springs that would go into the EVR cts clutch? Or is something totally different? Im not saying Im changing my clutch basket but I wanted to know what those special springs were. Scroll down to page six https://www.edovignaracing.com/en/price-catalog-edovignaracing.pdf

My answer is less helpful than my thumbs up.

Wish a Ducati insider / master mechanic, as passionate as you would jump on these forums and answer these deep questions

Hahah if I knew the answer I wouldnt have posted it. I googled it in every variation I could think of and the only thing that pops up are the springs that go into the evr cts wet slipper clutch. I emailed EVR to explain it to me. Im just debating whether to buy the new clutch basket with steel plate reinforcement and brand new gear. Or send my clutch basket out and have the new style clutch basket installed onto my stock oem gear.

Yea whatever happened to the resident master mechanic who joined? Oh well. The EVR basket comes in a couple of different configurations. They are mechanically interchangeable. The six springs in the basket are retained by the drive gear which is retained by 3 steel rivets. The drive gear themselves are stock to the OEM basket. The springs in the EVR basket are from what I was told are of a higher compression value. This is what I believe EVR is referring to by "special springs". I have not verified whether the springs are actually of a different value than the stock springs. As you stated there is a machining process to retrofit of the steel anti-wear pieces which requires you to send in the basket. This, in my opinion, is absolutely not necessary for anything but a competitive bike at a very high level and even then, not needed. I have a 4-year-old EVR basket with more than 10K miles and the compression height of the basket springs are where they should be and the spring pockets have no noticeable wear. I also have a very used EVR sbk Corse basket and the non-reinforced spring pockets are excellent (see photo) As a side note, the Corse EVR setup uses 12 friction plates and 11 steel plates as opposed to the 11 friction and 10 steel on the standard EVR wet application. Clutch pack height is the same at 51mm (I think) however the Corse plates are thinner. The EVR Corse pack also has multiple anti chatter rings in the stack.4966 is a stock 99 basket. 4967 EVR corse. No idea what the six unused holes in the basket are for.

After how many miles would you recommend a wet clutch renew? 650ib’s dry clutch was toast at like 4K miles

That question obviously has a lot of variables. If you are so inclined, it is easy to pull the cover and use depth gauge on a set of calipers to measure the stack height with the clutch pack in the bike. If it's in spec, you are theoretically good to go. You could still have a burned plate or a friction disc that has worn abnormally which would potentially warrant a fix even though the stack height is in spec. Also, a warped or non-parallel steel plate can give an erroneous measurement

Thanks for the feedback on this. Regarding sending in a oem clutch basket to get machined with steel inserts is not what they do as explained to me. You send them your clutch basket with gear still attached. And you have the option of buying their old style clutch basket without the steel inserts or buy their new clutch basket with the steel inserts. And then they put your oem gear onto the clutch basket you chose. Unless I misunderstood the email from them. And they install the old style clutch basket onto your oem gear. And if you choose their new style clutch basket they machine the steel inserts into the clutch basket then put your old gear onto their clutch basket

Ok thanks for the clarification so you are basically supplying the drive gear and you pick which version of the carrier you want as opposed to just buying the complete unit (carrier and drive plate)
