DooCaTee Clutch Fun!

You learn something new every day...The Cagiva/Ducati 650 Alazurras come with either wet or dry clutch engines. The wet clutch motors have tranny input shafts that are 10 mm shorter than the dry clutch input shafts. Here' s what happens when you replace the input shaft on a dry clutch motor (because the old one was hammered after 3 years of racing it) with a wet clutch input shaft that you just happen to have laying around. If you look closely, you will see that there is no way to bolt the clutch hub on because the shaft is too short! Luckily, Meester Bruce Meyers has run into this problem before and gave me the scoop on where I need to cut the clutch hub to make it work. Bruce to the rescue!
