The 959 engine is actually identical to the 899 engine except it's stroked to make 955cc.

It is a larger version of the engine 899, brought to 955 cc thanks to a stroke lengthened to 60.8 mm, while maintaining the 100 mm bore . Refreshed also the crankshaft, the connecting rods and pistons; unlike the 899 it is used two injectors per cylinder.
Both 899 and 959 clutch casing is one piece where as the 1199/1299 is a two piece magnesium. You would need to buy a 1199/1299 clutch case to fit this Ducabike cover.

Price of parts & coversion

Magnesium Clutch Cover $578.70
Ducabike Clear Cover $343.90

If you want to be sure just contact Claudio at Ducabike. Just be patient his english a little broken since his mother tongue is Italian.

Yeah, mine is 2pc too. Don't forget the 959 has the slipper clutch too. Maybe Ducati got smart and just did the same style case as the big boys.

Help with install on 959 ?

Im not sure if this is the right forum, however as title I am installing the ducabike clutch cover along with the pressure plate and spring retainer.

I took off the old cover, pulled out the pressure plate and springs, replaced with the ducabike parts now my bike stalls when put into gear.....

Im guessing I installed the internal parts incorrect, however at this point I do not know what "correct" is. I do not see any alignment marks on the new pressure plate, nor on the clutch housing or basket as some have suggested there should be. The OEM pressure plate has 2 sharpie marks on it, and I guess they could be the alignment marks, but aligned to what??? there are no marks on the housing.....

The clutch lever is much harder to pull now as well..... Does this mean I need to bleed the clutch line?


Any help would be much appreciated..!!!

summary,

I F'd up the clutch with the new parts install leading to:
Hard pull on clutch lever,
stalls when put in gear
how do I ensure proper alignment with no marks....
Will the lever pull go back to normal if the parts are installed correct?
Torque setting on springs?


Please HELP!

One of the upgrades of the 959 is the added mass of the 1299 cover for increased sound dampening or something of that nature.

You're right Kevin H. The clutch is louder now than before. You can hear it spinning, in a good way though, not in a going bad bearings type of way...lol

Cool. Whatever gets your rocks off boss.

I always thought they looked sweet if not a touch ricey. I'd get one but they leak too often.

Iv'e got a 959 sitting in my garage with a Red Ducabike clutch cover on it!

It bolts right onto the 959. No conversion needed.

I love it, really makes the bike stand out. (more so than normal :p)

I realized that I did not seat the pressure plate properly. I paid a little more attention to the alignment and all of of a sudden the plate sucked right in and the lever pull was back to normal and all systems were a go! Looks sweet, doesn't leak, doesn't fog but it does add a little noise since the dampening effect has been removed with the OEM cover.

Here is the cover installed. I would show a movie but I only have .MOV files and Im not savvy enough to convert for the site....
Beautiful matching combo — hand-in-hand with the red wheels! I don't have the Arctic White Silk and ended up going with the cover in black and the spring retailer in red, which is probably the most typical set spotted by those familiar with the "oilquarium" (as Phil and BellissiMoto call it). I see you also went with the pressure plate in contrasting black... quite pleasant! What made you add that to the bundle? Didn't like the stock plate's metallic look?

The 959 shares the 2pc cover design like the 1199/1299. It also uses the frame sliders the 1199/1299's do because the sliders bolt on to the clutch cover. Whether or not the clutch cover is magnesium or just an aluminum look alike is up to debate.
