My old 450RT use to spit ball bearings out of the exhaust pipe, but no gearbox problems.



Must be that silly dry clutch. Didn't CZs have a dry clutch too?



Hey, wait a minute, FIRST POST.

A friend of mine had his geabox go south on his FJR1300. He's very thankful he bought the extended warranty.



I had another friend lose his gearbox on his R1 and it was down forever waiting to get fixed.



My Duc tranny is fine so far.

Default Should have bought a Buell ;-)

What kind of operator error would even cause that kind of failure on a working tranny in so few miles?



I mean bending a shift fork from standing on the lever and being stuck in one gear... Sure.. But locking a tire is unheard of.



We all have abused trannys and know that this isn't from abuse.

Did they switch to a dry clutch for the 800s? I know the 750s have wet clutches. I'm not sure if they swapped when they bumped displacement.

somebody said this Duc has some kind of new screw-type slipper clutch. Could that do it? I s'pose it could...

Maybe he was doing the "Ducati Stomp"?

yeah, what else could explain a ducati mechanical problem except a suicidal rider?

my wife had an 02 900 that had a similar problem, but was unrelated to the transmission. she uses her rear brake in conjunction with her front. (she's an msf disciple) anyway the rear would lock after a time. turns out the pads never disengaged on the disc, expanded from the friction and locked things up back there. total rider error in my opinion.
