I have a 2000 748 that I'm tring to convert to the new slave (749). I was told that I could use my standard pushrod with this conversion, but I had to add an 8mm ball to get the length correct. Well, I tried that and I still have no clutch (I can't pull the clutch lever in at all, it's like the piston is out in the slave and is not being pushed in by the rod). I recently put a JTR slipper clutch in, but I don't think this is the problem???
I was told that a 749 pushrod (13.5") would solve my problem, but I wanted to be sure. Also, if I get that 749 pushrod do I then take the 8mm ball out? Any info would be great as I'm getting pretty frustrated (two ducati shops haven't been able to help, in fact one of them told me that the 749 clutch was belt driven??). Thanks in advanced!!
