Hell yes there's an improvement!

It'll make your clutch lever action so light because the piston is oversized(30mm), you could you use only your pinky to pull in! Very nice!!

The Ducati's had a real bad problem with stiff clutch pull. They make your right forearm look like Popeye's after a long ride in stop-n-go traffic! Then you can't close your hand for what seems like an eternity.

I had a 996 with an aftermarket slave cylinder(Evoluzione 28mm) and still have a 748 with the stock slave cylinder. The difference is huge, so guess which one I prefer.

The MVs are actually way easier and really aren't a problem at all. But even lighter pull is a plus IMHO.

Plus it's way less likely to leak!

When you install a larger bore slave cyl you lose some travel and the clutch doesn't disengage as far as the stock slave does.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.
