What a thing of beauty.

Not to rub salt at all just realizing that the clutch housing had been updated by MV and certainly was MUCH more robust for the '15 800RR slipper.

Attachment 450425

The housing appears to be all steel with a retaining ring outboard.

The parts diagrams I checked do not reflect the change in housings while the numbers appear to do so.
Are the other parts the same on the diagram? Wonder if I can replace the clutch basket and good or if they added more clutch plates to the pack?

Can you send the part numbers please!

Hmm, a steel band, just like the one that broke and got dragged into the primary gears on my 1976 Suzuki GT750 years ago, luckily lived to tell the tale. To be fair does look pretty substantial.

How did you break a GT750 ??? Those bikes never break...even today, if you can find one that's unmolested and in good nick.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

By fitting and then breaking a cheap chain, wrapping it around the gearbox sprocket and going from 10k rpm to 0 in a split second. Bike ran fine after hammering off the chain. The band on the clutch had almost certainly broken at the same time. Luckily I was only going at walking pace when it got drawn into the primary drive. Fixed and bike still ran fine. As you say amazingly strong. One of the best bikes I've ever had, a lot more fun than the CB750 four that I owned before it. Wish I still had it now, even scruffy ones are fetching stupid money here now.

With broken baskets being an issue it was time to disassemble and inspect the one on my F3. No problems were found. Here is a picture of the STM slipper.
Does anyone have the part number for the new banded basket? I'm going to get one as a preventative measure. Too much spent on this thing to chance a materials defect blow up.

I took a quick look into Part Numbers on two MV dealer websites and found this:

clutch housing 800RR 8000B9716

clutch housing F3 8000B9716

clutch housing B3800 8000B9716

clutch housing B3>16 8000B9716.
Clearly these parts are not the same in fact.

Unfortunately this will require more investigation with MV directly by anyone wanting to upgrade their housing.

I found different part numbers for the entire clutch assemblies for each model and while this may reflect the slipper vs non-slipper parts it is not specified in the parts list.
In the case of the post '16 clutch the difference would at least be the change in the primary drive gear ratios.

The old original version of the basket is no longer used and the part number is updated to the newer style basket for all the 3-cylinder bikes. Not sure if 8000B9617 is the correct code however.

All the parts websites like startwin list the same part numbers like you mentioned above. Frustrating as you don't want to order and receive the same part as what is in the bike now.

I am also planning on replacing my clutch basket with the latest part.

I'd feel a lot better if that part number was a 8000Cxxxx or 8000Dxxxx but it would make me nervous to order it and get the old outer basket.

Correct code for updated basket, confirmed by MVUSA, is 8000B9716. Parts system indicating "available".
