I had a feeling that it was like this for Ducati too but didn't have any proof.

It was like that for many brands, actually. August in many countries in Europe is very low activity. Many motorcycle dealers are off during August, specially in non touristic areas. And even in touristic areas, there may be half of them doing their yearly vacations. And then for the parts, for the frequent usual parts delivered to customer, it's likely not an issue, as dealers/importers have advance stock. However, any parts not usually part of the maintenance (basically any other reparation) is likely not available and waiting for the factory to come back from vacation…

Still Waiting

Rang my dealer just now.

Still waiting for the £2.50 spacer to arrive however after chatting to the dealer, i have been informed that MV have released a service bulletin to deal with the issue of sub-standard clutch baskets.

Im not able to access the bulletins, could someone confirm this for me please?

Regards

Stuart

There is apparently a Service Bulletin number 214 issued from MV. It was mentioned in a french forum, and it seems to apply to all 3 cylinders model up to a certain VIN for each. Check with your dealers.

Swapped out the clutch basket this weekend. The 6 Torx fasteners are a PITA to get out, took a bit of mapp gas heat and still two had to be extracted. I sourced some quality Allen head fasteners used in place of the cheap OEM Torx fasteners. Spot of red Loctite and they should stay in place.

The new basket design has more thickness in each basket finger and the support band is about 50% wider. It doesn't look like the basket with the steel band on it someone posted but rather more like the original in a hard anodized gray finish as shown elsewhere in this thread. Cheers

Did you damage the cush drive rubbers when applying the heat? Were you able to re-use the rubbers? My only MV dealer in the country went bust so don't want to tackle it alone unless I have replacements on hand (cant afford to wait 5 weeks for parts to arrive from Italy). Would rather ride until the parts arrive if that is the case.

Can you take out the basket from the bike while the torx fasteners are attached or would you have to take the entire bike to an engineering shop if it came to extracting the fasteners?

Good questions!

The rubber dampers were fine and so was the O-ring. I used a pin point of heat on each bolt head and on the back side where they go into the gear.

The basket assembly slides right out of the bike. It was then mounted it in a vise with soft jaws. The extractor bit was not actually used as the troublesome fasteners came out while reverse drilling them to create a place to insert the extractor bit. That happens more often than not.

Picked up the new fasteners from McMaster-Carr for about $12
