Sorry I do not.
Contact MV and ask; they answered my email within a week.

The clutch update was completed on my bike last month, 24 Jan 19.

My supplier informed me a couple of weeks ago that the sprag parts have been delivered, but they are still waiting the clutch/wheel parts - MV haven't communicated a date to them yet.

FWIW all the parts have now arrived! Looks like MV is really pulling it's finger out.

Alright, so I just replaced my clutch with the new hub and cush rubbers. The only dealer with the agency went bust last year so I ordered the parts myself from Evolutionbike (didnt want to wait months before a new dealer took up the MV franchise so paid for it and now installed it myself in attempt to avoid catastrophic failure)


1st Pic , old bottom, new top









From the several pictures posted above, you can see that the fingers on the new clutch are much chunkier and you can see they have a round thickener in the middle of each finger. The the old one (silver) didnt have this. Also the stiffening ring is much thicker and wider on the new one.


The new clutch rubbers come in two compounds, the black is stiff and is similar to the old rubbers and the green is much softer. I imaging this is to give a softer low speed throttle feeling. My F3 originally only came with 6 stiff black rubbers.



The hex screws holding the cush drive plate are pain to get out as they are locktighted to shi*. I managed to quickly remove 5 of the 6 using a torx bit attached to my rattle gun but the 6th and last one sheared the bit so had to take to an engineering shop to take it out. Use of a rattle gun with torx is not advised and do so at your own risk. The new screws are Hex (thank goodness) and old ones torx (think the MV engineer was smoking something when he specced it like that)


Clutch put together and installed



And last one, buttoned together and good to go


I saw on MV's technical bulletin that it should take 30min to replace which is ridiculous. It took me 5 hours taking it at a steady pace (besides the two days lost due to the issue with the rounded torx bit on the old hub). Think a good mechanic who does this daily should take about 1.5-2 hours.


Hope this helps for those wondering what the differences were.

PTsalas,

I replaced mine recently because I was able to locate an entire clutch basket with plates etc for a good price. I noticed that the drive gear on the back of the basket on the new part had some movement to it by hand. My old one didn't. Do you recall if yours had this? It doesn't drive any differently or make more noise, its just an observation of mine.

The cush drive is worn...... shouldn't have easy movement between the drive gear and basket.

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

Let me clarify. It isn't radial movement at all, which is what the cush drive absorbs right?. It is axial play that I could feel at the drive gear.


Same is what is experienced on the rear sprocket. The cush drive is for radial forces.


It is very minimal. Can't even be 1 mm of movement but it could be felt by hand. Technically it is the interface between the gear flange(9916) and clutch boss washer(1728). Looking more closely at the diagrams the clutch basket is available separately and not likely the part in question anyway.

I think mine was looser with the new hub than the previous hub (if you just put the gear onto the hub without the cush rubbers. With the cush rubbers installed, that slop disappears . I replaced my cush drives with the new revised items as well.
