Just fitted a clutch cover

Now all I need is a red pressure plate... better put a post in the adverts section!

Red or Black spring caps?

I wouldn't dare fit a clutch cover like that, I could see one of the local kids butting there fingers through the holes while I have the bike warming up outside the house.

Your right it does need some colour behind it, buy some red enamel then chuck it in the oven and stove it

You could try painting it. I used Hammerite on mine until I could find an anodised one. It didn't look too bad.

I was thinking of that - I have a tin of PlastiKote Ducati Red (aka Red #1120) and the original clutch from the 748 that I could try it out on...

No, it's a cheap Chinese copy! Bought by a friend of mine for his 1098S but he couldn't get it to fit, so I tried it on the 'Tard and it fitted fine. It needed the bolt holes taking out to 6mm as they were just catching the threads (must have been 5.5mm holes or something!) and the milled edges have not been rounded, but otherwise it's one of the thickest aftermarket clutch covers I've seen and it's anodised too.

It was a bit of a gamble but at a 1/4 of the prices of the Speedymoto one, it'll do
