This kit uses ceramic balls for lower friction and a tough steel outer bearing race.
--- Love the bike? Except for the shifting? Hard to find neutral?
The famous Factorini Provente Shift Kit is now available for Ducatis Factorini Provente designed and manufactured Microbearing Detent Arm and Factorini Provente designed Detent Spring will firm up the shift feel and virtually eliminates missed shifts - both upshifting and downshifting and neutral is easier to find.
Trackday and race bikes
Eliminates the need for that old, annoying "Ducati trick" of removing the "really kinda necessary" neutral detent that was done to quicken up the shifting on trackday and race bikes - all too often...... (did I mention that when I put a bike in neutral on the dyno, that I really prefer it to STAY in neutral and not "wander into 1st gear by itself? :-)
Shifts quicker. Misses fewer shifts.
Perfect to install when working on the clutch. Remove the clutch assembly, remove the RH engine cover - bolt in the kit. Includes: Factorini Provente Microbearing Detent Arm and Factorini Provente Detent Spring. (This kit does not include a clutch cover gasket) Installation: Less than 2 hours to install with impact wrench and large socket set. Can I install it myself? Yes - If you can remove the clutch assembly, you can do this.

Value Quality Price
I've installed several shift kits in Ducatis and customers were happy. It's easier to find neutral (as long as your clutch isn't dragging) and there's fewer of those "missed a lazy shift" in the upper gears.
Aggressive shifting is quicker with a fewer missed shifts - up and down.
