Cycle Cat CC series billet aluminum clutch covers are designed first for function. Lighter than stock steel and much stronger than carbon fibre, billet aluminum construction provides the maximum protection possible for clutch components, while minimizing unecessary weight. HMC Racing subjected them to destruction testing before putting them on Steve Rapp's, Andy Meklau's, and Scott Russell's bikes during the 2001 season. Very simply, they outperformed cast and composite products in every respect.
Machined entirely from solid aluminum stock, CC series clutch covers are strong. Their open design provides enhanced ventilation to help keep the clutch running cool and clean. The DCC9 is a full-open, split-component design, affording outstanding strength with maximum ventilation and visual access to the clutch. While a minimalist approach to clutch coverage, the strength of the machined materials provides a surprising amount of protection for the clutch components. Combined with the DPP1 pressure plate (as shown), the clutch protection is further enhanced.
These clutch covers not only perform, but look good in the process. Some say these are the most beautiful things ever installed on a Ducati. To us, what's most beautiful about them, is the fact that they do their job brilliantly.
