Hello everyone!!! needing some help

Hi I'm a new rider and I got my bike in November of 2011. Riding that bike every chance I get and loving it. Learning more more on it.
I have a 2009 Ducati Monster 696, bought from a dealer here used.

My question on here for needing some help is that I'm having problems with my clutch.

Yesterday, I was on my way back home from work and it seems like my gears or pads are not catching like they should. It shifted into the gears as I go, but say that I'm 6th gear and I'm passing a car. My RPMs start reving higher than what I'm actually throttling back. Now later on when I got home and I was going somewhere else. I put it in 1st gear and the bike didn't even go. the RPMs just went up and the bike was just coasting and didn't stall. I turned it off and walked it to the garage.

Now since I got it I haven't done anything to it, but ride around. I don't know if the clutch pads are stuck or worn out. I don't know if I burned out my clutch or just the liquids are needing to be changed.

Any advice would be great. Thank you

Could be a few things. Sounds like slipping clutch due to wear though. Im not familiar with that clutch but maybe it just needs to be adjusted

Soinds like it may be slipping, however there is an adjustment at the lever for the pushrod.
Swing by and I'll look at it, no charge.

If he doesn't have a truck or access to one to load the bike on, someone probably should help him getting the bike to Patrick, wouldn't want to see a new rider getting stranded (say the least) trying to get the bike to the shop.

Bikes get grumpy when stored too long, and too often people put car oil in bikes.

I'm pretty sure the 696 is a wet clutch. Bleeding the master and slave may help. Often dealer bikes sit for some time before the buy them to resale. Fluids settle and often gum up, especially if PO used the wrong fluids. Next step might be to change the engine oil. If you're handy, inspect and bathe the friction plates before reassembly. If you're not handy, make sure you choose your oil wisely.

Beyond that there are a host of things to look at, and a qualified shop may be the quickest resolution.

I thought the monster was dry clutch until 2010 on the 1100 evo when they switched from dry to wet clutch.

No warranty. Plus I like to learn about my bike. Ever since I got it. I've been reading the manual and watching vids on youtube on how the service there bikes. I like to do things myself to have a better understanding about the bike, but I'll take advice and watch how its done any way I can get it.
And yea for sure I'll bring it in for you to look at. I have a truck. Just need an address. I'm open anytime this week until Monday next week.
