Hodo Rudadue….hopefully you havent ordered Duc parts yet...other than the "topHat" anodised caps that are held on by the bolts that compress the springs.

Check sizes......although clutch plates fit the Vdue basket....theres less of them....the basket is not as deep as on a ducati....thus....I am thinking the springs and the bolts are also shorter....and thus Duc ones no good...I already know the clutch pressure plate from the Vdue is not interchangeable with those used on Ducatis

Top pressure plate on Vdue is also different design to Ducati, springs are recessed into plate were a Duc they are sort of on top of it.( tried an anodised duc plate )
Although Vdue clutch looks similar to Duc one , everything is different. Basket attaches to shaft differently etc , why use carry over available items when you can design your own ???

Surely then it would be a case of drilling Duke top plate , so springs sit as per V-Due or have i missed something here regards all

Different clutch basket design, so top pressure plate different design to match baskets.
Spring collets probably the same but springs probably different spring rate/length , although never tried Ducati ones in vdue.
