Worn Engine Sprocket Retainer

Sprocket Plate

The engine sprockets on all belt engine Ducatis upto the Testastretta motors are retained by a plate that locks onto the gearbox shaft splines. These do wear and should be checked periodically to ensure that you don't loose your sprocket off. The one in the photo decided to move towards the motor. I have seen one that tried to get off and ran against the plastic sprocket cover wrecking that. The consequences of the sprocket coming off altogether are quite serious so keep an eye on this.
