I've just replaced the clutch and cylinder on Ducati 100

Customer Question

I've just replaced the clutch and slave cylinder on Ducati 100 supersports (dry clutch). I've bleed the clutch well, but still find the clutch does not completely disengage. It is an aftermarket slave, but has the same travel as the genuine.
JA: How many miles are on the clutch? Has it been slipping or sticking?
Customer: I've completely replaced the basket and plates....brand new
JA: What is the model/year of your motorcycle?
Customer: 2003
JA: Are you fixing your bike yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: as stated replaced clutch plates and basket and slave cylinder
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No just how to

Hello, the only other thing would be the clutch master cylinder leaking internally not causing enough flow to the slave for full travel.
