GREAT bike

Hi Jez,

That Multi is a GREAT bike! Sorry that you are having difficulty with it. Can you let us know what some issues are? We might be able to provide some advice.

First bit is that if you are looking to fix her up get you self two shop manuals, first get the official Ducati manual. PDF is all over the new and this forum.
Second I cannot recommend highly enough the Desmo Times manual. Writen by LT Snider. Go to Desmo Times dot com.
Best 40 you can spend. Covers all regular maintenance including the valve checks.

No affiliation to DTs just love LT's work.

Post some pics as well...
