ST3 Closer Spring
Sometime between my last service in Dec. ‘18 to the service this month my Duc dealer found a exhaust closer/helper spring had broken. It was on the vertical cylinder.
I didn’t notice any change in sound, running, etc. so nothing clued me in it had broken. Current mileage is 27,020.
They retrieved the stray finger from the oil screen, glad it was doing its job. Interesting it made its way there without causing any havoc.
Something else for reference; the current Ducati replacement is a two piece spring it seems. They didn’t realize this and only ordered “half” the parts to do the job. So it took an extra week, but no complaints here. Thought you guys might like to see the hardware.
