  4. tighten the axle nut
  5. loosen the right side pinch bolts
  6. bounce the suspension
  7. tighten the pinch bolts.


My Multi service manual says to torque the axle first.

I think unless someone wants to take Ducati to court in a class action suit, it will always be that way.

Geez. This question is getting as popular as oil and tires. I think the handful of you guys asking about the 1260 manual should get together and buy it. Then you can share it for everyone else.

I floated the idea on another 1260 thread, but so far no PM's taking me up on it.

I'm not surprised, but that really sucks. For me, half the point of owning a motorcycle is tinkering on it. It seems more and more manufacturers are pulling this stunt so DIYers can't DIY.

It used to be, I just assumed a shop manual would be available at some point. Now I'll have to make a mental to note to check that first before looking at another motorcycle.

Another win for our dumbass, do-nothing modern world. Great!

I generally agree, but less so with your last sentence: we know that the motorcycle industry is struggling and I tend to see this as an attempt to get you back to the dealer regularly where your maintenance contribution -- here it's around $150/hr -- helps sustain the dealer and provides an opportunity for the sales person to talk you into a trade-in deal on a new bike. You also keep the price of a new bike down because you make additional payments as part of servicing.

It's a strategy, definitely; whether it's the right one is, I think, questionable.
