DIY maintenance

I just brought home my new to me 1260. My nearest Ducati dealer is about 100 miles away. I did a quick search and could not find anything for do-it-yourself items like wheel removal and oil changes. Does anyone have any information on torque values for the wheels and where I can get the huge socket that is required for the rear wheel?

First stop: the Tech Section sticky to see if there's a service manual in the collection for your bike.

The rest is a giant can of worms or a barrel of monkeys. Take your pick.

You can pick up the socket required to remove the back wheel from the SSSA on that auction site quite inexpensively, as well as a chain adjustor tool if your bike didn't come with one (mine was used and came with zero tools).

I picked this one up and it's worked well. Steel Ducati 1098/1198 SF MTS1200 wheel nut socket

They have the chain adjuster also. Rear wheel nut is 230 Nm torque, front is about 65 Nm.

For the big socket for the rear wheel just make sure you go for the steel rather than aluminum version. I have the aluminum and the teeth are already deforming after just a couple of uses

Confirmed. I've used the steel one over a dozen times already and it looks new. Just remember to crack the rear nut with the bike on the sidestand and someone (or two people) sitting on the bike. I tried once after I had already removed the front wheel, and I ended up having to make two trips to the tyre shop :-P

Roger, if the Multistrada really is four bikes in one. I might have a garage sale.

+1 or 2 on the steel rear nut socket. Also your going to need a massive breaker bar for that nut or a good 1/2" drive impact wrench to get it off and a large torque wrench to put it back on.

230 nm. Sweet heavens. 169 foot pounds and change. I don't think my big torque wrench goes that high.

You'll need the 8-flute oil filter wrench; dealer had one for about $8. The rear nut sockets I've seen flip over for the size of the front end nut. I also loosely understand that you'll need a tool to help locate the front wheel while you re-place the front axle.

I may just sell the bike before I need tires...

Thanks guys for all the information. I just hate to have to take the bike to the shop for every little thing. I am hopefully only going to be there for the 18000 mile service.
