The oil change and forks went quick... but the shock looks like it might be a pain.

I bought the Multi there in '15, they stopped selling them a couple years ago but the Ducati Master Tech is still there... and they have a computer.

They just can't do warranty service (of course). I've always found their pricing reasonable and their quality excellent. If I ever buy a Beemer it'll be there.

I'm actually a bit past 75k (I'm at 51,950 miles... 82k or so) but got a bit out of sync when I traveled (early services, lights out of sync, etc...)

Final tally, $800 and a few nickels... but that includes a hundred beans for a pair of Alpinestars gloves I liked.

So $700, he started at 11:30 and finished up at 5:30. He was done with the 75k and fork services by 3, so the last 2.5hours was pulling, testing and reinstalling the shock.

We talked about it and decided not to try servicing the shock. Some tips for folks with higher mileage Sach's suspensions:

Ducati recommends Sach's service their shocks, and it's pretty obvious why when you get it out, there's no easy way to service them. There's no nitrogen charge port for instance and he'd have had to install one. He'd done it before (not on Sachs) and was willing to but was afraid if he'd needed parts we'd have been stuck with an inoperable shock.

He also bench tested the shock and felt it was still performing well with no signs of issues, there was no sign of seal seepage for instance when he took the cap off. My shock has 52k miles on it now so I'd really assumed it was past due... he also was a bit surprised and suggested that he'd be open to taking it apart if he had more time. I thought maybe I'd pull it over the winter and send it down to him - but then again if it's still working well maybe I'll wait a year or two.

I've yet to find any proper documentation on service of the Sachs front forks for the 2013/14 bikes. Maybe I'll do an attempt when mine gets due here towards fall for the 15k service.
