Loss of gears 2013 pp 1200

Went into work today and from a stop I stalled the bike. I looked down and it said 3rd gear weird as it wouldn't go down any further. I was able to shift into 4th 5th and 6th on the free way but wasnt able to go down to 4th. Get to work and it sits for 10 hours and now I can do 4th and 5th but not 6th. I still don't have 1,2 or 3rd gears. I just did a fluid flush of brakes and clutch 2 days and about 150 miles ago. I need help asap please.

Probably the return spring broken. It's a common problem with Ducati.

You need parts 20 and 27 in pic. Only one probably broken, but change both. Approx 2 hours to fix for a shop. Springs are cheap. The oil needs to be drained, new oil and filter.

+1. They are good for about 20K miles and then they fail. When I first got my bike with just a couple of miles on it, a local indy told me the shift return spring would fail at 20K miles and it did. It's a weak link/design common to several Ducati models - not just the Multistrada. Way to go Ducati.

22830, i just put a new battery and changed the fluids. I thought maybe i had done the clutch fluid wrong, but yea it probably is the spring. I was quoted 597 to do it at a shop in SF. I am going to try and see where else there is to go. On my evo I had advanced cycles do it, but they were closed so Ill have to call tomorrow.

A creative/experienced shop will have a "hook in the ceiling" above their service stand to suspend the bike over at enough of an angle so the oil doesn't have to be drained when pulling the side covers to change these springs. (That is of course if the oil doesn't need changing anyway.) Saves some time and a fair percentage of the job's cost.

I went to Nichols Sport Bikes nicholssportbikes.com - 913 Hanson Court, Milpitas, CA 95035 - 1-408-945-0911 - about 4 years ago.

It cost me $200 for the tow (from my garage where the spring fortunately broke) + $300 for labor + $5 for the spring

Yeah, that's what I said too.

I usually do my own work, but this required a special tool (if I recall correctly???) I didn't have at the time and I was feeling lazy so I took the beating.

It's a frightening thing to know that spring could break while out on a trip. It would suck to have it break off in the mountains somewhere.
