Chuckracer All Ducatis. They don't like to be lugged. No short stroke engine does.

Sonamtpk Is this only for the hypernotard or other ducats as well?

Sonamtpk Yeah already scheduled that for tomorrow. Just wanna know if anyone had a similar problem. Thanks though.
But what made me really worried was that the engine was really shaky on low speed and felt like the engine was about to die. I've only ridden jap bikes before. is there any specific way to ride the Ducati compared to other jap bikes ( the throttle and reving)?

Tripod You simply take it back to the dealer to have them make it right. Make them send a truck for it at their expense.

Engine over heat

Yesterday I bought a used hypermotard 796 2012, with just 3800 miles from a dealer, first everything seemed good but when I rode it to my home(15 miles) it stared to over heat and the engine oil light got on(red light). The dealer told me that it only needed a tune up after about 6000 miles. But I don't know what to do. Very worried. Really appreciate if anyone has anything for me? Please. And the engine also felt like it was about to seize. Don't know much about the bike.
