  1. Battery strap bolt spinning...

    I had this happen on my 2011, the brass thread insert is spinning in the plastic. My solution was to drill out the bolt and then do the same with the brass thread insert. Then install a rivnut and install the strap with another bolt same as the original.

  3. Anyone buy 1260 pannier liners from eBay?

    I bought the Bestem liners for my 2011 Multi, they’ve worked well, no complaints whatsoever. I also like the small zippered clear outer compartment, it works great for easy access of items such as ear plugs, etc...
  4. Best way to tie down 2017 DVT

    I use a harness on the handle bars (Canyon Dancer) with 2” PowerTye ratchet straps, with the front wheel in a Baxley sport chock. For the rear wheel I go off of the passenger peg brackets using another set of PowerTye ratchet straps with soft hooks around the brackets. It’s important to pull...
  5. Considering a GPS ?

    It seems obvious after reading the posts in this thread that everyone has different needs or preferences when using electronic navigation, here are my observations: Garmin Nuvi- No Bluetooth audio, unable to see the screen in bright sunlight, not waterproof but that was never an issue for me...
  6. Oxford heated grips

    No issues with fitment, you’ll probably need to sand down (slightly) the ribs on the throttle tube so the grip will slide on. The LH grip slides on easily, you’ll need to glue the grips in place. I used superglue. If I recall correctly the stock Multistrada grips are 120-121 mm in length and the...
  7. Oxford heated grips

    I have Oxford grips on my 2011 Multi. I love them, they’ll get hot enough for low 30 degree temps ( I haven’t ridden anything colder) and I like the larger diameter grip size. I’ve been using them for 3 years without any problems.
  8. double-duty enclosed trailer

    Ducati Motorcycle Chat
    I have a 7x14 Wells Cargo V nose tandem axle that I use primarily for my bike but I’ve also used it to haul my 60” deck Dixie Chopper ztr. You definitely will need a 7’ wide trailer for deck clearance and I highly recommend a V nose as it makes a huge difference in how it tows and the extra...
  9. Airhawk Dual Sport seat cushion

    Some people swear by Airhawks, I personally have no use for them. I borrowed one for a trip on my 2011 and saw no improvement, thinking I hadn’t properly adjusted it I bought one and tried it on another trip. I was able to experiment with the air pressure extensively, and I never saw a...

    If it were me I’d go with the Dimple plug, looks well made.

  12. Wanted: 2012 MTS Top Case Solution

    On my 2011 I used an SW-Motech steel luggage rack https://www.twistedthrottle.com/sw-motech-steel-rack-to-fit-many-top-case-styles-for-ducati-hyperstrada-821-13-15-multistrada-1200-1200s-1200s-gt-10-14, with a Givi mono key mount kit to mount a Givi V-47 top case. I’ve been very pleased with it...
  13. Why isn't my chain and sprocket change going well?

    Take the slave cylinder off and everything should fit.

    For all of those people who are bemoaning the fact that their poor, innocent, pure as the driven snow idol Rossi was victimized. I suggest you watch this: http://www.superbikeplanet.com/let-the-first-stone-be-thrown-by-the-one-among-you-who-has-not-sinned-jesus/ That’s just one of the many times...
