Belts and Valves!

1147 4
Hi guys. New (2005) ST3 owner here, haven't even registered her yet... I've got a 750 SS too, but she's relatively new also... after 25 bikes, I finally tried Ducati and I'm hooked.

So, besides introducing myself to the group, I'm searching for a mentor.

For me to live with my Ducati's I need to be able to maintain them. I've done my own rudimentary maintenance on all of my bikes, but now I need to replace the belts and inspect the valve clearances on something a little more complicated (maybe). So, here's what I'm looking for. Is there anyone out there in the Baltimore area that would be willing to teach me to do this maintenance? I would pay, or return the favor in kind, or come to some agreement of some sort... I just don't want to fumble around figuring out how to do this correctly when I know there are lots of folks out there who can guide me to doing it correctly the first time.

So, do you guys do Tech Days? Something else? Any takers?

Thanks guys! I just ordered my manual from LT. Once I get it I'm sure I'll have lots more questions :)

I cant believe how impressed I am with the ST. When I test rode her the bars were in their highest position, and I kept thinking it might not be sporty enough. Then today I dropped the bars to their lowest position, and kept her above 6000 rpm for the better part of an hour, and she was incredible!

I'm thinking I have no need for my SS anymore!
