For the technical stuff, if you're dimensionally challenged like me (arms and legs, weirdo, get your head outta the gutter), 2" bar risers are a must. No need to extend the lines, it's a perfect fit for my midget ass. First long ride, my shoulders weren't happy. After the risers... perfection. Don't listen to all the Michelin goobers here either. PR 4's are a miserable, vibrating, corner pushing POS of a tire after 5k miles. So what if they last another 10k of doing that shit. PR 5 is just an unsiped version of it, with mud buggy tread. Get a set of Dunlop roadsmarts, way betterer, unless you plan to use it as a flats boat like the Michelins were intended for.
Another new owner so I’ll just ask this here. Do many of you feel the need for a single sided rear stand for tire changes? Having asked that so many of you remove your center stand for better clearance ?
Congrats on the new purchase and welcome to the forum. Wow, this brings back memories. I put 80,000km on mine before I wrote it off in outback New South Wales - great bikes.
And i agree with all the positive comments and one negative - the battery cover. I got sick of it flying off and JB Welded a thread into the part the dzus fastener screwed into, and secured the cover on with a wing nut from the old dzus side. No more problems.
Re the gauges, the same happened to me on a particularly wet tour of Tasmania, necessitating its replacement with a used cluster.
On that same trip a crank bearing started getting noisy, eventually resulting in a rebuild.
One other fault with these bikes is the starting electrics. I highly recommend you replace the earth strap from the starter with a heavier duty cable and always maintain a fully charged battery, otherwise your sprag clutch WILL eventually fail. AMHIK.
I want to add a set of Aux lights to my 2016 MTS, but I have some particular requirements. Any suggestions and feedback will be welcome.
I've already installed the Touratech/Ducati crash bars so I have a good place to mount the lights. I want a set of lights that has interchangeable lenses...
Just sanded down the “nubs” on the tops of the Iconic Parts windscreen spacers, so they work with the Pikes Peak carbon fiber windscreen I just installed.
Jamie Clare’s parts are awesome ... the stock spacers worked perfectly with the stock windscreen on my 1260, I simply needed to mildly...
Forgive me if this is posted in the incorrect place. I've been searching all day for a 2016 Ducati Multistrada 1200 Workshop Manual. I've found the 2015 1200S etc, but not the one I need:-(
Can anyone please please share a download.
I'm at a bit of a loss. Trying to remove the Tuneboy from my Multistrada to sell (both). For the life of me, I cannot seem to load the standard map and unmarry my Tuneboy from the bike. Hoping you guys can offer some assistance. Didn't have any issues loading the map when I bought it, but...
