I'm looking for some help from my Ducati brothers. I'm in the middle of a 5000km road trip and my chain has come loose (S2R1000). I do not have the tools to fix it, and there is no dealer in LV. It is so loose that my bike continuously jerks. Is there anyone in LV who can help me or point me in the right direction.

I don't think you have to go to a Ducati dealer to get help for a chain problem. Good luck to you.

i am not in las vegas - unfortunately - but i can
point you in the right direction:

you basicly need no tools to tighten the chain on
a single sided swingarm ducati. All you need to
do is to open the two screws that clamp the ex-
center, the big ones at the very left rear of the
swingarm, the ones that you could grab with a
pair of pliers if needed...

all you do then is step on the rear brake, to have
the rear wheel locked, and push the bike slightly
forward to tighten the chain and simoultaninously
tighten the two screws again.

it is easy...

double check to not over tighten, roll the bike
forward and check at several positions before you
ride on.

cheers. :)

hope this guy gets the help he needs. Driving a Ducati cross country can be perilous.
