A couple months ago I started a thread about how to do the 7500 mile service. The time came. I did the service yesterday with some friends. I started at 1130 and we finished around 1700. It took longer than expected. Taking that gas tank is not easy plus I accidently got a spring inside the gas tank. We Had to take all the gas out and the fuel pump to get the spring out. I enjoyed doing the work. The valve clarences were within spec. When I took off the belt covers I saw on the casting a M letter does marchocci make the casting for Ducati? I'm so glad I did the work now I have extra cash that I didn't spend at the dealer. I recommend everyone to their own service is not hard, just got to have patience and time with it.
