Theres a lot of advice here but i was wondering if there are some actual Ducati shop techs here on the forum,for ??'s
Yup... get yourself a service manual online, a few good tools and YOUTUBE just about any fix.Anyone who's owned a Duc for long enough ends up doing their own fair share of tech work, whether they want to or not, but that's part of the fun of it I think. That's why so many people here offer advice, because someones already been there, done that.
Hey Red,Anyone who's owned a Duc for long enough ends up doing their own fair share of tech work, whether they want to or not, but that's part of the fun of it I think.
Mechanics is not a problem its the electronics end,thats where id like more info or theability to diagnose or modify.Hey Red,
I completely agree with you. Wrenching is half the fun and makes the machine more YOURS in the end. What I found amazing, at least on my OLD ST2, that Ducs are about as simple of a machine as possible in relation to their performance. The deeper I get into mine, the more I appreciate the engineering and enjoy the straight forward mechanical path Ducati has taken. I am sure today's machines are far more complicated than my old ST. Hence, I'll be keeping the ST for a long time.
I'm with you there. I appreciate electronics as bikes, cars, etc.. have become a lot better both operationally and in reliability over mechanically operated electronics. BUT, you need some serious cash to add all the required electronic gadgets into the shop..... Hence, we don't, can't (me) or won't do so and need to rely on pro shops. End of story.
With some of the things I've seen and been told by some "Ducati shop techs", you are probably better off in many cases with some of the forum's indy/shadetree/homeschooled mechanics.Theres a lot of advice here but i was wondering if there are some actual Ducati shop techs here on the forum,for ??'s
+1 to what was said above, esp about the simplicity of the earlier EFI Ducs.
