Hi all, starting to think about getting the belts and valves done on my ‘12 SF 848. Anyone feel the MBP collets and matching modified shins are necessary for this bike, or stick with OEM? Also read that the published clearances are too wide of a range issued by Ducati, anyone have the narrower clearance ranges recommended valve measurements for the SF 848? Looking to really help this bike last. Thanks all for your thoughts.

In the workshop manual it lists an assembly tolerance range, and service range.
I just stick with the assembly range and adjust to the tighter end of spec.

It depends. I have these collets on my sf1098 and they does their job of extending valve checks.

But the 848 is already at each 15k miles?

If you want to keep the bike to 100k miles i would say yes. If you sell in a few years or don't ride much, no.

For clearance i use 2-4 thousand inches for closer and 5-7 for openers. Notice inches, i find this easier.
