whhoaa thanks for the tip... I changed the oil successfully but i didnt get your warnings till after and luckily i opted to leave the bolt alone... I also flushed all brake and clutch fluid, and radiator luckily, Looks like in ride to ride for the first time
erniespts14, I just did a search on the old site and found a great step by step instruction on how to change the oil on a SBK and generac. It is Bucklew and also has tourge values on all that you have asked. It also has photos. I did this search because my 748 is coming up on an oil change in the very near future. Hope this helps.
The first time I did an oil change on my Duc I took it out. I played with it for awhile trying to figure out why Ducati put it in there. I gave up on trying to figure out why it was there.
NOW I KNOW...
I put it back in and have not had any problems with leaks. I guess I was lucky.... wait, I am never lucky.... who knows....
I believe the hex is a 10mm for the oilmesh. If you have a bike newer then -01 then it´s a 15mm bolt.
The small bolt UNDER the oilmesh.. well.. I´ve heard people using permanent loctite and getting a good seal with that, together with a new crush-washer.
Since you´ve put it back.. Leave it and see. If it starts sweating or dripping, then go with a crush-washer and loctite. Just make sure to clean the threads with brakecleen or some other de-greaser first.
I was hoping we could start a trackday/race picture thread like the superbike picture thread. I am curious to see what some of your bikes look like in race track trim or street trim on a track. I am hoping to get some track bodywork for my 999 and I figured a thread like this could be good...
So, I started with a wrecked 959 as a rebuild and then came across a wrecked 899 and decided to keep the 899. I like the styling of the 959 so I decided to transfer everything over from the 959 to the 899. So far I have confirmed that the tail transfers over as long as you have the tail bracket...
my bike getting poor mileage. also smells bad behind me , on petrol. fuel.
cons. is about 9-10 liters /100km
it have unknown eprom.

not on idle, but at load/driving.
