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.
New member and possible future Ducatisti here. Right now I've got a 2007 600rr. I've been riding for ~20 years. Because of family obligations, etc I don't ride nearly as much as I used to and only put <1,000 miles per year on the bike. I also do about 2-3 track days yer year but hope to do...
Getting close to getting my FE back into commission. This is a project which went on ice when my company transferred me to Japan 5 years ago.
I finally got some time on my hands and want to get the bike in perfect shape before I register it. The bike has been stored for the past 5 years...
I bought a used full/complete Akrapovic exhaust. The seller didn’t have the installation instructions.
I looked online but cannot find them. Can someone please post or send me the install instructions for a 959? I think the 1299 will work as well. Thank you.
I’m in the middle of a project, basically trying to stick an 848 swing on onto an old 1984 yamaha xv920.. seemed like a good idea at the time!
I’ve been researching wheels and think a five spoke would look much better on the old bike than the newer 848 10 spoke Marchesini wheels...
I had a barn find.
2010 1198S Corse

The price was so low I couldn't say no,
In fact, you could day I stole it with cash.
I brought her home Saturday.
I dubbed her Bella.
