I do most of the servicing on my own bikes.

for my 1098, 1299 and Multistrada, I buy my oil change kits from Ducati Omaha, good prices and fast delivery https://www.ducatiomaha.com/collections/multistrada-1200/products/ducati-oem-oil-change-kit-manufacturer-recommended

There's not a lot of complexity to changing the oil on Ducati's. I do usually swap out the oil drain plug for an aftermarket one that allows for safety wiring, required by most track day organizers and my 1098 and 1299 see quite a bit of track use.

I also safety wire the oil filter and oil filler cap. For the oil filter, I use a worm clamp (home Depot), see picture below, although not necessary on the Multistrada and other Ducati's these day, but I still have bikes with spin on filters and use this method..

When doing the actual oil change, I usually put an aluminum baking pan below the bike which I actually put my oil catch container in, I always manage to slop some oil somewhere I don't want it and the aluminum pan tends to catch this.

If you replace the filter with a k&n you have a nut on the bottom with safety wire hole if I remember correctly

Can anyone answer where the two rubber hoses sticking out the left side attach to? There’s that small metal hook, but in removing the engine covers, I missed where the hook attaches to.

One of the screws that holds the lower aloy guard on passes through the metal hook/loop, and the hoses pass through the metal loop poking through the gap in the aloy guards. (2010-2014) i had the same problem when i pulled mine apart. Its fiddly to work it out, but there is a smaller hole in the metal hook which a screw passes through. Good luck:smile2:

as far as i am aware it can only be reset using the ducati computer and there are no aftermarket things like the GS-911 (for BMW R1200GS) that do it for the 1260 at least..
