I'm a new owner of a 2016 1299 panigale. It had an oil change at the dealer I bought it from right before I purchased it (not the local dealer). It is triggering for a service because I have 7500 miles and it doesn't know any better. After 2000 hard miles, I don't mind doing another oil change anyways.
There's a Ducati dealer literally within a mile of where I work, but I think I'm getting quoted a bit high for a 7500 mile service. I was quoted over $700 for an oil service. Not even a desmo service.
I've worked for car dealers my entire adult life, so I REALLY hate to be "that guy", but F me. I see the list of checks needed; are they visual checks or is there disassembly done?
Does the Ducati maintenance manual specify to take the bike apart? In the car world 3.5 hours (what they quoted me) would be a hell of a lot more than visual checks.
I'm happy to do my own services at these prices. But, I have no way to reset the maintenance light.
I'd like a second quote from a shop not affiliated to the chain store down the street.
