I need the factory list of what to check/change and when. I haven't received my warranty info that I understand includes the service schedule. (I've searched everywhere with no joy, must be top secret info?)
Thanks

Mark,

Have you checked the Ducati web site yet? When I brought the ST4s in for the 6K service couple of years ago - to a local race shop in golden speaking Ducati, they went directly to the Ducati web site while I was checking in the bike and pulled down the details of the 6K ST4s service.

Want to mention around 2:00p on the way home from a lunch ride, on 285 near Elk Creek Elementary / Shaffer's Crossing I passed a red 749/999 coming the other way. I was on a red sporting thing. Thought maybe it was you coming from a Pine Valley Rd. break-in run.

The only thing I find is this:
"When does my Ducati have to go in for maintenance?
Our bikes are due for maintenance as follows:
Service "A": within 6 months or 1,000 km;
Service "B": within 12 months or 10,000 km;
Service "C": within 24 months or 20,000 km;
Service "D": within 36 months or 30,000 km;
etc...
Remember that the service must be carried out as soon as one of the two deadlines indicated above is met (e.g., either 6 months or 1,000 km).
You can find details of the procedure to follow in the Warranty Handbook that accompanies your bike.
"

Guess I'll have to wait for my warranty card to arrive to get more details.

Was that Friday? I went to Long Scraggly Peak and back to 285 then west to the Loaf and Jug for my first refuelling.

This breaking in is hard work, but somebody's got to do it, I suppose!

Is this a new bike? Bought from a dealer? Did it not come with an owners manual?

All this information is in the owners manual.

New bike: yes.
The service schedules are in the warranty book which I don't yet have. Supposed to get it eventually. I was hoping someone with the magic warranty book could clue me in.

I'll say it again: The owners manual and warranty information should have come with the bike. Your dealer has this stuff...it came with the bike whan they got it. Get ahold of them and bitch.

I, too, was wondering about this "warranty booklet" because my dealer didn't give that to me, either. I have all of the other manuals (owner's, dealer listing, and desmo owner's club).

I called Ducati N.A. and the customer service woman said she'd email it to me but I never got it. I'll have to give her another call.

So, you could call DNA and ask them to email it or fax it to you.

I waited a long time for the warranty book and the dealer finally told me they are no longer sending that out. Not sure what it is for anyway, but I think all warranty info is kept on a computer somewhere so paper copy for owner is no longer needed.

Ah, so that explains why we never got the booklet from our dealers. It makes sense since the owner's manual tells us when the services need to be done but I would like a list of exactly what should be done (checked, replaced, etc.) at each of the service intervals.

I found one on the web but it was only for the 600 mile service.

Consider investing in the factory CD manual. It is very well worth $85. It has the complete table of routine maintenance and explains in pretty good detail all the steps for most every thing you will do to your bike.

Personaly, I'd skip the LT Snyder service books. In comparison, his superbike book is a waste of $$.
