I have an 848, just wondering what tools i need to remove the wheels so that I dont have to take the whole bike in to just do a tire change.

I know i need a torque wrench but are there any other special "ducati" tools I need?

That tool is cool but you can grab a 41 mm and 46 mm socket from northern tool on ebay for $15 each shipped if you want to save some twenties.

You'll need long pipe to extend the breaker bar. Also, you'll need a friend to hold down the bike and the brake while you are unbolting the rear wheel. It's such a pain in the ass, I invested in an impact wrench. Otherwise, it's a two person job.

For the front, you'll have to remove the calipers. You'll need Hex socket bits, anti-seize grease, and a torque wrench [15-40 nm]. Be sure to read the service manual on the sequence of tightening. If you do it incorrectly, your suspension will be all wonky.
