Looking over the MotoMfg.com tools, how many of you think it is necessary to have the front axle drift and / or the front axle alignment tool ?

The weight loss will be worth a couple of HP

In all fairness it not just exhaust. It's a high flow air filter & race ECU & a full replacement exhaust system. But I still think 7hp would be on the high end.
The usual comment is that the race ECU doesn't get the job done without additional fiddling. Wouldn't know myself as it is not in my plan.

Ha ha - thanks Ace.

You must have missed my post a couple of weeks ago - my dealer closed and Ducati is "discussing options" for a new dealer, so bottom line is I CAN'T discuss it with my dealer because I don't have one!

That's why I asked you - if you have a URL or something pls let me know...

thx, DD

You have no dealers within a couple hundred miles? My closest dealer is 2+ hours away. I will ask my dealer for info

What is the average cost of a valve service on the 1200? I understand its subjective but ball park $800 to 1K?

It varies widely depending on where you are. I'm on the low end of the scale at $620. That was the 15k service last year on my previous 1200.

+1

Here in the Bay Area of CA, the 15k service runs $800-$1200 depending on the shop and if the valves are in spec or out. In is less $$ because they just button her back up. Out, well, then they get the fun and enjoyment of digging through their box-o-shims.

Do you change your own tires? If so, get the combo kit of all 3 tools. The axle alignment tool isn't 100% necessary, but dang handy. If you have a shop change your tires, not nearly as big of a deal to have.

You can get around having this tool by tightening up the pinch bolts a little bit while snugging up the axle bolt. You just need to get the axle bolt tight enough to not fall out after having seated the shoulder of the axle.

Value adjustment cost

I guess I got the cheapest price ever on getting my valves adjusted, 1 hour labor. (Usually 8-10 hours labor)
Now let me tell you why and how so cheap...
I had a serious problem 2 summers ago while riding my "Duc PP" ( my user name over on Ducati.ms forum) going down mountain roads and in 2nd gear. It jumped out into Neutral and damn near threw me off the frickin road!
I made a deal with my dealer last spring to wait till this winter to take my bike totally apart and fix the transmission issue, replace the shift drum and anything else that looked out of spec. It was a month long project, and my bike was in many-many pieces. -Covered under warranty-
Since the heads were off the bike and sitting there on a table (9,500 miles), we decided to check all the valves and adjust if needed. The rear exhaust valves were in spec, but off. The mechanic did indeed adjust those to perfect tolerances. We also replaced the 2 cam belts, switched out the antifreeze to the newer/better stuff and replaced the spark plugs. I also had them add the Ducati heated grips, ( I also got a good deal on reduced labor cost) and all is good. We're waiting till the snow is off the Minnesota roads so they can test out the transmission, and I'll hopefully will have in back in my garage by the beginning of April. My bill out the door was $750, but most of that was the heated grips and cam belts, etc
I'll be good now for another 16,000 miles, I hope.....

I took delivery with it so I can't say, but I did ride an early '10 demo with the stock exhaust and the surging was pretty annoying once you noticed and started looking for it. No issues with mine at all. It did melt the stock license plate housing however, but the dealer made good on it with the carbon fiber Ducati piece.

The full-termi does save a ton of weight though. I didn't weigh the cat, but it must be around 10lbs. alone.
