Welcome aboard, very nice bike. I love the color. Would have gotten that color if I didn't have the red one.

I volunteered to help my brother maintain the chain on his Multi 1200. Are there any special tools needed for adjusting the tension? Also, how much slack is recommended?

this is clearly documented in the owners manual. The tools you need are include in the Ducati toolkit.

you can also download the manual from ducati's website. you'll need a spanner and a couple of allen wrenches too.

+1 on the 2nd link. Used it last Sat to do the same on my MTS with a friend of mine.
Be patient removing the rear splash guard. Unscrewing the top bolts is a bit tricky if you don't want to scratch the inside of your rear rim.

Three things Ace:

1. That totally sucks

2. Stay the hell away from my bike. You've got the feces touch mate.

3. I've got good news and bad news. On the MTS12, Ducati's got your back and you'll get it fixed under warranty. On the GS....BMW will tell you all the reasons why it's YOUR fault and not cover a damn thing....you're fooked.

I hope you have a 3rd bike in the garage while you get these mechanical maladies sorted.....

The MTS is two months out of warranty. The GS is a year out of warranty.

I do have a Big Ruckus to ride.

I would say the addition of the side car would exclude warranty anyway !

yeah, you need a new shock ecu

I had this same thing as well, you can ride it like that, and I did for a few thousand miles

this is one of the reasons I purchased and extended warranty on this thing (something I otherwise would never do)

sorry about the BMW, that looks like a cool rig

I bought the MTS a few days to a week before the factory warranty ran out. I stopped at the Duc dealer on the way home from picking up the bike & tried to get in on the extended warranty deal, but the company ended the program early. Outta luck.

So now I've two of the best setups I have ever had out of commission.

What else could go wrong?

DES pre load? Suspension issues?

What kind of MPG does the MTS get?

Ace,

Contact Ducati NA and see if they will warranty it? It seem to be a common problem, and it would not suprize me if they would not do a "good faith" repair for you.

Wouldn't hurt..
