And for anyone wondering... no, absolutely nothing has gone wrong with it. It's been through plenty of oil/filter changes, lots of tires, etc; only dealer service has been to do the shifter return spring recall.

One year three months (2012 XC)...I'm on the same pace.

Even though I could get rid of that wrench with my Dealer Tool in a couple minutes, I have grown rather fond of it so I let it stay.

Yeah. That's pretty funny. My 2012 has 18K+ on it and has the wrench for 12Kmiles Its making a funny clicking sound. I should post up some audio and see if anyone has any ideas.

Wrench display.

I believe the displayed wrench shows which owners do their own maintenance.

It's a symbol of pride. Embrace the wrench.

Long live the wrenchers!



But if I had an affordable way to turn it off I would.

I have no problem with the wrench either. But I stopped in to my dealer to check out Ducatis and they wheeled the tiger in, put the latest tune in it and reset the service indicator. NC. I thought that was nice of them. Bike runs great.

He did say "affordable". IMO 25 for a code for each bike isn't affordable. 199 for unlimited? Not when there's TuneECU for free. And yes, I do know that you can't turn off the SPANNER with TuneECU.................yet.

TuneEcu can't open the abs modulator for a complete fluid flush either - not an issue here as I don't have abs. Thought tuneecu would have had the spanner reset by now to be honest.

I prefer to think of it as a bone reminding me that I'm hungry and need to find an excellent lunch stop.

Sorry for the thread drift, but I'd like to know which one of the Dupont lubes you are using on the chain?

There is only one Multi-use lubricant (spray and liquid) amongst those dupont products.
