:eek1 Small Leak in Engine Case
what'd you hit?
Obviously the engine case.
Thank you! I'll be here all week!!!
It's great if you can reliably access pure gas, but if you only can acquire it some of the time and not others, it will buy you very little. I filled with ethanol-free at every opportunity, and those opportunities were obviously more frequent until my local station gave up on it (without mentioning it to the public). Within a few months I was suffering the symptoms. Actually, I think my bike's tank started swelling even before that, it's just that I was too unwary to take notice. When on the road you have little choice but to take what's available. The problem needs resolution.
I'm going Caswell with this one.
Does anyone know if the Ducati heated grips are plug n play? And how well do they work? I have a 2010 .
I've got the heated grips as standard on the 2013 MTS; they have 3 heat levels and are very effective.
They operate off the starter button, so not sure how easy/difficult they are to connect yourself without an instruction sheet (many Ducati OEM accessories come with installation diagrams, not sure about the electrical stuff though....)
The Ducati heated grips work well. I use them on a regular basis. Low is good for when there is a little nip in the air. Medium is good for when things are turning cold. High is good for frying eggs or really cold days.
Unfortunately, the grips are not plug and play. Once you put them on and connected up, you will have to go to the dealer for get them functional. The on board computer has to be told that there are now heated grips. If you are near a service interval and plan to let the shop do it, that might be a good time to have them activate the grips.
Thanks for the info.
literal minded, I actually meant what debris/hole/etc did he hit to take out his engine case.
Just use a heavy weight oil...it'll be fine...
This might even require Motor Honey or Stop Leak. I hear that stuff works wonders!
...I think it's the factory front fender extender... Keep lookin'
Seriously good luck! Watcha up to?
I had mine sort of like that last summer installing the Power Commander - all fairings plus lots more off, but the engine was still in the bike. I could never get that f&$@ing air box off tho... Anyone had any success with that? I could strangle the guy who wrote the manual and said "slide it back and off" or something to that effect... No, it ain't that easy!
Anyway, good luck with it and keep us posted.
Cheers - DD

Stock hand heaters are great. Very worthwhile. Great indicator on the dash. A little difficult to operate since the starter button is recessed.
Install is terrible. Have to pull the full fairing, fuel tank, fuel lines, fuse box. Once you get the it all apart, install takes just a minute to plug in. Then re-install. Once it's back together you have to have the dealer flash it.
Giant nuisance but glad I did it. The grips on my KTM work as good or better but aren't quite as comfy and the indicator sucks. The advantage is they were a third the cost and took ten minutes to install, compared to all day.
Snapped the flywheel end off the crankshaft...supposition is that there was bad heat treating. Covered under warranty and they threw in the 15k service for free.
I am having 7.5 front springs and a heavier rear spring put in.
Has anyone here done any serious offroad mods? Fairing delete/replace, spoke wheels, etc?
I'm not talking about farkles and touratech add-ons, I mean serious rally type modifications.
I love the pics of the TKC80's on the Multi and I'm looking for a little more inspiration to go further than that.
Just put the TKC's on 150 miles ago. I haven't had a chance to do more than a forest road so far but they handle the pavement pretty well for a knobbie. The only quirk is that the 2nd gear clutch up wheelies have turned into rolling burnouts due to the new knobs..
If you were to put a 19in front... the traction control would go beserk,,,?
