    Change the spacer

    The SW mototec spacers fit the CRG arrows like a champ. 20161022_122450.jpg

    Also the rottwieler Click a roll plates let you mount the mirrors on the support bar further forward so you can roll them completely behind the handgard.

    sorry if I misunderstand, but do you really think of this as a problem, it running cool? why would hotter be better?

    I don't believe that it's a problem at all. Ducati have to know of the operating temperature, and if they wanted it to run hotter they'd use a different thermostat.

    This morning a guy pulled up and asked me about my 1200 MTS. He mainly had reliability questions, at which I gave him my usual speech about how good and trouble free bike had been for years. Also told him not to look at forums too much and read books on "known issues", "common problems" and "brilliant solutions when nothing is right out of Italy"..within 10min after leaving, I noticed my shifter spring go. Shifter just sags. Nope, unlike people I read about online, I was not stuck in 2nd or 5th 30 miles from home, but I was pretty far and got back just fine shifting back and forth until I "found" the gear.

    New springs are cheap but I made it expensive by ordering the works from Factory Pro guy. Should be here Thursday, I guess gives me time to research what tool will I need to jump in there...hopefully it goes well.

    Be careful, don't get them to hooked. When they get their license they tend to claim them as their own... :)

    so every-time I try and use this outlet on the dash I blow a fuse. Has anyone replaced this with a usb or have any experience tracing a fault at this location?

    It’s a Ducati! Of course maintenance is expensive:)

    I wonder if my slowly leaking clutch (bleed every 700-1000 miles or lever goes to the bar) is lines. I’m sure I haven’t replaced mine in 8 years
