Yeah, you can see the weight of the blinker has caused the stalk to deform a little.
Nice and straight!
I also added some plastic washers per Twerth's link that's he posted to the fender making it rock solid now.
since this thread is pretty dormant nowadays, let me just leave here that I'm interested in buying Ducati Auxiliary LED lights, and a Corbin seat, for a 2015 Multi for myself for Xmas. anyone? Bueller?
I agree. I've had mine for a few years now and I'm super happy with them. An improvement over stock in looks and function.
Sounds like you're getting new ones for Christmas! :)
I'll probably "get" the lights, but I don't want to buy a new Corbin - I'll wait until one pops up somewhere, probably on fleabay. although I'm kinda divided on that - the stock seat on the 2015s are the only stock seats I've ever been comfortable enough on on a motorcycle to think to myself, do I *really* need a Corbin, or is it just habit at this point.
There's a Sargent seat on Ducati.ms right now for $300
much appreciated, but I've tried Sargent (on an FJ-09), and I prefer Corbin. I'll go look, tho
Must be better than the 13' GT seat. I have to use an Airhawk on that.
I used to ride a 2014 GT, and yea, the 2015 seat is light years better. I have mixed feelings about the pre-DVT to DVT engine transition (I miss the pre-DVT grunt a lot), but the rest of the bike is a huge improvement.
I have a set of locks that came with my 2014 Multistudel Pikes Peak and I have no use for them. Would these have gone to the cases? Could they be for another type of case?
Yeah, they are the saddlebag and top case locks, keyed to your bike. But they also look like locks that can be changed to another key.
Im starting to deal with the suspension set-up on my 2016 Pikes Peak, and I have a question... on the rear shock, there's the External Spring Preload knob (Big Black Knob). When an adjustment is made using the "Big Black Knob", should it click? if so, when? at a quarter turn, or full turn? It will go 17 full turns from "soft" stop to "hard stop". Based on it's setting before I started messing with it, it was set up for "touring" on front and rear rebound and compression.
For a 2016, its got very low mileage, 5303 miles. And, its appears to have been very babied... Im gonna change that this spring and summer, so Im trying to get it set up now.
Where is a good place to get fork springs for the 2014? I'm sure the shock spring isn't hard to find, but I'm not sure if the fork springs are tapered like they were in my Hypermotard or if they're normal straight springs?
Do have the owners manual? I should clearly say "turns" or "clicks", because other manuals I've had used that language. Sorry, just don't know specifically on that bike/model and I've had both types. Ohlins remote preload adjusters barely have a detent. My 1200S rear preload just quietly goes "whirrr".
After I worked the adjuster a few times, (my guess is it hadn't been moved since 2016), I could barely feel a slight detent every full turn... Kinda like I was cracking a safe! The compression and rebound adjusters work great, just like new.
I had a 2018 1260S, and it was the "auto-everything" version of suspension, and it worked great. BUT, I had a run-in with a Mule Deer in Utah, and that was all she wrote on the 2018! I found a "like new" 2016 PP that's a lot of fun, and couldn't pass up.
I finally did it
During yet another snowstorm here in the Northeast last week, I had to break the Winter blues by ordering a set of Denali D2s for my 2013 PP (along with the radiator mount brackets from twisted throttle). Shockingly they were delivered on a Sunday, and I couldn't help but throw the heater on in the garage and get to work! Left mount was a bitch to get on, but overall they fit tight and inconspicuously. Lights are BRIGHT and IMO a great size for the MTS. Wiring harness is super high quality and all tucked nicely after removing half the gas tank shroud to route along side the factory loom. Only complaint is the switch is a xhintzy piece of crap and the tiny screws strip when shown a screwdriver, let alone turning them... Come on Denali for $350 please give us a decent switch mount!
Any of you folks ever install a IRC auto blipper on your Multistrada? Im attempting one on my 2016 Pikes Peak, and its giving me problems.... Basically, no down shifting... upshifts great...
Noop. I have a new Husky Svartpilen 401. Believe it or not it has both up and downshift capabilities. Still don't like it or use it. You have to be fully on the gas or off the gas for it to work it's smoothest. It's still not as smooth as shifting with the clutch, at all. And it's hard to not move the throttle, and when you do it's a bit "clunky." So I don't use it. Guess 50 years of riding with a clutch will do that to you. Seems like "tech" just for tech-sake and I gotta think an aftermarket solution is never going to work as well as a bespoke OEM feature? that's my $0.02. Good luck getting is sorted, and good luck not banging on your tranny.
