Rear Sprocket Flange nuts keep falling off

A little worried because these nuts keep getting loose and one of them fell i already have the replacement but that i got from Ducati but, does anyone have the proper torque spec for these in Foot Pounds? And how could i bring the screw back out, the one that lost its M10 nut seems to be backing into wheel?

Iím assuming this is what it should look like?

Did you buy this bike used???
If not, whatever mechanic put it together out of the crate didn't know what the heck he's doing!!! Where's the paint markers on all the nuts that line up with the mark on the bolt???


32 ft-lb says the Service Manual +/-5%

lol nope i bought it brand new from Chicago, from a garbage dealer for sure because the treatment i got was not great, but i torque all of them down to 32 ft and even then one of them fell off and then the screw where the nuts goes is kinda recessing back into my rear wheel??? wtf.

If the bike is under warranty you shouldn't do anything but have the dealer come pick it up and fix it under warranty.
If it's out of warranty bring it to the dealer and tell them you're only paying half of the bill to fix it, if anything. If that doesn't work find the next best shop to bring it to and have them remove the wheel and check the cush drive.

@Vicati - Ohh, and you should download the Service Manual to educate yourself on the parts involved.

If its under warranty any dealer will service it.


EDIT: If the bike still has valid factory warranty, is what I meant to say...

The studs going into the Cush drive should have an Allen head on the top to allow them to be screwed into the sprocket carrier. You won't see it until you remove the carrier from the rim. I would suggest removing and reassembling those studs and nuts using blue or red Loctite. Make sure everything is clean before reassembly. Not a difficult job, especially if you have an impact.
