I'm confused.WhenI did my own oil change, I just matched whatever size tool to the bolt and removed it. Do you not have a complete set of tools?Alright, I'm tired of watching comically bad oil change videos.
Can somebody tell me, once and for all, the size bolts I need to pull the oil filter cover off of a 2017 959?
He was asking for the size of the bolts used to extract or pull the cover out - Once you remove the M6 bolts that hold the cover down you thread M8 x 1.25 bolts into Each hole on the cover itself as the holes are actually threaded themselves. This will push the cover out as they won’t fit into the M6 holes on the engine or the bolts themselves can be used like little handles to pull the cover off.The oil filter cover screws are M6x1 length 20mm. FYI you tq them down to 14nm
The oil drain plug is M14X1.5 it should be tq to 14nm.
FYI you should use the Ducati 3 bond and fresh crunch ring. Always change our the 2 o rings on the oil filter cover.
I hope this helps. These are the actual specs from Ducati.
