i've finally purchased my first ducati and i couldn't be happier.

just wanted to take a second to mention a couple of things that might come in handy. 1) to adjust your front brake and/or clutch lever you simply need to push froward on the lever and then turn the screw left or right to increase or decrease its distance from the handgrip. 2) how to access the menu. from the left handgrip depress and hold the button located beneath the turn signal for 3 seconds.

on another note does anyone know why in the world ducati recommends 132 foot pounds of torque on the rear axel nut. seems pretty excessive. almost requires an impact wrench to simply break it free. i would seriously doubt that 85-90 lbs wouldn't be more than adequate. but that's just me.

Welcome to the family! Yes, it took a 4' breaker bar to remove the nut when my rear wheel got changed the first time - don't use a power tool, you could break your wrist if you're not ready for it!

Welcome!

A cordless impact wrench is a good investment!
