Hello ducati fans.
could anybody please show me detailed pics and steps on how to remove the top radiator from my 2016 ducati 959? I want to replace the spark plug but Im having trouble removing the radiator guard.
Also do I need to drain the coolant as well?
Thank you very much

Exactly how do you remove the radiator without draining the coolant is beyond me? That would be amazing! Youtube is your friend. Lots of tutorial for radiator removal for 959.

I actually want to replace my coolent anyway. I just need some guidance on how to remove the top radiator bracket in order to access the spark plug. Youtube does not help.

Sorry to hear that. I hope it works out. This manual always helps me when I tinker with the Duc, if you don't have one already.


Cheers!

I can't give step by step, it's been a while since I did it. But I do know it's much easier to remove the radiators and brace as a unit. Very straightforward though once fairings are off. There's a drain plug on the lower radiator.

+1^ As mentioned above, the radiators will come off as a unit and it's advisable to remove them that way. You will lose some fluid, but if handled with care most of it will remain. No need to drain it unless you want to.
