600mi service

so just hit 600 mi service and since there isnt a dealer within 200 miles of me, i was wondering if anyone knew how to clear off the service message you get.

VDST tool should fix that for ya... I suggest you purchase your own for future oil changes and stuff.

I would be cautious of doing that. Ask guys on here but I think you have to have that record in order to maintain the warranty. Could be wrong.

As long as it is documented and you can prove it (receipts) then warranty is not an issue.

VDST a very good investment. You could do other things with it than just resetting oil change light. I was very pissed when I found out that I needed to bring my bike to the dealer anytime that light turns on or if I want to reset my tps. WTF!

Doesn't it only come on @ 600mi Service and @ 7500/15,000 Service??? I doubt it comes on everytime you need an oil change.

Now, the real question is. How much is the dealer charging to remove the SERV notification. Considering the VDST is about $230 US, wouldn't it be cheaper to just go to the dealer a couple times than it would be to putting down the cash for something that you'll only use twice MAYBE three times???

Check with the man, LT at Desmo Times to buy one. You can also go to the actual manufacturer of the part but this guy is a true Ducatista.

http://www.desmotimes.com/

If that page doesn't open up to the VDST, click on Tools on the left side of the Main Menu.

Another thought to solve this gentlemen: The vaunted Microtec ECU...

OP stated that he lives 200 miles away from the nearest dealer. Depending on how he has to transport his bike there, time and effort, and fuel mileage, buying his own VDST may be way more cost effective!
