1098 7.5k miles service.
I am here in Dallas, Texas. My 1098 warning light ( yellow Triangle Caution) came on. I called Local Ducati dealer to ask how much the service will cost me. They told me it will cost minimum of $1200 to get it done. Does anyone know what am I getting for the price I am going to pay? They told me I should get almost a brand new bike back. Also, my bike had a lot of bubbles on gas tank. Fuel warning light doesn't work because I ran out of gas twice while riding. I don't mind paying but I just hope to get a lot of done to the motor. Not just oil change, fluids replace or a little things that I can do myself. Any idea questions will help me to get ready to ask them when I get to the dealer. Thanks

Who did you check with? Give Advanced Motorsports a call. Talk to Sofi. She and the crew will take care of you. I promise you that when you get it back, it will be like a different bike!

7500 mi will include:
Fluids change, belts check and tightened if not replaced before the 2 yr mark,, possible plugs changed if needed, valve adjust if needed, reset ecu, pads check/replaced if needed, TPS reset in case the throttle gets "lazy" after a while.
Since your tank is expanded, you might have to wait a couple months for the replacement to come in, if it's still under warranty.
P.S: I only paid $861 at european cyclesports on K ave, plano. But mine is the 848 so it might be different.
Did my own 15k after that.

Firstly, the yellow caution light should not come on as a "Service" indication. The 'Service" message should scroll across the dash on start-up and disappear when the bike fires up. The yellow warning light indicates something is amiss. That said, if it doesn't remain on (turn bike off and re-start) then it sometimes does that (gremlin). Have your mechanic check that out by pulling up the fault codes. If the yellow light remains on, don't run the bike.

As for the 7,500 mile service. Expect the Dealer to do following unless you further advise:

-Change engine oil/filter
-Check engine oil pressure
-Check/adjust valve clearances
-Check and probably replace timing belts (7,500 miles or 2 years-whichever comes first)
-Check and clean air filter
-Sync' throttle bodies and idle speed
-Check and probably replace clutch and brake fluids
-Adjust/lube brake/clutch cables/cold start cable.
-Check brake pads/tyres
-Check drive chain tension etc
-Check clutch pack
-Check coolant and fans operation/lights etc
-Check engine to frame bolts
-Check axle nuts/fuel hoses/forks/rear shock/sprocket(s) retaining bolts/battery/general lube
-Perhaps check/replace spark plugs

As for parts-cam belt replacement will be the most expensive on the list followed by valve shims (if required). Labour is the killer. The above is just an indication. There may be more or less. I'd say $1000-$1200 is a good indication.

If you're mechanically savvy I'd suggest changing out the fluids yourself, you can save a ton of money that way

Thanks you guys for all the informations. I am going to drop mine off Friday. Now, I felt like a PRO when I talk to the shop.

Donger June 12th, 2013 08:52 PM

You'll save some bucks if you drop it off naked (the bike without fairings, that is..)

+1. Awesome shop. I order all my parts from them, even though I am in Houston.

If you can do some of the work yourself..ie: Oil/brake/clutch fluid change/coolant, you can shave a few hundred dollars off your service bill. Thats what I did, and my Service ran me about $800+

Post #2. I dropped off my 1098 just like that, my 7500 miles service was no more than 400US out-the-door. I put the bike on my pickup truck and drop it off at local shop.
