I have a maintenance manual for 2014. I don't know yet how much that is different. dblhelx PM me.

BTW here are the photos of the plate holder. Not sure why the plate holes don't line up nor why the bottom of the holder is cut. Any thoughts?

I didnít realize exactly what you were asking for, but Iíd be pissed if a dealer hacked off the bottom of my plate holder like that! Really?!? ďYou couldnít even do a remotely decent job?!? You just BROKE it off?!? Wow!Ē

There WAS a reflector attachment point there. Iíd thought about cutting my first Monster, but... safety first and Iím weird like that... adding a reflector to an already existing, but empty location.

WHAT??? Already? I think it is an amazing motorcycle. Best I have owned so far. Good luck with your sale if you do go that route.

That's ashamed you're thinking of giving up this beauty. But its not at a loss because someone else will get a turn to enjoy it. Three months ago 10 were advertised on CycleTrader, now there are 3. It will sell given time and a buyer ready to buy.


How did you get an extended warranty if you don't mind me asking?

Yeah good point, all listed are new. I cant think it will really change how much you could sell for.

Take a look under the seat, where the gas tank attaches to the frame. Those two tabs are painted the same color as the tank. On mine the tabs are chipped on the top. It looks the chip is through the primer to bare metal. Im not seeing the seat is making any contact with it. Humm if i find stuff like this, oh boy what else will I find. Anyone else this happen to?

Iím still waiting on all the parts to make my bike whole. My seat cowl had overspray that was visible immediately when i picked up the bike. Still waiting for the replacement cowl to be completely set up and delivered.

Ducati is great, but I have had to warranty every new Ducati I have purchased straight from the showroom floor. Every time it is due to fit or finish of the paint.

My last bike had chips in the tank, rippled clear coating and a cracked rear cowl... from the showroom.

The other bike I could have taken I found a hair clear coated to the tank. They ended up replacing both at no charge, but still a total hassle when buying a premium bike for top dollar.

Post a pic of them once they are on please. Iím curious to see how they look.

Iím still considering doing the DucaBike clear clutch cover to this bike. It would look so tasty with an all black clear cover and a gold pressure plate. Iím about 1 weekend ride away from my 600 mile service, which the dealer threw in due to all the warranty issues I had experienced.

I have been planning to put on the Rizoma Eccentric pegs, but dam if these stock position ones donít feel dam close to perfect.

Ahh, who am I kidding? Iím putting on the pegs and the CCC. Guess Iíll call the dealership tomorrow. I can justify it by the money Iím saving on the 600 mile service.

My weekend project will be to get my brake activated garage door open working. Double tap the brake in the driveway... presto, open garage.

Check out OMGWTFXU's post on the accessories page. I think it looks really neat on the Monster.

After talking with the parts guy who I trust highly, he recommended to stay away from the red or gold exterior as they tend to fade quickly. Iím planning Black on Black with a gold pressure plate and Black spring retainer. It should pop the gold and make it stand out without clashing since it wonít quite match the ÷hlins or frame. I reserve the right to change my mind on the color combo.

Called Ducati NA and they will be taking care of plate holder and paint chips. The Dealer needs to look it over and take photos to submit. Dealer will also do a look over to catch anything else while its there. I'll have to return once all the parts are in. So fun.

See below. For some reason only the oil cooler and engine guard fit. The radiator cover did not. Its too small. Its so tight I can't get the plastic trim pieces back on. Waiting for reply from Evotech on their thoughts.
