This thread is mostly for Ducati owners that have done a first 6500 miles or more Valve Adjustment Service. Were valves within specs or did you had to be adjusted?? How long you think can go when bike new without it?? I'm asking only because I got a chance to buy 1198S with 10,000miles on it, owner neglected 6500miles Valve Service, his excuse was he doesn't abuse the machine and no track days. Advise !!!!!! Should I take a risk and buy it or stay away. I got no experience on a topic so any input appreciated.
