My gear selector lever now feels like a dead fish -- no springiness.
I'm guessing the spring inside the gearbox has broken or somehow worked loose.
I was just out giving the bike a run and flicking through the gears and then found it hard to get it back into first, with the lever all loose.
I can still find neutral and get it into second and third and down again to neutral. It goes back into second from neutral with a nasty clunk.
Managed to get the bike home and I'll take it to the workshop next week. Hopefully it won't be costly to repair.
Anyone else suffered a gear selector malfunction? Was it relatively simple to fix?

Top advice Apollo 2...!

Just what these forums are for.....
Totally agree! Thanks Apollo. I've copied your note and sent it to the Ducati service manager.
They have some good mechanics at Ducati Singapore, so it should be a simple job for them. But I think this will be the first time they've had to do this on a Desmo, so all advice/guidance is very welcome.

Postscript. It was the gear selector spring that was broken. All good now. Had to wait a couple of weeks for the part to arrive. The spring cost SGD$126, or about USD$93.
While I was there, I had the new tail-light fitted (with a 20 pct dealer discount it still cost USD$360). Luckily the old one is repairable, with only one of the plastic lugs cracked.
