Here's a link for the rear axle nut tool needed if your wanting to tighten your chain. wish I found it before my dealer bent me over
ST891 REAR AXLE NUT TOOL PANIGALE 899/MONSTER 821 - Shift-Tech Carbon

I rang my dealer and asked if they sell the tool and was told no as it's a specialist ducati tool.
They booked me in and said it would probably be a 20 min job and not cost much.
They took 40 mins and handed me a bill of $125 for tightening the chain. :shitfan:

Now my work mate owns a honda and took his bike to the dealer he uses and got them to tighten his chain, they did the job and said "no charge".

I never expected the job to be free but $125 to simply adjust a chain is a silly price to charge.

Bought the one off eBay that is a little kit and sure as hell it ended up stripping first time I used it. However, we all know the torque they put on that thing from factory is absolutely absurd - like 190 ft pds! And it took me to having to break out air tools to get that dam thing off!

Therefore, do as DLIT says and invest in one of the steel pieces out there which will be around for a lot longer in your toolbox my man!

Yup. That's how I learned my lesson. Had to actually bring it to the Duc dealer so they could loosen mine for me as I was in a rush to get my wheel to where I bought my tires to have them mounted. Got a metal one off eBay and I feel better now.
