So my niece knocked my bike over and got it stuck in gear. i brought it to a shop and they said it was a bent shift rod and that i needed to drop the entire motor to change it. They wanted like $4,000 which sounds crazy to me. Then one of my friends who worked as a ducati mechanic said that he doesnt need to drop the motor to fix it. Has anyone else encountered this? i barely dropped it. i mean it didnt even scratch. Do you need to drop the motor to change the shift rod?
its a 2013 ducati hypermotard evo sp 1100. Am i crazy to lete someone other than ducati work on it or are they trying to rip me off? thoughts? i live in NYC btw

I'm not sure your model may be different...

You don't have to drop the motor on the super bikes you just drain the oil then open up the engine side cover (that take a special puller on the alternator side. If you have access to all the bolts on the side cover I would think you do not have to.

If your'e in a hurry you can get away without dropping the oil - just lay the bike over.
