I think it costs about $50 each.Originally posted by limpeiwah@Nov 23 2004, 10:40 PM
neo how much does a timing belt change cost? what are the items that need servicing/replacing for a major service?
Servicing is like any other bike, but because Ducati's have no valve spring, the valves don't go back to its original position on its own. Therefore, the valves need to be adjusted very deligently. For Japanese bikes, if the valve clearances are not good, at most you loose power as the valves don't open as much as before. For Ducatis, it can mean the valves don't close properly, or close too tight.
As its a V-twin, vibrations are higher than inline4s (which is good), but carbs can go out of sync faster.
Other than that, its Spark plug, engine oil, oil filter, air filter etc... Same as any bike.
