I might borrow them off you please mate, KJM just quoted me £600 plus for a service/belt change.
So will probably just do it myself.
Just need to get the belts now

Bloody hell - owning a Ducati is complicated - serviced my CB1000R yesterday - oil & filter then adjust and lube chain - clean the bike ! - Honda - press and go !

I do like Ducatis but they do seem to need a lot of tlc

Just put the Same thing in my watch list. I refuse to pay those prices for something I can do for under £100.

10/40w seems to be the norm on the forums. Personally I'm going to stick some power 1 in it.

You have to do oil and filter? Pffft... What a waste of time... just use the bus, no maintenance on them :)

And is your side stand about as much use as a chocolate fireguard?
mine seems completely unsuitable but looks like the original part.
Trying to find info on a better replacement but no joy as yet

Mine is the standard part that's for sure, my only complaint is that it holds the bike almost completely vertical! Daren't leave it alone in a slight breeze haha!
