15,000 Mile Service Cost



Be prepared to either 1) bend over at the 15k mark. The damage from Ducati Newport Beach was $1898. The entire bike has to be disassembled to get at the valves, requiring 16 hours of labor. The valves were all within spec, too....which is good, but also means the major service wasn't even required.

Maintenance intervals might be 2x what they are on the 1098/1198, but the cost is 2x as much.
Thanks from duc

Love Newport Beach but ya think due to your location it may be higher in labor rate than other venues? I usually get a decent price break but a valve job is a valve job I guess! Damn dude, 15k on that bike is outstanding! Long way off. How many sets of tires you been thru btw? All Pirelli?

Proud of ya brother!

Had the option to buy into a pre paid maint plan too which often comes out in your favor, but declined since I get great rates. Curious how labor rates differ across the country.

How can that be sensible ?

It is not sensible to you but it makes sense to Ducati though. I hear this particular saying a lot lately when I question the price about something---"Welcome to the world of Ducati"

Live in a country that is bankrupt and you only have to pay $40 an hour max.

The frameless design that makes the bike so special is going to have drawbacks but hey worthwhile compromise IMHO

Definitely. LA, NY, SF Bay--all the rates are going to be higher due to operating costs being higher. But still--16 hours is still not cheap (unless you live in Gran Canaria!)!

Went through two complete sets of tires--all Dragon Supercorsas. Due to the fact that most of my miles were just out on the open road with very little stopping / starting, the wear was a lot less than one would expect. Flat spots in the tire were minimal, too, and both times I replaced the tires they still had a little life in 'em (Ducati of Minneapolis actually gave me a free rear in support of my adventure). Pirelli has done an excellent job with the center / side compounds, creating very even wear and handled the rain, gravel, sand, sustained high speeds and everything else I threw at 'em.

yeah, not a huge surprise. Just to drop the sump to change the clean out the screen entails removing the headers.

Tho I'm wondering how many panis will ever see 15k miles.

So did you have an intermediate service? My dash is telling me the next service is at 12,000km (7,500km) - if so how much did that cost?

I just turned 10k. Lucky for me I had a motor replaced at 5500 so I get a little reprieve.

I think I paid under $400 for the 7,500 service (Toronto). Albuquerque it is for the 30K service!

There are few perks for us who live in NM but I guess this is one of them.
