Sounds like you have been unlucky with the bike, apart from a recall no problems I hope you had it all fixed under warranty.

Funnily enough my horn has gone a bit intermittent. I gave the switch a bit of a spray with WD40 and it seems ok now.
My reservoir looks a bit leaky but it might be over-spill after the service.
The exhaust damper operating cable snapped which they "cured" under warranty by fitting a kidder. They reasoned it would eventually stick and become a pain in the bum anyway.
That's it apart from going through brake pads/disks like they were made of cheese probably because of the crap weather and I commute on the bike so use the brakes a lot.
If I knew what I was doing I would probably stop doing it.

Screen cracking at mounting points and leaking front brake master cylinder, both of which were replaced under warranty, without any hassle. Other than that the bike has been perfect. Long may it continue!

Front brake reservoir looked a bit damp round the edges when I got the bike out from hibernation.  Got the technician to have a look during the 1st service and he found that the seal was twisted and that there was some air in the system. All sorted now but this weeping appears to be an issue with a few members here 🤔

Hi,

I have problems with my clutch. Its not possible to use the 1st gear in cold conditions without stalling the engine.
I had two tries in the service to find a solution, one with the official Ducati technician, but only with a minimal improvement.

I made the decision to give the bike back to the dealer.

Did they accept the bike back - did you get your money back?

For sure.

To say it simple, the law in Germany says, that the dealer has to be given two chances to find a solution, otherwise its possible to give the product back.
In practice its more difficult, but the dealer was willing to cooperate and I bought as compensation a MTS 1260 S.

The topic with the clutch is not unknown by Ducati.
There is in Germany, by the most popular Bike Magazin "Motorrad", currently a MTS 950 in a fatigue test with a absolut identicaly problem.
Ducati tried by this bike in the meantime for roundabout 5 trials to find a permanent solution, without success.
The problem seams to be a to high oil pressure for the clutch.

I don't believe they'll find a solution for this point.

That was the reason for me to  say "good bye", although its a very nice bike.
