    Multi 950 S for Off road

    Hey guys! I am new at the forum so I will like to hear your opinions on somethings I have on my mind right know regarding my bike. I have an MT 950s from some months back and I REALLY love the bike. I mainly use it a couple of times a week to the office (4 miles drive) and on the weekends to ride on trips, sometimes with my gf, this rides are usually on tarmac and are about 250 miles. The last few weeks I have started to go with some friends in some light (and no so light) off road. Currently my bike is stock. I am thinking about getting my bike more fit for off road rides, since I am really enjoying it and probably will make a trip this year with some off road and camping. That being said, what mods will you recommend making the bike? Have thought about the enduro package and tires . Is the enduro package worth it? Or should I order after market protection engine guards and lights. I have also thinked about the seat, which hurts after 45 mins of riding any recommendations?. Also the break fluid  reservoir from the bike vibrates A LOT, is this common on the mt950? Sorry for the questions guys but I dont know anybody with this bike and I have a lot of question haha. Thanks!

    Hey there from Colorado.
    I do some light off road riding, and I would suggest for sure the Skid (bash) plate and engine bars.
    I also added Michelin Anakee Adventure tires. Did great for traction, only 6K mikes out of then though.

    Nice. For now I think ill be doing some light off road riding as well. I agree that for me to keep doing the off road I need the Skid and engine bars for sure, did you get the ones from ducati or any other after market brands you recommend?
    On the tires 6k is good, I was thinking about getting the TKC80 in the front and Mitas 07 in the back but probably would have less millage than the Michelin Anakee Adventure. Not sure yet what should I get.

    The money you save by getting extra mileage from $250 tyres on an $17,500 bike is going to be pretty tough to justify.

    I had a mate who used to boast about getting over ten thousand miles out of a set tyres. He didn't like to mention that it took him nearly four years because they felt so horrible he just didn't enjoy riding that bike. I really recommend you use the best/stickiest/most appropriate tyres you can afford and change them early and often. As a wise man once told me, if you want to enjoy biking, don't skimp on tyres, brakes or petrol.

    I been very happy the the Pirelli scorpion rally (both the non STR and the STR).  Also the new 'dunlop trail mission (10k mi) has great reviews and I have friends that used them on off road cross country tours (mini CDT).  Motoz are a heavy duty, deep lug tire that get about 10-13k miles. 

    Isn't the front brake reservoir metal and part of the mirror, brake lever clamp??

     I did not get Ducati skid plate or engine bars, I don't remember the names of them, but were recommended by folks on this forum. Both came from Germany.

    hahaha that couldn't be more true Paul.



    Thanks David, maybe it is SW-Motech. Recently talked with the ducati dealership and they do not have any enduro packages available in the US. Will have to go to do some research before making a purchase.

    Appreciate the input guys.

     I went and looked, they are both from IBEX. The bash plate covers the front cylinder very well and both were easy to install and VERY affordable. Took about 2 weeks to get them in once ordered.

    I have the Ibex skid plate & Heed crash bars waiting to be installed. Hope to get that done this weekend. Will let you know how it goes.
