    Hi, firstly I must say how good it feels to be back on a Multi... 1000, 1200 & now the 950, have played with other bikes in between where you think "it's ok" or "not bad" then somehow I just drift back to a Ducati. Collected her Sunday, a white 2017 excellent condition with 7.5k miles on the clock, loads of goodies & had the Desmo service this year (owners mistake) so good to ride even through the snow that the BBC didn't mention when I looked at the forecast.

    There is however one issue that was immediately apparent and it looks like it's a common one - the clutch, I managed to stall three times manoeuvring to get into the garage last night, is this something I have to learn to live with having looked at a few threads it seems this might be the case, I've never experienced anything that sharp in many years of riding.

    No doubt questions have been raised with Ducati, I wonder what their take or solution is?

    Otherwise it's great to have a Duke back in the garage.

    Dr Rob - unfortunately you just got to live with it or change the bike for the newer version with the hydraulic clutch. I have had my 2017 bike from new and it hasn't changed at all - you just got to warm it up for a couple of minutes before starting off and then its fine

    Welcome! The 950, even our 'old' ones are great, once warmed up :) My wife and I both have them, and these tips may help, soon enough you wont even notice :)

    1) Let bike warm up at least until it's reading temp in degrees.
    2) After step 1, while on bike, back out of garage, or simply roll forward/backward a bit - While it's in gear - with clutch lever pulled in.
    3) Ride :)

    Hope that helps! Welcome, and enjoy the 950.

    - Nick
