    Hi everyone. Just got a 2017 950 Multisrada and I have to say it is awesome - when it's warmed up!?

    My initial question, which I expect is on here somewhere, is the gears being so clunky and hard to change down when it's cold - is there a quick fix as I think this is a fairly common problem?

    Any tips will be gratefully received 👍

    Welcome Simon.

    I suppose you don't have the 950S?
    In that case you have a cable operated clutch, you could start with checking the free play on your lever.
    If there's too much play, your clutch may not come completely free with may cause a difficult gearchange.
    When things warm up, everything goes a lot smoother, but there's always that cold start.

    Just a tip.

    Have a lot of fun and safe km's on your Multi.
    Het kan altijd platter...

    No just the standard 950, but thanks for the advice. From what I have read on this forum it is pretty common and the best things to do seem to be to leave it warming while you put on your coat and helmet and pumping the clutch 15 to 20 times before pulling away.

    Both of which are a pretty poor show considering the price of these bikes, you think they would be able to sort it 🙄

    They bring out a new model and expect you to spend five grand plus upgrading.

    That's vehicle sales speak for sort it.

    Just spoke to the mechanic at the Ducati dealership in Alton. Really helpful guy who basically confirmed everything you have all said about this issue - which is quite reassuring 👍
