    Oil change

    I am ready to do my 2nd oil change. I just noticed in the manual that I need to clean the mesh filter assembly. I didn't see this on the first oil change and I didn't see a screen filter. Can anyone tell me what I am missing or where I should look?  :002:

    Hi Kevin - I'm not sure TBH - oil & oil filter would be what I'd change, although as I'm still in warranty the dealer has been doing that for me.  I see what you mean looking at the manual, there is a separate line from "Change engine oil and filter" where it says "Clean the engine oil mesh filter assembly".  It can't be hard, if only we knew where it was.... :174:

    Think I might have it......found mention of it under the Multistrada 1200 forum - on the 1200 at least, the mesh filter assembly is located next to the main oil drain plug.  Here is a link to the relevant forum page http://www.mts1200.info.gridhosted.co.uk/index.php?threads/engine-oil-change.154/ - it's about half way down if you follow the procedure for oil change.

    ducati_al, I just removed the skid plate, and can not see anything that would be connected to a scree. On my 71 500 r/t. the screen is part of the drain plug. I will get the 950 up on the lift in the next couple of days (waiting for my oil shipment from amazon). I will also call the service manager and see if I can get any answer from her. I will let you know if I find out anything.

    OK - be interesting to know what you find.  If only there was a workshop manual readily available.... :232:

    I have not done the mesh filter as I decided to let the dealer do it but I have a copy of the 2016 Muti 1200 Enduro shop manual that shows it. THe 950 is probably the same. I will post screen captures.





    Hope this helps.

    The engine on the 950 is a different configuration to the 1200. The filter is mounted on the front  with the filter plug hole on the side with a small drain plug under weath, they are two different engines with the 950 coming directly from the super mortard :821:

    Thanks for clearing that up. It is a shame we cannot get a service manual for the 950 Multi. I will look for one for the Supermotard.

    The mesh filter is on the side of the engine as Grahew says. This is a really good clip showing it.


    I think there may be another filter underneath the engine close to the drain plug. I've seen some older descriptions where they take this out, but Ducati seem to have a policy of moving the filter around depending on the engine size  :015: I can't see why they would need two so perhaps it's not on the MTS950 engine. However there is what looks like another plug type affair  :027:

    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

    The Multi 950 has the same engine as the Hyper 939.  Service manual can be downloaded here:

    https://workshop-ducati.blogspot.com/2017/01/ducati-hyperstrada-2016-repair-workshop.html

    Oil change from monster 821 should be the same.

    On Youtube do a search for "Ducati Monster 821 | Oil Change"

    All 3 plugs torque at 42N/M (min 38 max 46), Oil Filter 11 N/m, Mesh filter hand-tight only.
