No. I can't think of any modern engine that would have such a thing. If you are going to work on the Ducati's internals, you should probably invest in a workshop manual first.
Actually there's a couple of modern bikes that I've worked on that have an insert point to lock the crank. There's usually a bolt with a spacer on it, you remove the bolt, take the spacer out, put the bolt back in and as long as the crank is at TDC it will lock the crank.

Only option similar to what you want would be a camshaft locking tool. Locks the camshafts when doing a belt change.

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

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.

Maintenance and Servicing / Engine lock?

I need to lock the engine to do some service work (clutch replace, remove front sprocket). Is there a bolt on the case that will lock the engine at TDC?

I see you are ~20 minutes up the 67 in Ramona, I am just north of Lakeside, the 950 is a charming bike - welcome and enjoy.
