New to me 2014 Monster 696 ABS

Recently purchased my first Ducati. Boy is it hard to get parts. I have a dealer nearby, but I have had to special order a ton of stuff for my Monster in the 1 month I have owned her. This is my first bike over 350cc’s. I’m excited for the adventures ahead.

Congrats! Dealers typically sell parts and accessories mostly for bikes that are about 3 years old or less. Once a bike hits 5+ years, dealers tend to stock fewer parts for them, and both factory and aftermarket production of those parts slow as well. Enjoy your new Monster!

Thanks TheOther996s. I appreciate the tips. So far the dealer has been super helpful and I've found some online sources for things like timing belts.
Super thankful this form exists. Thanks for helping to moderate it.

Cheers,
Jason

Enjoy. If it is like the 1200 the belts are supposed to be changed every 5 years.
