I was wondering what was involved in the maintenance of a 620 monster ? Specifically the fancy desmo valve system. I am an ASE automotive mechanic and was wondering if there were any special tools involved or if I purchased a shop manual if the maintenance would be pretty straight forward ?Is there a need for any type of scan tool to set timing or injectors or stuff like that? I am new to motorcycles and would like to try to cut some of my maintenance cost. BUT, I also know the value of a good mechanic who works on the same system day in and day out.Any input or suggestions would come greatly appreciated.

Check with Chris on this board. He has two web sites: One for information and one for sales. He should be able to answer your questions. He is a frequent contributor. ::)

The maintenance is nothing out of the ordinary. If you picked up a shop manual and you're familiar with bikes, you should be fine.

Chris has a couple of websites - www.ca-cycleworks.com and www.ducatitech.com. Both very good and informative. Also check out www.ducatisuite.com.

Between those two websites and a shop manual you should be able to do just about anything! :D

thank you. Good to know, considering I broke the bank just getting the bike and would rather spend extra money on some goodies rather than service.
