Hi Colly. Did you find the source of your rattle. I have exactly the same sound you described. Almost sounds like a piston or rings rattling if that makes sense.

Just had a washer disintegrate during a ride today and the rattling was driving me nuts! Is there a more permanent solution to this than constantly replacing those plastic/fiber washers?

You need 4 each time you replace them. Maybe once a year or so isnt a big deal. A few dollars and a few minutes and voila. Ducatis are built by genius-passion-fairies in Neverland. You must accept their intricacies and idiosyncronicities and adopt them into your heart, faults and niggles along with their sexy pizzaz. This philosophy is the same as taming a dragon.

Well, the washers on my 998's heat shield have lasted 17 years without failing. They are part number 85210721A (green) instead of 85210721B (black). Of course, they're 3x more expensive, which could be an indication of their durability. There's a reason why modern Ducati's are so cheap these days compared to what they used to sell for. I'll see if they fit without the green being visible.

LOL - because Ducati is famous for its heritage of reliability and build quality.

No, but most manufacturers IMPROVE their reliability and build quality over the years.

Ducati is now on par with the Euro bikes - a massive improvement as they have all stepped up their game. Maybe not up to the Asian makers, but good. Very happy with my strada, and Ducati has been good with goodwill repairs where there is a known issue. Anyhow - onwards and forwards... And I had a rattle and replaced the washer with a spare oil change crush washer. LOL

Biggest gamble for me was the motor. It was brand new and I knew Duc's were finicky, historically. Rattles and switch gear issues can happen to any make/ model.

The motor has exceeded my expectations. I flog it daily and it just keeps delivering. 17K miles and I still love winding it out and hearing it thunder.

And now my rear reflector under the license plate has partially fallen out. Those clips seem to leave too much free play and the reflectors are all rattling. Never noticed until I went back to the stock exhaust. Is there a way to remove the clips to space out the tangs a bit further for a more snug fit? The post of the rear reflector broke, so it's garbage, and I just used side cutters to snap off the other post.
