I Ride: anything I can get my hands on
a bit off topic...

Bruder, your English is better than my German, even though I was fairly fluent in it as a child. It has been many years since I had anyone around to practice it on.

What's left has been useful though, I once met a Belgian tourist at a scenic overlook in Utah, who spoke no English. I asked "Sprechen Sie Deutsch?"; she replied "Ja ein Bisschen," and we had a brief conversation. Here's a pic she took of me.

@zippy49

I like the bike really Top and with a heart!

I think most important is to know where DUCATI come from and how the quality was in the past! WDW 2016 is the perfect place to see how DUCATI works!
Even you can make a appointment for your Bike for inspection and you can hammer the mechanics with questions and there are many other thinks to do!
Normally the date is coming out in Nov-Dec and it's every 2 years 2016 is the next one!

Update,

Finally I have "Isabella" back (2 weeks at the dealer). Dammit!!!! Anyhow, Ducati has paid for new clutch cable.....YAY!! Dealer will submit request to change out throttle after my naggin' and their testing....hope this gets rectified soon.

Did the 9K service (10500 actual miles), oil/filter/clean and adjust chain/plugs/new clutch cable/check/check/check stuff. Changed out the factory rear tire and installed a Dunlop Roadsmart II. Went for a 200 hundred mile breakfast run w/ the wifey and had no complaints. I was a little worried, as I now have some reliability issues with the bike. What else might fail?? For now all is well.

Oh, I bought the wife the Moto Skiveez underpants to try out. She says it definitely delayed the usual discomfort after 1 hour ride time. We were in the saddle for almost 2 hours. I'll probably get one for me too.

Thank you all for the support/input.

Peace

Bruder, Ill be sure to put a drop of oil at the lever/cable connection as you suggested.

Question to the experts

Hello Bruder,
my last bike (BMW R100 GS) had the same problem with the clutch cable too. (But after around 90.000km 
As I bought the new cable, the dealer told me to NOT put oil on it because of teflonsurface at the inside!

Are you sure that the Duc-clutchcable is an “oldschool one” without teflon?

Greetings from Berlin
Jens

@Jens,

no oil for the cable self, only for the top where you conect clutch lever with the cable just a drop of oil!

Had the same issue while riding last week. But i had few strands on it so could manage up to home and it happened exactly near to the lever end as mentioned earlier by someone here. Spoke to the dealer, he came to my home towed it and replaced it for free and as per him this is a "common fault"

Clutch cable snap

2013 HS purchased new. 1st clutch cable snaps right at crimp 2700mi. Purchase and installed new cable myself, made 4000mi, then snapped on e again right at crimp. Both times snapped on my street on way home. Hmmm, smart cables?

Dealer paid for and installed third cable. During process made slight modification to underside of lever to allow red plastic cover on crimp to rotate within the relief area in lever. So far 3000mi, no issues but we'll see. According to dealer Ducati changing the diameter on the relief on new production and suggesting to dealers to modify existing levers for customers experiencing the issue.
