Does anyone know if you're supposed to replace the idler pulleys along with the belts?

I don't believe so. If the bearings are still smooth it should be good to go. I haven't seen our pulleys, but the bearing may be replaceable.

ETA: just had a look in the parts diagram. DRAWING 008 - DISTRIBUZIONE in the engine section shows the bearings being held in with a circlip.

Just size the bearing when you have it off, and get one from your favorite bearing place.

I Ride: Triumph Thruxton R.Ducati 916 foggy rep, NC30 Honda, RD350 YPVS F1, Ducati HyperStrada
Just done the 18000 mile service.
Lucky all valve clearence where in spec.
Replaced the clutch cable at same time.
Clutch feels so much lighter.
Also note that if you want to just replace belts they can be done without the need to remove tank and plugs. Just remove front header and belt covers. Put bike in 6th gear and turn engine with the rear wheel.

My clearances were in spec when I had mine apart at 15k, but 4 of them were at the edges of the spec. I plan to tear back into it this winter since I'm now at 20k to move them all back to the middle of the spec.

The tank is not hard at all to pull, and I recommend taking it out when doing belts. It also provides the perfect opportunity to check the air filter, since that is on the same service interval.

I would add a disclaimer to this.

I replaced my spark plugs a week ago and removing the tank was a pain because I tried to do it exactly the way that the service manual states. In the end, after figuring out and doing these other steps, it was quite easy, even with a full tank of gas:

- Remove fairings
- Remove ECU and battery
- Remove key lock cover
- Remove the front mounts for the gas tank
- Unscrew and put aside the seat lock
- Disconnect fuel pump and all lines
- Then remove the tank... easy peasy.

That seat lock really gets in the way putting the tank back in. Takes a bit of wrangling to get past it again.
I didn't disconnect my fuel lines. There's a load of slack in them, enough to turn the tank sideways and rest it where the seat should be.

Oh yeah, I removed that too but forgot to list it.

I've edited my previous post to include it.
