Sweet, thanks. I'll be using that when I get to the Desmo service, so it's much appreciated.

Great thread & pics. Question, how do you get the exhaust front pipes / header off? I’m stuck. Do both pipes have to be undone at where they meet the cylinder head? Do they come off as one piece, or is it possible to somehow remove only the front cyclinder pipe? Any help or pics appreciated. Googled but can’t find anything

Edit ignore - I just reread first post properly!

What does everyone use to measure the tension frequency of the belts? Any particular good app to use? I might as well change my belts now as the bike is apart. The bike only has 13000kms but its 4 years old now so I guess they should be changed :0

I used the Gates belt tuning app on my mobile, it works well.

I've been researching this and one thing you should replace at least every other belt change are the lock nuts holding the tension adjuster pulley. http://ca-cycleworks.com/ca-, products/timing-belts/m8locknut

These lose appx. 1/3 of their locking ability with each use according to ca cycleworks.

They also have an excellent belt replacement video series on you tube.

Little trick

So, first time doing timing belts. Great instructions here. Thank you very much.
I have no special tools and I've never wrenched on a Duc before, but I'm not easily intimidated, so off I went.
Took the long route by the way, I wanted to get down into it, you know, get touchy feely for my own knowledge.
Anyway, going smoothly and have found a little tidbit. On the vertical intake cam, it does want to jump off the spring. I used the tank mounting screw, the long stainless one that goes through the rubber mounts, and buried it into the end of the cam. It's the right thread.
Because of the length, the 5mm allen wrench pretty much clears the frame. This let me control the bugger to get the belt on correctly. Then just backed it out.
By the way this is a 2014 and only 5k miles , doing this because of age only. They look ok, but the horizontal measured at 72 ish HZ, the vertical around 90. I figured it was a good call as the lower looked to be tired.
Happy riding and happy 4th for all us 'mericans!!!!
