Reset Oil Change Light

I'm coming up on 9,000 miles and will want to reset the indicator for oil change.

Is this something we can do?

What is the mileage interval programmed into the ECU to alert you an oil change is due?

Would ignoring this (or not re-setting it) invalidate an aftermarket
warranty?

Any thoughts or ideas?

I'm sure this info is in owners manual ... ... I haven't read the whole manual yet, just spot reading here and there.

I think it's something like 3k, 6k, and then 9k from then on out. My bike is still under warranty and the dealer pushes for a 3k interval still, which I'm sure is because they are old school and also, they like my $$$. I'm not hard on the engine, but I'm not always smooth so I suspect once I'm outta warranty and have no need to stay in the dealers good graces (they've been really good to me and a friend on warranty work) I'll probably change it every 6k as I do notice the shifting improves with fresh oil.

Thanks for the comments Nathan. I assume you're using Munroe Motors?
I've known Nick and Matt for over 20 years ... back when both were employees of Jim and Pat Munroe.

If my Marin dealer keeps screwing around I may bring the bike to Munroe's or to my buddy Scott Jenkins who owns Desmoto in the City. I got to know Scott when he managed the BMW dealer in Marin (BMW/Triumph). Now all out of business.

I normally do my own oil changes between 3K to 4K miles depending on the kind of use the bike has had during that time.

Sporty touring with other riders has the bike getting ridden pretty hard, so 3K on oil/filter. But if just putting round, then closer to 4K or even 5K. Full Syn high end oil does help extend useful life of the oil, IMO.
Cheers!

A 3k interval? That's just crazy. No need to change oil 3x more often than specified by Ducati.

Yup, Munroe. A buddy of mine owns a multi he bought from them and recommended them. I've gotten nothing but great service from them so I'm happy to give them business. I think they're service department is great. My buddies Multi spun a bearing and they covered the rebuild under warranty. I brought my bike in with the VERY specific complaint of "surging and stumbling around 80 - 90mph... sometimes) they spent the time to go over it and finally found that a wire to the O2 sensor had failed inside the sheath. No idea how long that took, all covered under warranty as well.

I wouldn't say I put around, most of my riding is spirited on the backroads, but I'm not launching from every light or bouncing off the rev limiter. I figured with the quality synthetic required by the motor pushing to 6k is probably reasonable, I suppose the only way to really know if to start doing used oil analysis, but that's not as appealing since my shop is the sidewalk :-)

This is "one of those debates", but with synthetics in a modern watercooled engine, 3K is overkill. The viscosity breakdown of synthetics is remarkably better than with traditional oil.

I think it's still important to change oil before long storage, but 5-9k shouldn't be a problem. I'm sure ducati is very conservative with their oil change recommendations.

I'd venture to say the opposite. They're increasing the intervals so their bikes have the appearance of lower maintenance costs.

I had an oil analysis done after 3k on amsoil full synthetic, and they told me I had roughly 2k miles left in the oil before they recommended I change it. So round it down to 4500 and do it between minor services. What's the cost in doing one more oil change in between the 9k services? $10 filter + $40 oil = peace of mind.

I change the oil when the sight glass view is dirty.

While oil does last a long time compared to the old days, but there is still combustion byproducts that are suspended in the oil. Fresh oil is clean oil. Clean oil is a good thing.
