If its been awhile since the brakes were bleed, I would give that a shot too.
did mine when they felt soft. It firmed them up a bit

Now you guys see why I'm so nervous having these clowns rebuilding the Engine on my Blown Hyper. Their story is an apprentice ruined the brake deal, but the
certified Ducati "Master" will be doing my engine. (they claim the guy is one of just a few actual Ducati Masters in the Bay Area. (I have no idea the veracity of that claim)

Wish me luck ... or PLEASE ... offer any suggestions I can forward to the mech before they dig in. (still awaiting parts ... )
Which shop has your bike? A friends multistrada had to be rebuilt after it spun a camshaft bearing. The work was done at Munroe and while it wasn't a quick job, they did a good job, and all under warranty at that.

Hi Nathan. I've been waiting to post results about my bike until more has been accomplished.

Brief history:
Bike was brought into Marin Speed shop around June 28th. RPM Extended Service company balked on paying the $6000 repair tab. Took 1.5 months until they finally approved the claim. Total BS deal.

So now parts have been ordered, just waiting for all to arrive ... from Italy! In August! ... when the whole country is on vacation!
Now parts are trickling in and reassembly will begin soon.

Interesting your buddies camshaft bearing spun ... that is EXACTLY what happened to my bike. So entire front cylinder, head, Piston ... the works ... are being replaced. I was hoping they would do the rear cylinder too but they said NO DAMAGE there.

My question ... to everyone here ... is why would the cam bearing spin?
It was HOT but I was not riding hard at all when engine failed. Any insight?

Anyway, will write a proper detailed update when more info is available.

Thanks for chiming in, good news about Munroe's. I know Nick and Matt for over 20 years. RPM warranty company insisted I go to dealer where I bought
the service contract.(Marin Speed Shop, AKA Hattar's)

Hope that was not a mistake. Approaching 3 months without this bike now. Updates to follow ... fingers crossed!

What grounds did RPM try and deny the claim on?
