Thumbs up What did you do to your Ducati Multistrada 950 today?

Share what you did today with the Ducati Multistrada 950 community!


Example: Took delivery at the dealership today, rode her home and gave it a nice wash!

Example: It rained on the ride home, when I got home I cleaned up the chain and lubed it.


Example: Went out for a impromtu ride and ended up all the way across town. It was a nice ride!


Anything goes!

Spent three hours at the DMV to transfer my license plate and get it registered in my state. Can't wait to get the 600-miles service done and over with, so I'm finally free of administrative chores!

On the bright side, you'll have thoroughly broken in the 950 by the time you service it, then it's open throttle and no more admin chores!

Hooked up my old Garmin zumo mount to the handle bar and attached the battery harness. It's not pristine because I was unable to run the cable along the existing cable tree (so it runs along the side of the tank under the seat to the battery), but it does not interfere with my legs, does not appear to get caught on anything, and it does not impair handlebar movement. Made an appointment for 600 mile maintenance for next Saturday maybe they'll show me how it's done properly...

Zeroth service completed, top case installed! Still happy with the bike (closing in on 1,000 miles even though it's not a commuter). I'm getting a bit more confident on dirt roads - balancing that bike in a slide still seems like a scary proposition to me. It's awesome on the road. The smaller, crappier, and bumpier the road, the happier I am I have this bike. So now that I definitely have the style of bike I need for my riding, we'll see if it can keep me happy, too. That mostly means: if I do my part with maintenance, you don't break **** that's not wear-and-tear.

Glad to hear you're loving it so far and the slide balancing you should be able to get much more comfortable and confident with practice. Albeit, if you don't go on dirt roads often, you'll be alright, but it's a nice skill to possess.

The more skill, the better. The best mod to get done is the rider mod.

Swapped Foot Peg Inserts

I swapped the rubber footpeg inserts with the narrower ones on the passenger footpegs. Makes the brake pedal and shifter in a better position and gives you another half inch or so of legroom. Easy fix.

I picked up a Denali Soundbomb Mini horn from Revzilla and replaced the OEM one. Fits in the same space and plugs right in. Definitely has a bit more authority.

Had my 1000km service today. Costs were about 180. Also had the side paniers, center stand and the high navigator mount set (including a tomtom) installed. They had to adjust the mount set because the tomtom did not fit lol. Love the placement of the navigation. The paniers were a pain to get off the bike and have a small torn in one of the hanging parts already.

Finally I can explore the higher rpms. And am ready for long distance trips now.
