An intermediate service is typically carried out at increments of 10,000, 12,000 and 15,000 kilometres dependant upon the model and era of motorcycle. Despite being quite often overlooked, this service is critical for fine tuning your motorcycle and keeping it running well over its lifetime. Typically, these will take place halfway between your major services. Some Ducati models (from roughly 2014 onwards), do not suggest an intermediate service is necessary, and rather that a minor service halfway between the major services while suffice. Despite that, we have found that checking valve clearances halfway between majors has proven highly beneficial for particular models. Please contact us for further information to ensure your bike is getting the best care.
