Great! I've poked around a few places and have seen one or two people talk about not dropping the motor but a lot more people removing it so I wasn't quite sure. Good deal!

Hi

I'm in the middle of doing a belt change on my 1D. As I go along I " think " you can do it without taking the engine out. Having striped some of it I believe if you take the front wheel and front swing arm off the plate should - hopefully come off and the engine won't fall out as long as it is supported. I have taken photos from the start and have 42 so far. I am replacing the coolant lines and fuel lines with silicone ones as well. If you want a copy of the pictures thus far let me know and I'll see what I can do.

I'd imagine its a little more difficult on a Tesi 1D....twin cams on each cylinder...bigger belt....either an 851 or 888 motor with 4 valves per head...

well I managed to do it this afternoon. You can take the right hand side plate off with the engine still in place. probably took more off than I needed to but it's all a learning curve and I'll know for next time. You do need to take the front end off which was a bit of a pain but finally managed. I'm pretty sure taking the thing apart is a lot easier than putting it back together

Ok managed to get the RH frame plate off but found that the top trellis frame bit needs to be unbolted and will move enough out of the way to get the plates off. Finally

Hi

Cam belt change is the main thing that scares me about a Tesi, so this is good to hear.

All the best

Well I finally got all the bits off I need. I have never worked on a Duke before so I'm not sure what tools I need. I have a Ducati workshop manual for the enginey stuff and have started collecting the tools I think I will need.

I will be replacing the coolant and fuel hoses with silicone, already have braided steel goodridge oil hoses fitted and will eventually replace the brake lines which are braided steel.

I have a ton of photos if anyone wants a copy

Hopefully get her done for the summer cant wait to get out on her again
