A 2007 DB6 Delirio is finally in my garage.
The bike has 25.000 km and some minor works to do.
Rear fairing
Transmision kit.
Fluid and oil change.
Belts

I rode it last Saturday to test, and my smile still continues. What a great bike!! Light, great on the brakes and very stable.
Good advice will be appreciated!

P.D. Do you now some way to make the clutch softer?

Welcome to the club and congratulations......the DB6 is a lovely bike to ride.....

What do you mean "making the clutch softer" Do you mean easier to pull the lever? If so....then firstly change the clutch fluid for new.....then...if necessary.....change the clutch slave for a maintenance free, guaranteed for life Oberon Clutch slave unit...or.....change the clutch handlebar mounted master for a Brembo radial unit or Accossatto unit......and get a matching one for the front brakes at the same time...……

What rear fairing does it need?

Sorry for my bad english!! Embarassed

Yes, I mean easier to pull the lever!
I will change the fluid, and see.
I didn't know the Oberon Clutch, maybe is because I was younger with my previous Ducati's, hahahaha
Thanks for the advice, It's very interesting.

As you can see the rear light is damaged, and I want to replace it.


I have heard about Benelli Tornado Tre light, and I have bought one. But It didn't arrive yet.

Thanks for your help!! Very Happy

Did you buy a Benelli standard light or the LED version ??

If the LED, they are similar but mount slightly different so you need to do a little work to attach.

I bought the standard one. I prefer to keep the bike "original".
Will be easier to fit?

Thanks for your welcome and help Very Happy

Bom día!

Nice to know about you!
Same year as my bike. I'm interested in the fairing light pictures!
Any info about the bike will be appreciated.
I will be very glad to meet you, I visited Porto with my KTM 1290 two years ago.

Sure, but be careful with your feet starting the engine!

Welcome to the club. I too have a DB6...but am a bit far away to meet as I am in the states.

Re: the clutch, Ducati has used 22mm-25mm since 2001 or so. A larger slave cylinder piston helps the reduce the lever effort (insert bad jokes here...).

I have heard that 29mm works best but it depends on the brand...and there are several. Can't go wrong with the following:

- Oberon 29mm
- EVR 28.5mm
- STM 28mm

I second 2bims' suggestion re: replacing the master cylinders with Accossato parts. Pure moto-jewelry.

Yum yum!

Why not a PR19 from Brembo ?
