Most any motorcycle comes with an adjustable chain device on the rear swing arm. as you adjust the small nut inwards towards the front of the bike, it tightens the chain. Likewise for loosening. the adjuster should have increment markings on both sides of the swingarm to even the wheel out. Now I can't say for sure that this is the case with your bike, so I just joined a website that has a forum on these bikes. If you'd like to join as well here is the address http://www.ducati.ms/ I'll get the info from them and relay it back to you. Hope this helps

HI, you will need a C spanner, behind the rear sprocket is the adjuster,it is the ring with the cutouts in it, first loosen the two bolts on the end of the swinging arm then move the ring in a clockwise direction to tension the chain, if you are very carefull you can do this with a punch and hammer but be carefull, have fun

How do I adjust final drive chain


hi place machine on the centre stand, on the chain side of the bike you will see 2 x17mm bolts first undo these, secondly using the special c spanner from the tool kit locate the ecentric splined nut rite behind the sprocket turning this nut clockwise will loosen the chain, anticlockwise will tighten the chain, before adjustment always check the chain condition rotating the whee looking for extreme tightspots the chain should be considered as failed and replaced with a new 1, after tigtening chain re check for tension rotating the wheel and checking tightness all around, when happy retighten the 2 x 17mm nuts, do not overtighten these nuts, good luck easy job

How do i adjust the chain on a ducati multistrada 1000ds thanks


You pull it of course. Nach... first put the bike on its centre stand then look at the end of your swing arms (both) there should be an adjuster where you loosen the bolt/nut and slide it back toward you by wheel axle. It normally tells you if you are in the same distance for both side. Tighten the bolt/nut and off you go.

Howzit everyone. I have a "small" issue with my FZR 400R Deltabox Exup. So it doesn't want to idle properly(the moment I reduce the idle speed to any point below 3000rpm it continues to drop and dies) and also revving the bike it bogs around 6000rpm doesn't go any higher. When restricting the airflow through the airbox it revs better(all the way to 14k rpm) but still doesn't want to idle as the revs then hang on it's way down. I suspected this was all caused by an air leak somewhere, sprayed some quick start on the boots between the carbs and the intake as well as between the airbox and the carbs with no jump in the revs. Nevertheless I sealed the boots just to make sure they aren't the problem. I then stripped the carb and cleaned it properly, put everything back together, sorted out their syncing and reset the mixture screws to 3.5 turns out(which sounds a bit far out, but thats what the manual said-since then I've tried everything from 0.5 to 4 turns out with no significant effect). Then the cylinder started acting up(not firings- a different cylinder about every third time the bike was started) I then replaced the spark plugs with new ones(NGK cr9ek as per the manual) after that cylinder 1,2 and 3 was firing, but 4 was still dead. I Replaced the coil, leads and caps, still not firing. I checked the compression, which was fine, I checked the valve clearance (cylinder 4 the one intake valve was way out of spec, so i replaced the shim), still not firing. I've got no idea what else could be the problem or what to check next. PS. When i pulled the spark plugs(both new and old) they where burnt black so I'm not sure if my jetting could be out of spec perhaps?
