Quicker and cheaper changes. For example has someone found the equivalent Mobil 1 filter size for the HM?I know Cycle Gear carries the K&N #153 filter for the Hyper and you can get a filter from Amsoil but I don't think the main stream parts stores carry a filter that would fit a Ducati.,,

Just got a SMR 510, 2010 model year, first dirt bike I've owned, all previous bikes have been sport bikes...I'm looking for something that looks like a maintenance schedule in the owners manual but I don't...


I had an 07 SMR 510. Loved that bike and I miss it all the time. I now own a Ducati 848 SF and still miss mah husky.
- I would change my oil and filter every 600-700 miles. It only holds a liter so it's gonna go dark faster.
- The air filter should be removed periodically (400miles or less) and cleaned in gasoline. It's a good idea to use filter oil on it (K&N filter oil works best)
-You'll want to call on these guys to order a valve shim kit http://www.halls-cycles.com/. They're husky experts and can answer a myriad of maintenance questions.
- The valves probably need to be checked every 2000 miles or so to keep it running at peak. Single cylinder thumpers are valve maintenance intensive but checking and setting is pretty simple once you are used to doing it.
- Youtube is a good source for that stuff.
- Use chain lube after every 300 miles.
- Beyond that just keep it clean.
- Pop wheelies and live like a hooligan!!!

Oil types usage


There have got to be as many opinions on oil choice as there are motorcyclists. The Owners Manual says to use SHELL Advance Ultra 4, SAE 20w-50, but it also says "Engine oil and oil filters must be changed by a Ducati dealer or authorized workshop at regular intervals,as specified in the routine maintenance schedule" so take that for what you will. Some will swear on Uncle Zeke's grave that $11/qt Agip synthetic is the only thing that should go in your fine Italian machine and others will berate you as a fool for using anything more pricey than .89 cent/qt Valvoline dino oil from AutoZone. I've seen claims that "Most motorcycle oils are SG/SH and JASO MA rated where most auto oils are now SJ/SH rated and not JASO rated at all" implying that newer Automotive oils are not designed with motorcycles at all. The truth is that most of what I've read (like the MCN article link below) on the subject says that under most conditions and by most criteria, there's not a lot of difference between quality automotive oils and motorcycle specific oils. I personally think that changing your oil regularly is more important than what oil you use. One thing that seems to be in almost universal agreement is that for the first 600 mile break-in period a non-synthetic oil should be used to help "hone-in" the cylinder walls. Since your new Ducati should have come from the dealership with oil in it, this shouldn't be a big worry for most. That said, I personally choose to use Redline Performance SAE 10w-40 full synthetic in all of my motorcycles and my Jeep. I've been running it in my Monster 750 since 600 miles and I haven't had any mechanical issues with the bike. Some people have claimed to have had problems with using full synthetic oils in wet clutch bikes, but Redline is specifically formulated with an additive for wet clutch motorcycles. My personal Ducati Guru, Mike Lancaster at Ducs-R-Us, once told me that he uses Agip in all of his bikes (Hey... He's the one that started me on Redline!) but that it was more because he got it at cost than because he thought it was significantly better. He said that if he didn't get performance motorcycle oils at cost, he'd have no problem just filling them up with Mobile-1. Bottom line: Ask around, do your own research, and then you can join the oil crusades yourself.

6000 mile service DIY


Take a look at your owners manual - it should say what is required for your service interval. From that you can judge and see if you really can do everything yourself. Simple things you can do your self are changing the oil/oil filter, general lubing, checking loose nuts and bolts, etc. Then you have the valves...which is a black box for me...and something I don't want to dive into.
