SOURCE: chain tension

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

SOURCE: chain tension

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

SOURCE: drive chain adjustment

To adjust the chain you need to make sure you make the adjustment with the swing arm parallel to the ground, (this is the tightest point in the arc of the swing arm moving rotation), at that point you want to be able to put two finger between the chain and the swing arm at the swing arm pivot bolt. This will insure proper adjustment every time. The best thing to do is have somebody sti on the bike off the stand to make sure the swing arm is at its MAXIMUM arc, otherwise you stand a significant chance of over tightening it and this can and WILL cause SERIOUS damage to your engine. You will rip the output shaft bearings out of the center cases.
You also want too make sure you have proper wheel alignment as well. There are marks on the rear of the swing arm for adjusting the chain, make sure you have the marks on the adjusters in the same location on BOTH sides of the swing arm.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Regards,
RSelvy

SOURCE: i would like to lower the seat height on my Ducati 996

You can wind down the arse end of the bike through the rear shocky of the bike.It has an adjustable spring for ride height and preload.Your toolkit would have come with a tool to do this and it is quiet easy to do.When you do this,it will affect the handling of the bike so be gentle in the adjustments and not do too much at one time.The bike has a really good balance for most riders straight out of the box,and being a sports bike,it can't be dropped to far.Hope this helps
