Locate the tensioner locknut on the right-hand cilinder (bottom): -keep the engine idling for about two or three minutes -loosen the locknut about two turnes while idling -the chain tensioner will slide into the proper position -tighten the locknut to secure the tensioner position and stop the engine -repeat every 3000km or 2000mls

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

Your bike has an automatic adjusting cam chain tensioner. No adjustment needed.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? < And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

if your chain is makeing nois it would be a good idear to replace the chain a manual cam chain tenshioner will take the slack up but what about the valve timeing a worn chain will throw it out due to the chain stretching plus the manual tenshioner will make the guides wear faster if ya auto matic tenshioner has reached its limit that means replace chain no ifs or buts
