Featured 1200 DVT Finally Cleaned My Multi.....

  1. After being guilted into it by @Lord Farquaad and his immaculate DVT, I removed the bellypan, and went to town on the engine with paraffin and a brush, then spent nearly the whole day cleaning the rest of the bike. Am pleasantly surprised at how well it's come up after 2 winters of salt and crap. New chain, two new tyres and it's now ready to go. :D (Note Ducati forum stickers on screen)

  11. I do like the arrow system @Carr01 , and will go down that path if I decide to keep it. I only put the tyres and chain on as a few of us off to Spain in April. If the multi stays on our return, then arrow it is :upyeah:
