1199 base fork replacement

Hi all.

Anyone was replacing fork legs on 1199? I have checked the Ducati workshop manual and based on that seems that is impossible to replace legs in garage conditions???

It requires 0.1 mm accuracy (see attached pic). So, I don't know which tools I should use to get same accuracy...

Who can advise or share own experience?

No problem replacing them yourself. Sliping forks up or down in the triple clamp is even considered a normal adjustment on race biked

your bike's weight is supported by the springs inside the forks, consider it having an additional 0.1mm of preload. not to worry.

You can get a lot of accuracy by measuring how far the top cap is above the top triple clamp. If you are within a mm, you will be fine. Sounds scary, but really isn't. Just follow factory torque settings.

I have one bit of advice to add: throw your axle in place and make sure it spins freely. That's as aligned as it needs to be.

One more question.

In the pic you can see that I should use Grease B. Is it necessary? Can I use Loctite Lock or must use Grease based on molybdenum?

If you use some kind of glue instead of grease, Бугимен is coming to you. At night. During winter. In the rain.
