Gear change lever adjustment ?

Anyone able to adjust the gear change leaver ? I have tried but it's solid and won't turn, loosened off both lock nuts, small one and big one, one has a left hand thread, yes I know all that, but the rod will not turn. Do not wan to put to much force on it just in case I shear the cap head bolts that hold it on to the swivel joints. First service booked for tomorrow, my dealer can have a look. Just thought I'd ask if any one else had this trouble ?

Back from my 600 mile service. Dealer had to remove the footrest hanger and remove the shift rod to free up the swivel joint from the rod, as even though it has a locking nut Ducati locktite the thread into the rod, that's what my problem was. Sorted now.

Yes Woods mate, they've been great right through the purchase of my first Ducati. Can not fault them.

That's reassuring - I am getting mine from there too. What model did you get ?

Base + ABS what an awesome machine. Picked it up on Monday afternoon, first service Friday afternoon then riding her down to Portsmouth and on the ferry to Santander for ten day riding holiday in Spain next Tuesday. Wicked, cannot wait.
