Nothing special to say here, except that I had my bike serviced Monday at Zagame (never been there before, but I am impressed by the service so far! .... and for all the other Melbourne Ducati riders, they have a 15% off special on services until the end of August ). When I picked it up yesterday, the service manager handed me two little bags "for my interest". One bag had all my brake pads. Looking at a couple of them, its no wonder my front brakes were grabbing a little...pads tend to take a bit of that problem away :roll: The other bag had all my valve shim half rings....every single one was broken and a couple of bits were found on my sump plug magnet Its hard when cash is tight and you need to service your bike, but make sure you have all the basic stuff done at least.
