Have chain tension adjusted by a ducati dealer or authorised service centre.

Make the rear wheel turn until you find the position where chain is tightest.

Set the vehicle on the side stand. Push down the chain at the point of measurement and release.

Measure the distance between the "aperture" upper profile and pin centre.

The read distance must be: 9 ÷ 11 mm.
