List of tools required for self service

I am trying to compile a list of all the tools (allen key, screw driver, special tools etc) that's required to service the bike, kindly chip in and make this thread beneficial to all members new and old.

Starting by:
  • Torx 60 - Swing arm lug nut
  • 12 point 55 mm socket for rear wheel removal

Thanks!

I think someone already has a post on that. I do remember something regarding basic tools, but i might be wrong.

above plus:
1. Hook wrench to adjust the chain (unless you want to jam a screwdriver, not).
2. Front axle nut.
3. A real big ass ratchet for the rear wheel nut.
4. Single sided rear shop stand.

common:
5. Regular tool box, hand tools, sockets, wrenches, various allen keys and allen key drivers, torx and torx drivers.

Here is a couple of links to some basics I have. Good quality and work well for me. You should also get a large 17mm hex key to remove/clean metal mesh filter when doing oil changes.

Any views on which 55mm socket is preferred? The “standard” chrome-vanadium like this: https://www.xlmoto.dk/bosning-til-hj...g-jmp-55-mm#?p
Or the short ones which provide the inside fit in the nut?

- Several torque wrenches, spanning 3-230 Nm
- Oil filter tool (doesn’t have to be the Ducati specific one but it helps)
- 14 and 17 mm Allen key to empty oil and remove mesh filter (mentioning this because those are unusually large sizes)

Bonus: TIG-welder to remove those poor quality Ducati bolts which will inevitably seize in hard to reach spots.

I would absolutely recommend the special 55 socket with inside support. I haven’t tried a regular socket myself but considering the force needed on the rear wheel (230 Nm), it’ll be tricky to keep the socket on properly without it sliding off or coming out of alignment and risk ruining the nut. The special socket just fits snug and stays on. Also keeps the point of leverage closer to the nut.

I bought a CV 55mm and had the sockets original chamfer milled off so it has a straight edge to prevent damaging the rear nuts.
