I am confused by your instructions Amos and referring to the Monster. Looking at the photo, I tightened the bolt attached to #1 from the backside, but didn't consider the allen head #2. I'll give them a shot.

Update: I took an 8mm T wrench to the accessible one and it was solid, couldn't get access to the one behind the kickstand.

Yes, it's the two M10 bolts with allen heads marked #2 in the photo that tend to loosen and should be re-torqued occasionally.

It's Italian. If I can get it to start, it'll win.

I had the bolts work loose and destroy the threads in the lower bolt. I had them helicoiled bu they came loose again. A couple of weeks ago I took the whole thing apart and used Loctite 243 on re-assembly. 200 miles later still solid. I have to say I have never had this issue on other Ducatis I've owned with the same sort of side stand mounting.

You've been lucky. A hasty internet search for "Ducati loose sidestand" will give you enough results to take a full day to go through.

Torque wet with Locktite 262. The 243 will likely be fine, check it at every oil change.

Sorry this happened and glad you've fixed it before it got dropped or worse.

If you haven't already, cruise through the maintenance sections...lots of posts on this issue and others you might also read through about the SS.

I'm still confused about which bolts are coming loose. Is it the single one that mounts the stand to the plate or the ones mounting the plate to the engine.

All of the ones I've seen are the M10 Allen bolts. Labeled #2 in the attached diagram.

That's odd. Those bolts are 24nm. The fairing bracket feels like a vibration damper. Ok I'll check mine next time I'm in the garage. 24nm plus the fairing bracket. I can't remember if the plate mount is plastic or alloy but I remember it being very light.

#2 bolts are the M10x1.5, 42Nm with threadlock.

Not 24Nm, that's the M8 bolt #9 in the diagram.
