748s Rocker Arms

Has anyone had problems with the rocker arms of their bike.
If so is it due to not warming bike up and what is the average cost of each arm?

Any information would be appreciated.

oh dear oh dear oh dear ....

and welcome ......

rocker arms are a known issue on dukes but not as common on 748's to my knowledge .....

they cost approximately 85 to 95 each depending on whether they are closing or opening rockers plust the labour costs involved in taking the heads off to get them replaced ...

How many have you had go ?????

.... I'll have a choca-moccha-latte-lite-decaff while you are at the bar .....

how old is the bike as if it is only just out of warranty contact Andy Joyce at Ducati UK and he may agree to supply the parts free if its full main dealer maintained ......

Dibs, its more common on 748's than on other bikes, possibly becasue they rev harder. Heads don't need to come off to change them though.
