    I got my bike back from its 24,000 km Desmo service. It took a ridiculous five days but I'm happy with the result. They changed oil, oil filter, air filter, brake pads, spark plugs, sprocket retainer shim, the chain, timing belts and did a valve clearance adjustment. I also had the Multistrada foot pegs fitted on recommendation of this forum. They're a little bigger and have rubber insets with more grip than the standard foot pegs - good mod, thanks. I think I may also have an updated map as the bike feels smoother at low revs. Price? It only cost me about 90 US$ (70 Pound) for the pegs and labor to have them fitted. I was lucky enough to get the Ducati Worry Free programme for 4 years or 30,000 km when I bought my bike so the service and parts were all done for freeee!

    The spark plugs and belts still looks good for 24,000 km use. What are the little metal half rounds? Are they from the valve shims?

    Having my 12,000 km Desmo service in a couple of days. I believe the cost will be in the ballpark of AU$700+.

    Yes. They are the half-rings that locate the closer shims to the valve stems. It is good practice to replace them at each Desmo service. They wear slightly and often simply replacing them brings the closing clearance back within spec. iI the closing clearances are left to get too large the resultant hammering can cause the half-rings to fracture and sometimes come out in 2 or more pieces.

    The 12,000 km Desmo service includes;
    Change engine and oil filter
    Check and/or adjust valve clearance
    Clean air filter
    and a load of checks

    I'd expect it to be a bit more than $270AUS.
