  1. Spongy Brakes

    Scrambler Talk
    Hi, 2018 model sled but in commision only 9 months and 4000 km. Rear brake fluid changed twice and bled three times. Front brake fluid changed once and bled twice. Just today managed to talk with my local (non Ducati) tech who said 'Air keeps getting in brakes, must be ABS fault'. Nobody else...
  2. Replacing OEM Turn Signals with Shin-Yo LED Signals Off of Amazon

    Scrambler How-To's and Guides
    I recently installed some new turn signals - I've been meaning to replace the stock ones for a while now but never found the time.

  3. Desert Sled + Drone Active Track Footage

    Scrambler Pictures/Videos
    So I recently purchased DJI's Mavic Air 2 to up my game with motorcycle footage. Naturally the first thing I had to do was test and see how well this thing could keep up with me on the road.. Overall I'm super impressed, although I've already managed to crash it a handful of times, the drone...

    Hi guys I just purchased a Scrambler Desert Sled and I am in love with it! Theres just one thing bugging me out, and thats the cheap old-fashioned headlamp.

    Scrambler Gear & Accessories
    I recently got a 2018 Desert Sled as my first bike about a month ago and have been looking at some luggage options.

    Hello all, I have a 2018 desert Sled with a Leo Vince catless exhaust and high flow air filter installed.

    First post after lurking for a few odd months. Bought a 2017 Desert Sled pretty much 100% stock back in October, 2019 and have been really itching to get a fender eliminator on it for awhile.

    Scrambler Pictures/Videos
    Hello everyone! . Several years have passed since I've moved back to Toronto from Victoria, BC where I rode through the glorious Canadian Rockies and winding coastal highways on my beloved 1982 Honda CB750. Unfortunately it didn't make economical sense to drag the bike nearly 5000KM back to...

    Ducati Scrambler: Desert Sled
    I am about to take delivery of a new but last year's model Desert Sled. I pick it up in Madrid which is not ideal! To try and get ready I downloaded the pdf from this site and once I waded through the maze of warning notices and all the thousands of ways that you can be denied warranty cover I...
  19. *SOLD* Ducati Desert Sled - Mustang Seat

    Scrambler Parts for Sale / Wanted
    Excellent condition. Reason for selling: The stock seat killed me on rides more than 20 minutes. This seat made a world of difference, but it lowers the stock seat height about 3/4 of an inch. I’m fairly tall (6’1) and want the height back as I picked up an additional bike that’s better suited...
