Thank you so much to the OP. I just performed my first service at 705 miles. You were spot on with all of your comments. Ducati must employ a gorilla to tighten that mesh screen. I tightened the oil filter, drank a beer, and cranked on it again. Here's hoping for no leaks. Surprised at how heavy the stock exhaust is on the desert sled. Also wondering why they used red thread lock on one of the exhaust hanger studs. ( exhaust exit side ) I put everything back with blue thread lock for good measure. Time for another brew and out to start her up and make sure all is well.

Used a Ducati OEM filter and had no leaks. It only took three quarts to refill. I think the 3.7 spec may be a for a dry engine. The magnetic plug had a fine coating of particles but the mesh screen was perfectly clean. I'm headed to the dealer for a brake hose recall later this week and I'll find out how much they want to reset the service indicator on the dash. Thanks again to all forum readers who gave input on this topic. The task went smoothly and I knew just what to expect.
