Showing my ignorance of all things technical as I have no idea what this is :rolleyes: , when I was cleaning my bike the other day I noticed it. There is an open hole here which is threaded, should it have something in it? (The drip is from ACF-50 not an oil leak!)

My first instinct was a port for a redundant coolant or oil line. That or for a hydraulic clutch line. The slave cylinder usually goes on the left side of the engine but could be where it goes into the gearbox.

Looking at Google though, the 821 and 1200 motors both have the same thing. Some kind of breather maybe?

Does yours have it and is it open?

Mine has a blanking plug fitted. I was told that the port was an oil pressure take off for earlier models.

Maybe the later models are blocked internally, or are not drilled ?

On some other Ducati, an oil pressure sensor is connected here.

Exactly!

That's where oil pressure sensor is placed in most models that share same engine base.
Even Sixty2 sensor is there.



However, in Scrambler 802cc for some reason Ducati decided to fit it on oil cooler lines.
