Ducati DS1000 Supplemental Tutorial

There's been a lot of people asking around about the valve adjustments on a DS1000, and how it is different from a regular 2v Ducati. So here are some notes to help supplement the valve adjustment information out there.

This is not a full tutorial, you can find tutorials on how to adjust your valves all across the internet.

Firstly the location of the timing marks are not the same, however the idea remains. When all the tick marks on the belt side line up and the tick mark on the flywheel lines up, the forward cylinder is at top dead center (TDC).

Excuse the blurry picture, but the vertical cylinder's mark is at the 12 o'clock position.
