Also, if you leave the build up of grime on the 2 bolts you can use it as a rough guide when tightening up again. Assuming they were torqued correctly in the first place!
This tool is awesome! Guys at bellissimoto recommended it and it worked like a charm!

With the rear wheel suspended the measurement will be different.


Yes ... Set vehicle on side stand is the correct way

unlike every other Ducati I've worked on, the Panigale's eccentric hub is a pain in the ass to rotate - it's very, very stiff. I have the correct tool to turn it, but have more than once resorted to flathead screwdriver and mallet.....

Never happened to me, maybe you should disasemble the hub array and lubricate it.

the techs at my dealer also said that the Panigales had stiff hubs, although they're not permitted to hammer away....

I checked both side stand and rear paddock stand, didn't make a difference.

standard spring/P setting

Slackness is checked with one finger pulling the chain down (as per manual), my eccentric hub was also stiff but I wouldn't use a screwdriver and mallet.

Mine’s as stiff as hell. My 848 was never this stiff. Supposed to be checked on the side stand at the tightest point.
