Anyone who has done their own desmo service

Assuming there are any of you out there, how did you get your intake closing shims off? Ducati sells a special tool for over $500 to get them off, unless you take the heads off. I don't really want to split the bike in half to take the heads off, and I also don't want to spend $500 on a tool that I will use once..

I've searched online everywhere, and the tool is basically non-existent for renting/purchasing outside of ordering directly from dealership. The part # is 887133924

Any experience and/or advice is appreciated!

You can buy it, then sell it after you use it.

That may be the only option. Was hoping someone would have some first hand experience. Also not looking like there's a big market for it when I try to sell.

You’ve got a high end bike that will need its valves looked at more than once - the $500 you spend for the tool will pay for itself easily (assuming you are even able to buy it) or....make a friend at your dealership and borrow it

Yep, just a phone call or online order away.

Last year I performed a clearance check and all the valves were within tolerance. The values that I recorded suggested that some adjustments would likely be in order the next time around (mid 2019). I flipped through the shop manual at the time to get an idea of what special tools would be required. I came up with 887133468 (tool to remove half-cones/split rings… $113.00) and 887133467 (tool to fit valve collets… $200.00). When I saw your post today I took a second look at the shop manual because I couldn’t remember a $500.00 dollar tool being required to perform the job. I still can’t find tool 887133924 shown in the shop manual procedure. Did I miss it? You’re correct, the tool does exist and it’s listed in the parts catalogue as a tool to remove the half-cones, and it does sell for well over $500.00, but do you recall where in the manual the tool is shown to be an item required to perform the service? Do we have to spend $300.00+ or $800.00 for tools required to perform this service.

It is on page 150 of my pdf format service manual. Ill try to take a screenshot. Not sure if the 1199 service manual is any different either. The tools you are talking about I believe are used if you take the heads off the bike. I've noticed the service manual for these bikes is very vague, and also a lot of errors. Can make it difficult to follow.

Thanks. I don’t recall seeing a shot like that in the 1199 manual, but the tool is listed in the 1199 parts catalogue. That's what prompted the question. I’ll have to do some more research before handing over the bucks to Ducati.
