Dead Horse Oil Light Maintenance Reset

Flog me now for beating a dead horse here...but after reading every thread on every site I could find...

Does anyone have a workaround for the V4 service lights? My 600 mile light finally illuminated. I'm doing the work myself, I have lifts, tools, and rarely take any of our vehicles (2 or 4 wheels) to the dealerships.

Heck, my wife yells at me for fixing items under warranty rather than going to the dealer. Unless it's a costly or highly complex issue, I'd rather spend a few dollars and not deal with the dealer, loaner vehicles, appointments, and of course picking up my vehicle in potentially worse condition than it arrived in.

Anyway, just curious if there's a way to owner-reset yet...or ever. It's really my only complaint in the first 600 miles.

By the way, if anyone knows of a good source for the filters, I'd be interested in knowing options as well.

I use Motul for all of my vehicles these days, and 300V 4T 15W50 for the V4's oil.

The Texa diagnostic tool is used as OEM service by many auto manufacturers including Ducati.
They're licensed with all manufactures for Diag.

Well call me cheap! I'd rather drive with the light on than spend over $1K...looks like Texa is around $7K from what I see online, and $4K for SnapOn...think I'd be better served to try to pay the dealer to do my light resets! Now, will they? That's the question, I'll have to ask. Looks like some dealerships will, some won't. And we only have one dealer here.

I need to take it into their shop anyway. Noticed an oil leak while doing the oil change, chain clean/lube/tighten, front sprocket changed down by a tooth, and canister delete. Last time I was in there they said service was 1-2 months out for scheduling...sounds like fun.

Looks like the oil is coming from left side front corner of the oil pan bolts. I didn't see it any higher than that spot, but it was a decent amount of wet oil, road grime stuck to oil mist, and what not. Took me a while to clean it all up, inside the fairing, under the fairings, at the bottom, even my kickstand was covered in soot.

I might put some miles on her (while carefully watching the oil and leakage) so as not to waste my new filter and fresh oil! Get a bigger bang for my buck on the warranty work.

Don't know if MelcoDiag works with the V4 yet but worth keeping an eye on.

Diagnostic software

I have a vague recollection that healtech who do the exhaust servo eliminators have a cheap unit that can read and delete codes so maybe try them. I think it was around $300?
