I have the 748s and a friend of mine had one of the 998 -s . I also have video on how to adjust the valves that shows how to take all the stuff off of the bike to get down to adjusting the valves. If that helps..

Actually, my question has to do with an oil run-off I experienced recently from the hose that connects to the front of the airbox. Does your model also have this same hose setup?

Yes I know it well, it happened to my 998 twice.
A couple of questions:
1. when did it happen.
2. what was the mileage on the bike?
3. who did you buy the bike from?
4. where you hurt?

Red, fortunately I was riding lead in the group and the riders behind me alerted me to the problem before it got worse. I've since discovered the "real problem" from many other testastretta duc owners on ducati.ms.

Good news is that I spoke to ducati-richmond and they contacted DNA. To my surprise, DNA will pay for the repairs. Hopefully this will cure the problem permanently.

Ducati of Richmond are the best in the area. Good luck!
I woul also recomend attaching a catch container to the airbox drain tube to retain enything that might come out in the future.
