2011 Oil Spill

Time to shake off the cobwebs, plug in the battery chargers, and get ready for the riding season. And what better way to reacquaint yourself with your prize Ducati than to give it a thorough inspection with friends who think they know what they're talking about?

It's time again for DESMO's annual Oil Spill at the Ducati Ranch in picturesque Dutchess County. This year's Spill will be held on Sunday, May 1. This is your opportunity to perform all the basic maintenance you neglected or aren't sure how to do. There will be plenty of experts (real and imagined) to help. Change your oil (no spills, please), adjust your suspension, tighten your belts, lube your chain, bleed your brakes, chop your tail, install your bling, and do any other projects that time permits. Have a new bit and unsure how to get it on your bike? Over the years, we've installed frame sliders, chains, exhaust systems, wheels, tires, brakes, and so much more.
This is a do-it-yourself event. There will be plenty of guidance and ridicule in equal measures from the peanut gallery, but this is a do-it-yourself event.
If you are interested in attending, cost is $10 for breakfast (bagels, donuts, coffee) and lunch (pizza, soda, water) per person. You do not have to perform maintenance (nor own a Ducati) to participate, but space is limited, so priority will be given to those with Ducatis who need to perform maintenance. Since we're limited to a couple dozen people, this event sells out quickly.
This year, the Oil Spill will be featuring Mobil 1 Racing 20W-50 full synthetic oil along with K&N oil filters. You do not need to purchase oil from us to change your oil at this event. This is simply done as a convenience for those who may have trouble transporting a gallon of oil on a motorcycle. You may also purchase additional amounts of oil or filters, to bring (or ship) home for future use. We also have a limited supply of rear sprockets for sale. Please visit our shop for details and fitment availability.

Admission/Lunch: $10 per person
4 quarts of oil: $40
1 filter, 1 drain and 1 screen plug crush washers: $10

All oil purchases must be in multiples of 4 quarts.

Please let us know your bike's year and make (so we can order the right washers for your bike) and what maintenance you want to perform (so we can ensure the right tools are on hand).
