A little chain HELP please

2008 MV 910R How do you adjust the chain??? Do I need a special tool to put on the eccentric??? They say the chain should have .350 slack. Is that measured up or down on the chain? Pushing up the chain moves about .600 if I pull down on the chain its moving about .300, which way do I move the chain? Tried buying a service manual, but MV does not want to help with that. 3 different part numbers were sent to MV from Pro Italia all got bounced as no good. What other tools am I going to need to keep this bike running? Thanks John

There's a tool in the tool kit looks like capt hooks hand but flat. You need to loosen the pinch bolts have the bike on the rear stand and then just use the tool to spin the hub. CAREFUL when you tighten the pinch bolts. They MUST be torked very lightly to spec.

Also there is a diagram on the lower chain guard(plastic shield mounted to bottom of swingarm). This has the Chain slack recommendation. You want the chain to sag below that as noted. Looser is better as too tight can damage the bearings.

+1 and some knowledge--You can seriously kill the bearings if you don't do this right.

Found the tool kit, but still a little fuzzy on the chain. I have a couple of torque wrenches, inch and foot lbs. Now to convert metric to standard. Thanks again for the help. Later John

Don't forget to slowly alternate each bolt, upping the torque back and forth, not all one then the other.

Metric to standard ? More like metric to imperial, come on, get with the progress already.

Your talking to a old machinist, who came up using thousandths of an inch. Having Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki all three have manuals made for the US. No conversion needed. When I can't buy a manual, that's a problem. My bike is used 11000 miles the clutch sounds like a dry clutch, I want to see what's going on. Told from PI it will take 4 weeks to get clutch cover gasget, that's a BIGGER problem. After reading horror stories about bearing failure due over tightening of chain or bolts. Just want to make sure things are handled correctly. I bought the bike to ride, not sit in my garage waiting on parts. And I thought Ducati was a F'ed up company. Disappointed after month already.
