Tools you may need to maintain your motorcycle

To maintain your motorcycle you need to make sure you have the best oil and other consumables, motorcycle-specific tools, and other tools for your workshop.

Below we’ve listed:

What you need to maintain the Ducati Hyperstrada 821

The following is a list of consumables (things like oil, spark plugs etc.) you need to maintain the Ducati Hyperstrada 821.

OilDucati recommends Shell Advance Ultra motorcycle oil. You need 3.7L for a complete oil change. It’s hard to find and expensive so people suggest Mobil 1 Synthetic. A lot of Ducati owners use Shell Rotella T4 for everything from street use to racing.
Oil filterGenuine Ducati part is 44440037A. I’d suggest removing that and using a K&N KN-153 oil filter which can be changed with a normal wrench.
Brake fluid, Clutch fluidDucati recommends Shell Advance DOT 4, but that’s quite hard to find, so Castrol DOT 4 Synthetic is a good and very high-quality alternative.
CoolantDucati recommends Shell Advance Coolant or a 35-40% mix of Glycoshell, a Nitrite, Amine, and Phosphate-free coolant. This is quite hard to find. But any ethylene glycol-based coolant will do the job.
Timing beltIs it time to change the timing belt? Don’t put it off… a broken timing belt will cost you a lot! You need part number 73740252A (and you need two).
Front brake padsStandard brake pads code is 61341021A. You can also use EBC FA630HH for more bite/feel.
Rear brake padsUse original part number 61340951A, EBC part number FA266HH for more bite/feel (and availability online)
Spark plugsNGK code MAR9A-J. Note they’re sold individually (and you have two cylinders).
Air filterThe part number for the air filter is 42610191A. You can also use K&N DU-1006.
Consumables for Ducati 821 series engines (Monster, Hyper)

You may also need the following general consumables to maintain your Monster 821.

ProductThumbnailDescription
Chain lubricantmotorcycle maintenance tools - motul chain pasteThe chain needs to be lubricated every 800 km/500 miles (or more, if it gets wet/dirty), with variations recommended between manufacturers. Motul chain paste is cheap and well-loved.
Chain cleaner brushmotorcycle maintenance - chain cleanerA chain cleaner brush makes cleaning off grime and then distributing new lubricant much more easy.
Paddock standmotorcycle maintenance tools - paddock standLubricating the chain and changing the oil both become a lot easier once you use an affordable paddock stand (not necessary if you have a center stand).
Cable lubricantmotorcycle maintenance - cable lubricantRemember to lubricate your clutch cable (and brake cables if you have them) with a cable lubricant. Protect All Cable Life is a good general-purpose lubricant.
GreaseGet a good lithium soap based grease for lubricating major components like your side stand, centre stand, and bearings.
General motorcycle consumables — Brake fluid, chain lube, clutch lube, and grease

General Information on the Ducati Hyperstrada 821

The Ducati Hypersrada is one of the Ducati’s Hypermotard family, although it’s a blend of the Hypermotard and Hyperstrada.

It’s essentially a Hypermotard that’s more comfortably set up for touring, with a better seat, luggage, and a slightly more comfortable position.

But the engine and the electronics are exactly the same. It has an 821cc 11-degree Testrastretta (“narrow head”) L-twin pushing out over 110 hp.

The specific characteristics of the Ducati Hyperstrada 821 that distinguish it from other Hypermotards are the:

  • Luggage on both sides
  • Touring screen
  • More comfortable seat
