The Ducati Monster 796 maintenance schedule and service intervals — sourced from the owner’s manual.

This is the maintenance schedule for all Ducati Monster 796 models made from 2011-2014, including those with ABS.

The core maintenance schedule for the the Monster 796 is very similar to that of the 696, as it’s the same engine but with a longer stroke. Thus, you’re looking at 12,000 km valve and belt inspection intervals, and are required to replace the belts every 24,000 km or two years (but people usually do this every five years).
