Service manual available online

This looks like a preliminary version (incomplete in a few places and maybe wrong in others.)

But it's definitely a Ducati Scrambler 800 factory service manual. I just paid the 8 bucks to get my hands on it and it has a lot of info I was curious about.

DKM Motorcycles Workshop & Manuals: 2015 DUCATI SCRAMBLER Workshop Manual

I have no idea who the seller is or if they're doing something illegal or not. It worked for me though and I have the .pdf file and it opens and has contents, etc...

Excellent! Well found.

I just downloaded it too. It may be a "draft" but it's very comprehensive.

If it's a draft version, do you get the updated version for free when it comes out?

Ha, I'm guessing that the provider will not have a free update. But this is worth it to give me something to read while waiting for my bike to show up.

Does it include things like how to remove complete exhaust and strip the bike down in terms of removing headlight, getting to air filter etc and torque values?

Yes. It shows how to do everything a dealership would need to know. Down to tearing the engine apart to single pieces. It even shows how to strip the covering pieces off of the mufflers to replace them.

It's 873 pages long with illustrations included. Everything from oil changes to timing belt changes to valve shimming is discussed. Anything you'd need to know at home.

Unfortunately it makes sure to remind you that you need an Authorized Ducati Service Centre to do any sort of service light resetting.

GREAT find, admins/mods should make this into a sticky since this already provides tremendous value to Scrambler owners.

I want to buy this so badly, but the site seems so sketchy... may just sit shaking with my cursor on the "Pay Now" button and my finger hovered over the mouse for a few hours...
