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...

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.

It is a great read and gives me confidence to try a few things myself even though I rarely do anything mechanical on bike :)

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...
Yeah, I have my doubts that they own distribution rights to the file, but it's a physical file, non password protected, and you have paypal between you and them. I didn't have any issues getting the downloaded file. I made sure to back it up and throw it in the cloud in a few places. I just don't want to get put in jail for sharing it publicly all over the place.

Exactly, I don't ever plan to remove the crankshaft from the engine, but at least I can read about how it's done. I am mechanically inclined enough that I want to change the timing belts myself and at least check valve clearances at home before going to the dealer for shims.

It's such a crappy thing that you can't reset the service lights and DTC information yourself, at home.

Does it happen to mention fitting of the bash/skid plate by chance? I picked mine up at the dealer, but of course it came with no instructions. I haven't even looked at the bike yet to see how it would mount (garage is a few miles from where I live), so I'm curious if there is any literature to make the process easier.

This manual is a real rip, how can they sell it? I'm very disappointed.

The Multistrada manual I've got from one UK guy is a real one, this is something like a interactive html manual ripped off a service CD.

Bah.

EGICAR - just in case you missed a previous post of mine you may want to do a search to find out about the "oil drain torque" mistake in this manual.
Hope it saves you a bad day.
