Yeah he's a good guy...he reset my service light for free just cause he remembered that my bike was service there by the previous owner. No questions asked, he even spent sometime talking and giving me some advice. Good guy!

Imperial charges $96 an hour and has a good mech like mentioned above.

Ducati-BMW dealership charges $106 or $116 an hour.

Mspeed just had one of their mechs go through Ducati mech training at the Ducati Canada headquarters (I think on the east coast some where) and charges $85 an hour.

I've taken my business to Mspeed for most oil changes, although they can be done on ducs by anyone as it's a pretty general task, which you can get done at pretty much any shop.

Things like valve checks, I would only hand it off to certified/experienced Ducati mechs though.
