Bristol's independent Ducati service and maintenance specialists, providing affordable Ducati servicing to main dealer standards.

Reduce your Ducati maintenance and servicing costs without compromising on quality.

Workshop services covering the full Ducati model range: 1198/1098/848, 999/749 Superbikes, 1000SS Supersport, the 748 and 916 to 998 Superbikes, all models from the Sport Classic range, the ST3 and ST4 SportTouring, Multistrada, Hypermotard, and all Monster, from the original 900 through to the S2R and S4R Testastretta models.

An affordable, independent alternative
JHS is one of the few independent service workshops in Bristol and the south west that have the factory workshop manuals and specific tools and instruments for setting-up Ducati superbikes and other models including the latest Multistrada, whilst also providing servicing for Ducati models using the air-cooled v-twin motor. Our equipment includes the essential Mathesis tester, an electronic diagnostic device that enables us to access the Engine Control Unit (ECU) of modern Ducatis and perform fault diagnosis; identifying and clearing fault codes that give rise to an amber EOBD warning light on the instrument panel. And whilst JHS Ducati servicing is offered at competitive prices it is no less comprehensive or thorough; we strictly adhere to, or exceed, all factory service specifications and use only genuine Ducati parts.

Pre-2007 Ducati models
Ducati engines up to model year 2007 have their first service from new at 600 miles. Thereafter they require servicing every 6000 miles or 12 months - whichever is sooner. At 12000 miles or 2 years they must have a more comprehensive overhaul that includes replacement of the timing belts.

Annual or 6,000 mile service


Two-year or 12,000 mile service (including timing belt replacement)

Warranty and service record
Our customers are often those with bikes that have passed out of the two year factory warranty period and are looking for a capable and experienced, independent alternative to the high cost of main dealer servicing. JHS provide detailed receipts and stamp service books, maintaining the continuity of the service record for your Ducati motorcycle.

Timely servicing
Many riders are put off owning Italian superbikes from manufacturers such as Ducati by a reputation for exorbitant servicing costs. We'd agree that these bikes do need diligent attention to service intervals, especially the large 12000 mile/2-year service that includes replacing the timing belts and adjustment of the desmodromic valves. While the use of genuine Ducati parts does increase service costs, our workshop labour charges are essentially the same as they would be for any other type of superbike.

Independent Ducati servicing in Bristol

Affordable Ducati service.

Thinking about buying a pre-owned Ducati? To repeat some oft-given advice: when considering buying a used or second hand Ducati it’s wise to avoid any bikes that are not accompanied by evidence of regular and timely servicing. Concerns about Ducati reliability have diminished with the more recent bikes manufactured at the Bologna factory since the late 1990s, when a stringent quality-control review took place. In our experience a well-maintained and regularly serviced Ducati should be just as reliable as any other make of bike.
