If I use a k&n oil filter when I do my oil change, will it void my 2 years warranty?

According to the Magnuson-Moss Act, no.  Ducati would have to prove the part caused the failure.  There have been cases where an after market part caused the failure but I wouldn't expect that to be the case with the K&N, Fram maybe.

one more question .. the ducati book i got says that the oil changes have to be made only by ducati dealers or certified shops... otherwise the warranty will be voided ..
is that true? i want to do the oil change myself and bring it to this shop to reset the computer, adjust the chain and the rest .. it cuts the bill in half (doing my own oil change)  Huh?

Magnuson-Moss Act covers that too.  You do not have to bring the bike to a dealer for anything but warranty work.  You must keep records and receipts though.

Yep - in the US it's a lot harder for companies to claim a voided warranty for things like doing your own oil change or other DIY work that can't reasonably tied to warranty claim.

Changing your own oil won't have any bearing on something like, say your fuel pump failing. No way they two are linked and Mgnuson-Moss prevents a company from rejecting your claim in an instance like that.
