Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Adjusting the front fork

The front fork used on this motorcycle has rebound, compression and spring preload adjustment.

The settings are adjusted using external adjuster screws.

  1. To adjust rebound damping (fig. 109);
  2. To adjust spring preload (fig. 109);
  3. To adjust compression damping (fig. 110).

Adjusting the front fork


Park the motorcycle in a stable position on its side stand.

Turn the adjuster (1) on fork leg top with a flat screwdriver to adjust rebound damping.

Turn the adjuster (3) on fork leg bottom with a flat screwdriver to adjust compression damping.

Turn the adjusting screws (1 and 3) to adjust the dampening.

Turn the screw all the way in to set the hardest damping (position "0"). Starting from this position, turning anticlockwise, you can count the turns.

To change preload of the spring inside each fork leg, turn the hex. Adjuster (2, fig. 109) With a 22 mm hexagon wrench, starting from the fully open position (clockwise). From reference (a, fig. 109), Every full turn clockwise corresponds to 1 mm of preload of the spring, up to a maximum of 15 mm, corresponding to 3 full turns.

Adjusting the front fork


Standard settings, from fully open position, are as follows: compression: 1 and a half turns; rebound: 1 and a half turns.

Spring preload: fully open (anticlockwise).
