Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Chain lubrication

The chain fitted on your motorcycle has o-rings that keep dirt out of and lubricant inside the sliding parts.

So as not to damage these seals when cleaning the chain, use special solvents and avoid aggressive washing with highpressure steam cleaners.

After cleaning, blow the chain dry with compressed air or wipe with an absorbent material, then lubricate each link with shell advance chain or advance teflon chain.

Important


Using non-specific lubricants may cause severe damage to the chain and the front and rear sprockets.
