Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Chain lubrication

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.
