Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Checking brake pads for wear

Check brake pads wear through the inspection hole in the callipers.

Change both pads if friction material thickness of even just one pad is about 1 mm.

Warning


Friction material wear beyond this limit would lead to metal support contact with the brake disc thus compromising braking efficiency, disc integrity and rider safety.

Have the brake pads replaced at a ducati dealer or authorised service centre.
