Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Checking the camshafts and supports

Ducati Diavel Service Manual / Engine / Cylinder head assemblies / Camshafts / Checking the camshafts and supports

Place the camshaft between two centres and check the run-out on the areas indicated using two dial gauges.

Service limit: 0.1 Mm.

Checking the camshafts and supports


Visually inspect the camshaft tracks for scoring and abnormal wear. If any of the above defects are found, the camshaft should be renewed.
