Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: General cleaning

To preserve the finish of metal parts and paintwork, wash and clean your motorcycle at regular intervals, anyway according to the road conditions you ride in. Use specific products, where possible biodegradable. Avoid aggressive detergents or solvents.

Use only water and neutral soap to clean the plexiglas and the seat.

Important


Do not wash your motorcycle immediately after use, as marks can form due to evaporation of the water on hot surfaces. Never clean the motorcycle using hot or high pressure water jets. Cleaning the motorcycle with a high pressure water jet may lead to seizure or serious faults in the front fork, wheel hub assembly, electric system, headlight (fogging), front fork seals, air inlets or exhaust silencers, with consequent loss of safety.

Clean off stubborn dirt or exceeding grease from engine parts using a degreasing agent. Be sure to avoid contact with drive parts (chain, sprockets, etc.) Rinse with warm water and dry all surfaces with chamois leather.

Warning

Switch headlight on for a short time to dry up any condensate.
