Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Inspection of the gear selector forks

Ducati Diavel Service Manual / Engine / Gearbox assembly / Gearbox shafts / Inspection of the gear selector forks

Visually inspect the gear selector forks. Bent forks must be renewed as they may lead to difficulties in gear changing or may suddenly disengage when under load.

Use a feeler gauge to check the clearance of each fork in its gear groove.

If the service limit has been exceeded, check whether or not it is necessary to replace the gear or the fork by referring to the limits specified for each part (sect. 3 - 1.1, Gearbox).
