Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Lubricating cables and joints

Ducati Diavel Owners Manual / Main maintenance operations / Lubricating cables and joints

Check the outer sheath of the throttle control and cold start lever cables for damage at regular intervals. The outer plastic cover should not be flattened or cracked. Operate the controls to make sure the inner cables slide smoothly inside the outer sheath: if you feel any friction or catching, have the cable replaced by a ducati dealer or authorised service centre.

To avoid this kind of problem with the throttle cable, unscrew the two retaining screws (1, fig. 133) To open the case and then the grease cable ends and pulley (2, fig. 134) With shell advance grease or retinax lx2 grease.

Warning


Close the twistgrip housing carefully, inserting the cable in the pulley.

Refit the housing and tighten the screws (1) to 10 nm.

To ensure smooth operation of the side stand pivot, remove dirt and apply shell alvania r3 grease to all friction points.
