Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Moving off

  1. Disengage the clutch by squeezing the clutch lever.
  2. Push down the gear change lever firmly with the tip of your foot to engage first gear.
  3. Raise the engine revs by turning the throttle twistgrip while gradually releasing the clutch lever. The motorcycle will start moving.
  4. Release the clutch lever completely and accelerate.
  5. To shift up, close the throttle to slow down engine, disengage the clutch, lift the gear change lever and let go of clutch lever.

To shift down, proceed as follows: release the twistgrip, pull the clutch control lever, shortly speed up to help gears synchronise, shift down (engage next lower gear) and release the clutch.

The controls should be used correctly and timely: when riding uphill, do not hesitate to shift down as soon as the motorcycle starts to slow down, so you will avoid stressing the engine and the motorcycle abnormally.

Important


Avoid sudden acceleration, as this may lead to misfiring and transmission snatching. The clutch lever should not be held in longer than necessary after a gear is engaged, otherwise friction parts may overheat and wear out.

Warning


Prolonged rearing could deactivate the abs system.
