Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Running-in recommendations

Ducati Diavel Owners Manual / Directions for use / Running-in recommendations

Maximum rpm (fig. 114)

Rotation speed for running-in period and during standard use (rpm)

  1. Up to 1000 km;
  2. From 1000 to 2500 km.

Up to 1000 km

During the first 1000 km, keep an eye on the rev counter.

It should never exceed 5500÷6000 rpm.

During the first hours of riding, it is advisable to run the engine at varying load and rpm, though still within recommended limit.

To this end, roads with plenty of bends and even slightly hilly areas are ideal for a most efficient running-in of engine, brakes and suspension.

For the first 100 km use the brakes gently. Avoid sudden or prolonged braking. This will allow the friction material on the brake pads to bed in against the brake discs.

To allow all the mechanical moving parts in the motorcycle to adapt to one another, and to avoid shortening the life of the main engine components, it is advisable to avoid sudden acceleration and running the engine at high rpm for too long, especially uphill.

Furthermore, the drive chain should be inspected frequently.

Lubricate as required.

Running-in recommendations


From 1000 to 2500 km

At this point, you can squeeze some more power out of your engine. However never exceed 7000 rpm.

Important


Throughout the running-in period, be careful to stick to the recommended maintenance schedule and periodic service intervals indicated in the warranty booklet. Failure to follow these instructions releases ducati motor holding s.P.A. From any liability whatsoever for any engine damage or shorter engine life

Strict observance of running-in recommendations will ensure longer engine life and reduce the likelihood of overhauls and tune-ups.
