Ducati Diavel Service Manual: The battery charging circuit and power distribution

On the diavel, the +15v (key on power) voltage does not come from a conventional ignition key, but from pin 30 of the hands free relay. This relay is switched to closed state by the hands free unit when the latter enables power on for the ignition and engine. The hands free relay receives +30v voltage (battery voltage), protected by a general 30a fuse.

The three phase alternator has three windings (l1, l2, l3), connected to one another in a "triangle" or "delta" configuration. The electrical terminals r, s and t are connected to the voltage regulator.

The battery charging circuit and power distribution


The drawing illustrates the "triangle" or "delta" configuration connection of the three windings of the three phase alternator.

The voltage regulator is constructed with specific electronic circuits (using mosfet instead of scr diodes) which limit operating temperature and, as a result, improve reliability. The regulator can withstand a maximum current of 50a (maximum current for the regulator used on sbk models is 35a) and has integrated waterproof electrical connections.

In the event of incorrect battery voltage (too low or too high), the message "battery" is shown in the service display. The dds also indicates if an excessively low or high battery voltage is detected (battery voltage diagnosis: high voltage, low voltage).

In the event of a battery charging circuit fault, check the following in the order given:

Riding modes
The rider may select between four different riding modes (sport, touring, urban and enduro) from the dashboard and via the "turn indicator reset" button (3). Each riding mode contains settings for ...

Ground connection locations
The negative cable, which is normally connected to the negative pole of the battery, is fastened to the crankcase. From here, the cable branches off and splits up within the electrical system to ca ...

Moving off
Disengage the clutch by squeezing the clutch lever. Push down the gear change lever firmly with the tip of your foot to engage first gear. Raise the engine revs by turning the throttle twistgrip while gradually releasing the clutch lever. The motorcycle will start moving. Release the ...

Removal of the cylinder/piston assembly
Loosen the clamps (7) and remove the hoses (8) and (9) from the cylinder barrels (10) and from the alternator-side crankcase cover. If damaged, unscrew the unions (6). Note The following procedure is described with the engine removed from the frame and the cylinder head r ...

Vehicle speed indicator
This function displays vehicle speed (km/h or mph depending on the set measurement system). The dashboard receives information about the actual speed and displays the number increased by 5%. Maximum speed displayed is 299 km/h (186 mph). Over 299 km/h (186 mph) the display will show a s ...
