Ducati Diavel Owners Manual: Tubeless tyres

Front tyre pressure: 2.50 Bar (rider only) - 2.6 Bar (with passenger and/or bags) rear tyre pressure: 2.50 Bar (rider only) - 2.6 Bar (with passenger and/or bags) as tyre pressures are affected by changes in temperature and altitude; check and adjust them whenever you are riding in areas where there are large variations in temperature or altitude.

Important


Check and adjust the pressures with the tyres cold.

To prevent distortion of the front wheel rim, increase tyre pressure by 0.2×0.3 Bar when riding on bumpy roads.

Tyre repair or change (tubeless tyres)

With minor punctures, tubeless tyres take a long time to deflate, as they tend to hold the air inside. If you find low pressure on one tyre, check the tyre for punctures.

Warning


Punctured tyres must be renewed.

Replace with tyres of the original brand and type.

Be sure to tighten the valve caps securely to avoid leaks when riding. Never fit tyres with inner tubes, as these can cause the tyre to burst suddenly, with possibly serious consequences for the rider and passenger.

After renewing a tyre, the wheel must be balanced.

Important


Do not remove or alter the position of the wheel balancing weights.

Note


Have the tyres replaced at a ducati dealer or authorised service centre. Correct removal and installation of the wheels is essential.

As some parts of the abs (such as sensors and phonic wheels) are mounted to the wheels and require specific adjustment.

Minimum tread depth

Measure tread depth (s, fig. 155) At the point where tread is most worn down.

It should not be less than 2 mm, and in any case not less than the legal limit.

Minimum tread depth


Important


Visually inspect the tyres at regular intervals for cracks and cuts, especially on the side walls, and bulges or large stains that indicate internal damage. Replace them if badly damaged.

Remove any stones or other foreign bodies stuck in the tread.
