Ducati Diavel Service Manual / Maintenance operations / Maintenance operations / Adjusting the clutch lever and front brake lever

The clutch lever (1) is fitted with a span adjuster (2) which serves to alter the distance of the lever from the handlebar.

The lever distance can be adjusted through 10 clicks of the dial (2). Turn clockwise to increase lever distance. Turn the adjuster counter clockwise to decrease lever distance.

When the clutch lever (1) is operated, drive from the engine to the gearbox and the drive wheel is disengaged. Correct use of the clutch lever is very important in all riding situations, especially when moving off.

The position of the front brake lever (3) can be adjusted in the same way.

Warning

Any adjustment of clutch and brake levers must only be carried out when motorcycle is stationary.
