Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Adjusting the rear shock absorber

The adjuster (1) located on the lower connection holding the shock absorber to the swingarm adjusts the damping during the rebound phase (return).

The knob (2), located on the left side of the motorcycle, adjusts the preload of the shock absorber external spring.

Turn the adjuster (1) clockwise to increase damping h; or counter clockwise to reduce damping s.

Standard setting from the fully closed position (clockwise): -unscrew adjuster (1) by 8 clicks.

Spring preload: 15 mm.

The two nuts (2) on the upper part of the shock absorber serve to adjust the preload on the external spring. To change spring preload, slacken the upper locking ring nut. Then tighten or slacken the lower ring nut to increase or decrease spring preload.
