Ducati Diavel Service Manual: General safety rules

Carbon monoxide

When a maintenance operation must be performed with the engine running, maker sure that the working area is wellventilated.

Never run the engine in an enclosed space.

Warning

Exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, which is a poisonous gas that can cause unconsciousness or even death if inhaled.

Run the engine outdoors or, if working indoors, use an exhaust fume extraction system.

Fuel

Always make sure the working area is well ventilated. Keep any sources of ignition, such as cigarettes, open flames or sparks, well away from working area and fuel storage area.

Warning

Petrol is highly flammable and can explode under certain conditions. Keep away from children.

Hot parts

Warning

The engine and exhaust parts become hot when the motorcycle engine is running and will stay hot for some time after the engine has been stopped. Wear heat-resistant gloves before handling these components or allow the engine and exhaust system to cool down before proceeding.

Warning

The exhaust system might be hot even after engine is switched off; take special care not to touch the exhaust system with any part of your body and do not park the motorcycle next to inflammable material (wood, leaves, etc.).

Used engine oil

Warning

Prolonged or repeated contact with used engine oil may cause skin cancer. If working with engine oil on a daily basis, make it a rule to wash your hands thoroughly with soap immediately afterwards. Keep away from children.

Brake pad dust

Never clean the brake assemblies using compressed air or a dry brush.

Warning

Inhalation of asbestos fibres is a proven cause of respiratory illness and cancer.

Brake fluid

Warning

Avoid spilling brake fluid onto plastic, rubber or painted parts of the motorcycle to avoid the risk of damage. Protect these parts with a clean shop cloth before proceeding to service the motorcycle. Keep away from children.

Coolant level

Engine coolant contains ethylene glycol, which may ignite under particular conditions, producing invisible flames.

Although the flames from burning ethylene glycol are not visible, they are still capable of causing severe burns.

Warning

Take care not to spill engine coolant on the exhaust system or engine parts. These parts may be hot and ignite the coolant, which will subsequently burn with invisible flames.

Coolant (ethylene glycol) is an irritant and is poisonous when ingested. Keep away from children.

Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. The coolant is under pressure and will cause severe burns if it comes into contact with the skin.

The cooling fan operates automatically: keep hands well clear and make sure your clothing does not snag on the fan.

Battery

Warning

The battery gives off explosive gases; never cause sparks or allow naked flames and cigarettes near the battery. When charging the battery, ensure that the working area is properly ventilated.
