Regular maintenance for the 2019-2020 Ducati Panigale V4 R
This is maintenance that you can do yourself (though the manual says you need a dealer to do it).
Using the motorcycle under extreme conditions, such as very damp and muddy roads or dusty and dry environment, could cause above-average wear of components like the drive system, the brakes or the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, the engine could get damaged. Therefore, this might translate in required service or replacement of the wear parts earlier than specified in the scheduled maintenance chart.
Every 500 km/300 miles miles OR 6 months (whichever comes earlier, perform the following maintenance:
|Check engine oil level|
Every 1000 km/600 miles miles OR 6 months (whichever comes earlier, perform the following maintenance:
|Check brake fluid level|
|Check tyre pressure and wear|
|Check the drive chain tension and lubrication|
|Check brake pads. If necessary, contact your Dealer to replace components|
