Ducati Diavel 2011-2012 Maintenance Schedule

Maintenance Schedule (scheduled maintenance and service internvals) for the Ducati Diavel 2011-2012

The Ducati Diavel 2011-2012 maintenance schedule — sourced from the owner’s manual.

This applies to these models:

  • Ducati Diavel 2011
  • Ducati Diavel 2012

It also applies to the “Ducati Diavel Carbon” sub-models — similar motorcycle, same maintenance.

Regular maintenance for the Ducati Diavel 2011-2012

This is maintenance that you can do yourself (though the manual says you need a dealer to do it).

Every 1000km (600 miles) you have to perform the following maintenance:

Check the level of the engine oil
Adjust chain tension

That’t it — pretty simple list!

Ducati Diavel 2011-2012 Maintenance Schedule Table

This is the scheduled maintenance to be done every 12,000 kms (7,500 miles) or one year — whichever you reach first.

In other words, if you get to one year and you’ve done only 5,000 kms (or 3,000 miles), you still need to do this maintenance!

You do a subset of the below at 1000kms (600 miles). But I haven’t included that because the dealer usually includes it in the sale price. If they haven’t, refer to the manual.
