Regular maintenance for the Ducati Diavel 2014
This is maintenance that you can do yourself (though the manual says you need a dealer to do it).
Every 1000km (600 miles) or six months — whatever comes sooner — do the following maintenance: have to perform the following maintenance:
|Check engine oil level|
|Check brake and clutch fluid level|
|Check tyre pressure and wear|
|Check the drive chain tension and lubrication|
|Check brake pads. If necessary, contact your dealer to replace pad|
You don’t have to do all that every six months but it helps. Especially if you’re riding it often.
