General indications
Warranty
In your own interest, and in order to ensure the reliability
of the motorcycle, you are strongly advised to contact a
Ducati Dealer or Authorized Service Centre for any
servicing that requires particular technical expertise.
Our highly qualified staff have access to the specialised
tools required to perform any servicing job to the highest
professional standards, using only Ducati original spare
parts as the best guarantee for perfect interchangeability,
smooth running and long service life.
Symbols
Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. advises you to read this manual
carefully in order to familiarise yourself with your motorcycle.
If in doubt, please contact a Ducati Dealer or Authorized
Service Centre. You will find the information in the manual
useful on trips (which Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. hopes will
be smooth and enjoyable), and it will help you obtain top
performance from your motorcycle for a long time.
This booklet uses a set of symbols with special meanings:
Warning
Failure to comply with these instructions may put you
at risk, and could lead to severe injury or even death.
Important
Risk of damage to the motorcycle and/or its
components.
Notes
Additional information about the current operation.
All Ducati motorcycles come with a Warranty Booklet.
However, the warranty does not apply to motorcycles used
in competitions. If any motorcycle part is tampered with,
modified, or replaced with parts other than original Ducati
spare parts during the warranty period, the warranty is
automatically invalidated.

References to the right or left side of the motorcycle
assume you are sitting on the seat, facing forward.
Useful road safety information
Warning
Read this section before riding your motorcycle.
Many accidents are the result of the inexperience of the
rider. Always make sure you have your licence with you; you
need a valid licence that entitles you to ride a motorcycle.
Do not lend your motorcycle to persons who are
inexperienced or do not hold a valid licence.
Riders and passengers must always wear appropriate
clothing and a safety helmet.
Do not wear loose clothes or accessories that could become
tangled in the controls or limit your field of vision.
Never start or run the engine in enclosed space. Exhaust
gases are toxic and may lead to loss of consciousness or
even death within a short time.
The rider should keep his/her feet on the footrests when the
motorcycle is in motion.
Always hold the handlebars firmly with both hands so you
will be ready for sudden changes in direction or in the road
surface. The pillion passenger should always hold on to
the strap on the pillion seat with both hands.
Obey the legal requirements and observe national and local
regulations.
Always respect speed limits where these apply, and never
exceed the speed allowed by the particular visibility, road and
traffic conditions.
Always signal your intention to turn or change lane in good
time, using the appropriate turn signals.
Be sure you are clearly visible and avoid riding within the
blind spot of a vehicle in front of you.
Be very careful at road junctions, or when riding in areas near
exits from private land or car parks, or on the slip roads to
motorways.
Always turn off the engine when refuelling. Be extremely
careful not to spill fuel on the engine or on the exhaust pipe
when refuelling.
Do not smoke when refuelling.
While refuelling, it is possible to inhale noxious fuel vapours.
Should any fuel drops be spilled on your skin or clothing,
immediately wash with soap and water and change your
clothing.
Always remove the key if leaving your motorcycle unattended.
The engine, exhaust pipes and silencers remain hot for a long
time.
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.).
Park your motorcycle where no one is likely to knock against
it, and use the sidestand.
Never park on uneven or soft ground, or your motorcycle
may fall over.

E
E
Riding with a full load
Your motorcycle is designed for travelling over long
distances with a full load in complete safety.
Even weight distribution is critical for maintaining safety
standards, and to avoid getting into difficulties when
making sudden manoeuvres or riding on bumpy roads.
Information on load capacity
The total weight of the motorcycle in running order with
rider, luggage and additional accessories should not exceed
390 kg.
8
Arrange your luggage or heavy accessories in the lowest
possible position and as close to centre of the motorcycle
as possible.
Secure the luggage firmly to the motorcycle structure.
Luggage incorrectly secured may cause the motorcycle to
become unstable.
Never attach bulky or heavy objects to the top yoke or front
mudguard, as this would cause dangerous instability.
Do not insert objects into gaps in the frame, where they
could interfere with moving parts.
Check that the tyres are inflated to the pressure indicated
on page 86 and that they are in good condition.
Identification data
E
All Ducati motorcycles have two identification numbers,
one for the frame (fig. 1) and one for the engine (fig. 2).
Frame number
Engine number
Notes
These numbers indicate the motorcycle model and
should be quoted when ordering spare parts.

When you switch the LAP function off from the menu, the
lap in progress will not be saved.
If the LAP function is active and the display is suddenly
switched off (Key-Off), the LAP function is switched off
automatically (even if the timer was ON, the lap in
progress is not saved).
If the timer is not stopped, when it reaches 99 minutes,
59 seconds and 99 hundredths of a second, it restarts from
0 (zero) and continues until the function is switched off.
If, however, the LAP function is switched on and the
memory has not been cleared, but fewer than 30 laps
have been saved (e.g. 18 laps), the display will save any
remaining laps until the memory is saturated (in this case,
it will save a further 12 laps).
In this function, lap time only is displayed, but other data are
also saved (MAX speed, MAX rpm, rev limiter if reached)
for viewing at a later date in the Lap Memory function.

If you press switch (1, fig. 8) in position B “▼“, the display
scrolls through the 30 saved times, before returning to the
1st lap.
If you press switch (1, fig. 8) in position B “▼“ for 3 seconds
while the saved times are displayed, the display immediately
resets all the saved times. In this case, if the LAP function
was active, it is switched off automatically.
The MAX speed saved is the maximum speed indicated on
the display in Lap function.
During saving, if the MAX speed shown exceeds 299 km/h
(186 mph), the speed reached is displayed (e.g. 316 km/h).
If there is no reading in the memory, the 30 times are shown,
with the lap timer showing “00.00.00”, MAX rpm = 0 and
MAX speed = 0.
During the lap, if the engine reaches one of the two

Display backlight
The instrument panel backlight is switched on only if the side
lights or low/high beam is on.
The instrument panel has sensors that measure ambient
temperature and light intensity, and automatically turns the
backlighting on or off accordingly.
Intelligent headlight switch-off
This function helps reduce battery use by automatically
switching off the headlight. The device is triggered in
3 cases:
- in the first case, if you turn the key from OFF to ON and
do not start the engine within 60 seconds, the headlight
is turned off and will be turned on again only when the
engine is next switched on;
- in the second case, after the normal use of the
motorcycle with the lights on, if the engine is stopped
using the RUN-STOP on the right-hand handlebar switch.
In this case, the headlamp is switched off 60 seconds
after the engine is switched off, and only switched on
again the next time the engine is started;
- in the third case, the headlight is switched off while the
engine is being started and switched back on again
when the engine is running.
Intelligent headlight switch-on
This function allows programmed activation of the headlight
even with the motorcycle off (Key-Off).
Immediately after key-off, the instrument panel remains
active for 60 seconds, thus allowing the headlight to be
switched on if the button (1, fig. 8) is switched to position B
“▼”.
During these 60 seconds, each time switch (1, fig. 8) is
pressed in position B “▼”, the instrument panel will activate
the headlight for 30 seconds; each press of switch (1, fig. 8)
in position B “▼” will add to the headlight activation time,
up to a maximum of 6 presses (equivalent to a maximum
activation time of 180 seconds).
The first time you press the button (1, fig. 8) in position B
“▼”, the 30 second period starts, thus switching on the
headlight. Further switch-on time can be added only if you
press the button again within these 30 seconds. If the
30 second period has elapsed, no further multiples of
30 seconds can be added, and the instrument panel will
switch off the headlight.
To reset this function, you must perform at least one Key-On/
Key-Off.
If the battery power is interrupted at any time while this
function is active, when power is restored, the instrument
panel will de-activate the function (the instrument panel
does not remain active for 60 seconds).

E
The immobilizer system
For additional anti-theft protection, the motorcycle is
equipped with an IMMOBILIZER, an electronic system
that locks the engine automatically whenever the ignition
switch is turned off.
The grip of each ignition key contains an electronic device
that modulates the output signal from a special antenna in
the switch when the ignition is switched On. The modulated
signal represents the “password” (which is changed at each
start-up) by which the ECU recognizes the ignition key.
The ECU will only allow the engine to start if it recognises
this password.
Notes
The two keys have a small tag (1) attached, which
shows their identification number.
Keys (fig. 24)
The owner receives a set of keys, comprising:
- 2 black keys (B).
These contain the “code” of the immobilizer system.
Notes
B
Your Ducati dealer may ask you to produce your Code
Card in order to carry out certain servicing operations.
The black keys (B) are the keys for normal use, and are
used to:
- start the engine;
- open the lock on the fuel tank filler cap;
- open the seat lock.

fig. 24
Warning
E
Keep the keys separate, and store the tags (1) in a safe
place.
It is also advisable to use only one of the black keys to start
the motorcycle.
Code card
A CODE CARD (fig. 25) is supplied with the keys. This shows
the electronic code (A, fig. 26) that must be used if the
engine is locked by the immobilizer and consequently
does not start when the key is turned to ON.
Warning
Keep the CODE CARD in a safe place. We advise the
user to keep the code printed on the CODE CARD on his/her
person at all times in order to be able to override the engine
lock using the procedure described below, in the event of a
malfunction of the immobilizer system, signalled by
illumination of the amber diagnostic light (9, fig. 4).
This operation is only possible if the electronic code
indicated on the code card is known.

Operation
When the ignition key is turned from ON to OFF, the
immobilizer system activates the engine lock. When the
ignition key is turned from OFF to ON to start the engine:
1) if the code is recognised, the protection system releases
the engine lock. When you press the START (2, fig. 31)
switch, the engine will start up.
2) if the motorcycle diagnostics warning light (9, fig. 4)
comes on and if, when you press the button (1, fig. 8) in the
“▼” position, the “Error IMMO” message appears on the
display, indicating that the code has not been recognised.
In this case, turn the ignition key back to OFF and then to
ON again. If the engine still does not start, try again with the
other black key. If the engine still does not start, contact
the DUCATI Service network.
Warning
Sharp knocks can damage the electronic components
inside the key.
Always use the same key throughout the procedure. Using
different keys could prevent the system from recognising
the code in the key.
42
Duplicate keys
If you need additional keys, contact your DUCATI Service
Centre with all the keys you have in your possession and
your CODE CARD.
The Ducati Service Centre will program all the new keys as
well as any keys you already have.
You may be asked to provide proof that you are the
legitimate owner of the motorcycle.
The codes for any keys not present during the memory
programming procedure are cancelled, to ensure that any
keys that may have been lost can no longer be used to
start the engine.
Notes
If you sell your motorcycle, do not forget to pass on all
the keys and the CODE CARD to the new owner.

When parking on a slope, always park with the rear wheel
on the downhill side.
To lower the sidestand, hold the motorcycle handlebars
with both hands and, with your foot, push down the stand (1)
until fully extended. Tilt the motorcycle until the sidestand
is resting on the ground.
Notes
It is advisable to check periodically that the stand
mechanism (consisting of two springs, one inside the other)
and safety sensor (2) are working properly.
Notes
The engine can be started with the sidestand down
and the gearbox in neutral. If starting with a gear engaged,
pull in the clutch lever (in this case the sidestand must be up).

Front fork adjusters
E
The front fork can be adjusted for rebound, compression and
spring preload.
The settings are adjusted by way of external adjuster screws:
1
1) to adjust rebound damping (fig. 42);
2) to adjust inner spring preload (fig. 42);
3) to adjust compression damping (fig. 43).
2
Park the motorcycle in a stable position on its sidestand.
To adjust the rebound damping setting, turn the adjuster (1)
on the top of each fork leg using the special wrench.
As you turn the adjusters (1 and 3), you will hear them click.
Each click corresponds to different damping setting. The
stiffest damping setting is obtained with the adjuster turned
fully clockwise to the “0” position. Start with this position
and turn counterclockwise. Count the clicks, which
correspond to position 1, 2 and so forth.

Adjust both fork legs to the same setting.
fig. 43
56
Rear shock absorber adjusters (fig. 44)
The shock absorber has external adjusters that enable you to
adjust the suspension to suit the load on the motorcycle.
Adjuster (1), located on the left-hand side at the point at
which the shock absorber is fixed to the swingarm, controls
rebound damping.
The adjuster (2) on the shock absorber reservoir controls
compression damping.
Turn the adjusters (1 and 2) clockwise to stiffen the damping
or anti-clockwise to soften it.
STANDARD setting:
from the fully closed position (turned fully clockwise), unscrew:
adjuster (1) by 2 turns;
adjuster (2) by 2 turns.
Spring preload: 20 mm.
The two nuts (3) on the upper part of the shock absorber
serve to adjust the preload on the external spring. To
change spring preload, slacken off the upper lock nut.
Then tighten or loosen the lower nut to increase or
decrease spring preload as required.
E

fig. 44
57
E
Once the desired spring preload has been set, re-tighten the
upper lock nut.
Warning
Use a pin wrench to turn the preload adjusting nut.
Take special care when turning the nut, to avoid injuring
your hand by striking it violently against other parts of the
motorcycle if the wrench suddenly slips off the nut while
turning.
Warning
The shock absorber is filled with gas under pressure
and may cause severe damage if taken apart by unskilled
persons.
If you plan to carry a passenger and luggage, adjust the rear
shock absorber spring load to the maximum setting to
improve the handling characteristics of the motorcycle and
to avoid the possibility of ground contact. It may also be
necessary to adjust the rebound damping accordingly.
58
Riding the motorcycle
To allow all the mechanical moving parts in the motorcycle to
adapt to one another, and to avoid shortening the life of the
main engine components, it is advisable to avoid sudden
acceleration and running the engine at high rpm for too long,
especially uphill.
It is also advisable to check the drive chain frequently and
ensure that it is lubricated as required.
Running-in precautions
Max. rpm (fig. 45)
Rpm limits to be observed during the running-in period and in
normal use:
1) up to 1000 km;
2) from 1000 to 2500 km.
Up to 1000 km
During the first 1000 km keep an eye on the rev counter.
The indicator must not exceed 5500-6000 rpm.
During the first hours of riding, it is advisable to continuously
vary the load on the engine and the rpm, though still keeping
within the above limits.
For this reason, roads with numerous bends and hilly areas
are ideal for running in the engine, brakes and suspension.
For the first 100 km, use the brakes gently. Do not brake
violently or keep brake applied for too long. This will enable
a correct break-in of friction material on brake pads against
brake discs.
59
E
E
From 1000 to 2500 km
At this point, you can ask for more power from the engine,
being careful, however, never to exceed 7000 rpm.
0 ÷ 1000 Km
1000 ÷ 2500 Km
Important
Throughout the running-in period, be careful to stick
to the recommended maintenance schedule and periodic
service intervals indicated in the warranty booklet.
Failure to follow these instructions releases Ducati Motor
Holding S.p.A. from any liability whatsoever for any
engine damage or shorter engine life.
Keeping to the running-in recommendations will ensure
longer engine life and reduce the need for overhauls and
re-tuning.

fig. 45
Pre-ride checks
Warning
Failure to carry out these checks before starting may
result in damage to the motorcycle and injury to rider.
Before starting, check the following points:
Fuel level in the tank
Check the fuel level in the tank. Re-fuel if necessary (page 66).
Engine oil level
Check the oil level in the sump through the sight glass.
Top up if necessary (page 88).
Brake and clutch fluid
Check the fluid levels in the respective reservoirs (page 73).
Coolant
Check coolant level in the expansion reservoir. Top up if
necessary (page 72).
Tyre condition
Check the pressure and condition of the tyres (page 86).
Controls
Operate the brake, clutch, throttle and gear change controls
(levers, pedals and twistgrip) to check that they function
correctly.
Lights and indicators
Make sure the lights, indicators and horn work properly.
Replace any burnt-out bulbs (page 80).
Key locks
Check that the fuel filler cap (page 52) and the seat are
locked (page 53).
Sidestand
Make sure the sidestand operates smoothly and is in the
correct position (page 54).
E
Warning
If there are any faults or malfunctions, do not start
the motorcycle and contact your DUCATI Dealer or
Authorized Service Centre.

Never start or run the engine in enclosed space.
Exhaust gases are toxic and may lead to loss of
consciousness or even death within a short time.
1) Turn the ignition key to ON (fig. 46). Check that both
the green light N and the red light
on the instrument
panel come on.
Important
The oil pressure warning light should go out a few
seconds after the engine has started (page 11).
Warning
The sidestand should be in rest position (horizontal),
otherwise the safety sensor prevents the engine starting.

Moving off
Braking
1) Disengage the clutch by squeezing the clutch lever.
2) Push down the gearchange lever firmly with the tip of your
foot to engage first gear.
3) Raise the engine revs by turning the throttle twistgrip
while gradually releasing the clutch lever. The motorcycle
will start moving.
4) Release the clutch lever completely and accelerate.
5) To change up to the next gear, close the throttle to
reduce the engine revs, disengage the clutch, lift the
gearchange lever and release the clutch lever.
To change down, proceed as follows: release the twistgrip,
disengage the clutch, briefly rev the engine to allow the
gears to synchronize, shift down and release the clutch lever.
Use the controls intelligently and opportunely: when riding
uphill, do not hesitate to shift down as soon as the
motorcycle starts to slow down, so you will avoid
overloading the engine and putting too much strain on the
the motorcycle generally.
Slow down in time, change down to use the engine brake,
then apply both brakes. Pull in the clutch lever before the
motorcycle comes to a stop to prevent the engine stalling.
Important
Avoid sudden acceleration, as this may lead to
misfiring and transmission snatching. The clutch lever should
not be held in longer than necessary after a gear is engaged,
otherwise friction parts may overheat and wear out.
64
Warning
Use both the brake lever and the brake pedal for
effective braking. Using only one of the brakes will give
you less braking power.
Never use the brake controls harshly or suddenly as you
may lock the wheels and lose control of the motorcycle.
When riding in the rain or on slippery surfaces, braking
capacity is significantly reduced. Always use the brakes
very gently and carefully when riding under these conditions.
Any sudden manoeuvres may lead to loss of control.
When riding down long, steep downhill slopes, change
down to use engine braking. Apply the brakes intermittently
for brief periods only. Keeping the brakes applied
continuously causes the friction material to overheat and
dangerously reduces braking effectiveness. Under-inflated
or over-inflated tyres reduce braking efficiency and may
adversely affect safe riding and road-holding on bends.
Stopping the motorcycle
Reduce speed, change down and release the throttle twistgrip.
Change down to engage first gear and then neutral. Apply the
brakes and bring the motorcycle to a complete stop. Switch
the engine off by turning the key to OFF (page 43).
Warning
Using padlocks or other locks designed to prevent
movement of the motorcycle (such as brake disc locks, rear
sprocket locks, and so on) is very dangerous, and may impair
motorcycle operation and the safety of rider and passenger.
Parking
Stop and park the motorcycle on the sidestand
(see page 54).
To prevent theft, turn the handlebar fully left and turn the
ignition key to the LOCK position.
If you park in a garage or other indoor area, make sure that
there is proper ventilation and that the motorcycle is not
near a source of heat.
If necessary, you can leave the sidelights on by turning the
key to position P.
Important
Do not leave the key at P for long periods or the

Checking the brake and clutch fluid level
E
The level must not fall below the MIN mark on the
corresponding reservoir (fig. 56) (the figure shows the front
and rear brake fluid reservoirs).
If the level is too low, air can get into the circuit, thus
impairing the efficiency of the system.
Brake and clutch fluid must be topped up and changed at
the intervals specified in the routine maintenance table
(see Warranty Booklet) by a Ducati Dealer or Authorized
Service Centre.
Important
It is recommended that all brake and clutch hoses be
renewed every four years.
fig. 56
Brake system
If there is excessive play at the brake lever or pedal even
though the brake pads are still in good condition, contact a
Ducati Dealer or Authorized Service Centre to have the
system inspected and any air expelled from the circuit.
Warning
Brake and clutch fluid can damage paintwork and
plastic parts, so avoid contact. Hydraulic fluid is corrosive
and can cause damage and injuries. Never mix fluids of
different qualities.
Check that the seals are in good condition.
73
E
Clutch system
If there is too much play at the clutch lever and the
motorcycle jumps or stops when a gear is engaged, this
indicates air in the system. Contact a Ducati Dealer or
Authorized Service Centre to have the system inspected
and the air bled from the system.
Warning
The clutch fluid level in the reservoir tends to rise as
the friction material on the clutch plates wears out. Do not
exceed the specified level (3 mm above the minimum level).
fig. 57
74
Checking the brake pads for wear (fig. 58)
The brake pads are marked with wear indicators so that they
can be checked without removing them from the calipers.
If the grooves in the pad friction material are still visible,
the pad is still in good condition.

Lubricating cables and linkages
The condition of the outer throttle and choke cables should
be checked at regular intervals. The outer cables should
show no signs of kinking or cracking. Operate the controls to
make sure the inner cables slide smoothly inside the outer
cables: if you feel any friction or catching, have the cable
replaced by a Ducati Dealer or Authorized Service Centre.
To prevent problems, periodically open the twistgrip
housing by unscrewing the two bolts (1, fig. 59) and
lubricate the ends of each control cable and the races
with SHELL Advance Grease or Retinax LX2.
1
Warning
Close the twistgrip housing carefully, inserting the
cable in the race.
Refit the housing and tighten the bolts (1) to 10 Nm.
To ensure smooth operation of the sidestand pivot, remove
dirt and apply SHELL Alvania R3 grease to all friction points.

Headlight aim (fig. 69)
To check the headlight aim, place the motorcycle upright
with the tyres inflated to the correct pressure and one person
sitting astride the motorcycle. The motorcycle should be
perfectly vertical, with its longitudinal axis at right angles to a
wall or screen at a distance of 10 metres. Draw a horizontal
line on the wall at the height of the centre of the headlight
and a vertical one in line with the longitudinal axis of the
motorcycle.
If possible, perform this check in conditions of low ambient
light.
Switch on the low beam headlight:
the height of the upper limit between the dark area and the
lit area must not be more than nine tenths of the height of
the centre of the headlamp from the ground.
Notes
This is the procedure specified by Italian regulations
for checking the maximum height of the light beam.
Owners in other countries should adapt this procedure
to the regulations in force in the country where the
motorcycle is used.

Tubeless tyres
Front tyre pressure:
2.1 bar - 2.3 kg/cm2.
Rear tyre pressure:
2.2 bar -2.4 kg/cm2.
As tyre pressures are affected by changes in temperature
and altitude, check and adjust them whenever you are
riding in areas where there are large variations in
temperature or altitude.
Important
Check and adjust the pressures with the tyres cold.
To prevent distortion of the front wheel rim, increase tyre
pressure by 0.2 to 0.3 bar when riding on bumpy roads.
Tyre repair or replacement (Tubeless)
With minor punctures, tubeless tyres take a long time to
deflate, as they tend to hold the air inside. If you find that
one of the tyres is slightly deflated, check the tyre for slow
punctures.
Warning
Punctured tyres must be renewed.
Replace with tyres of the original brand and type.
Be sure to tighten the valve dust caps securely to prevent
leaks while riding. Never fit tyres with inner tubes, as
these can cause the tyre to burst suddenly, with possibly
serious consequences for the rider and passenger.
After changing the tyre, the wheel must be balanced.
Important
Do not remove or alter the position of the wheel
balancing weights.
Notes
If tyres need changing, contact a Ducati Dealer or
Authorized Service Centre to make sure wheels are
removed and refitted correctly.
86
Minimum tread depth
Measure the tread depth (S, fig. 72) at the point where the
tread is most worn.
It should not be less than 2 mm, and in any case not less than
the legal limit.
E
S
Important
Visually inspect the tyres at regular intervals for cracks
and cuts, especially on the side walls, and bulges or large
stains that indicate internal damage. Replace them if badly
damaged.
Remove any stones or other foreign bodies stuck in the
tread.
fig. 72

Checking the engine oil level (fig. 73)
Check the engine oil level through the sight glass (1) on the
clutch-side crankcase cover. When checking oil level, the
motorcycle should be perfectly upright and the engine cold.
The oil level should be between the two marks next to the
sight glass. Top up the oil level with SHELL Advance Ultra 4,
if low. Undo the filler cap (2) and top up to correct level.
Replace the filler cap.

Spark plugs are an important part of the engine and should
be checked at regular intervals.
The condition of the spark plugs provides a good indication of
how well the engine is running.
Have the spark plugs inspected or renewed at a Ducati
Dealer or Authorized Workshop. Firstly, they will check the
colour of the ceramic insulator of the central electrode:
an even brown colour is a sign that the engine is in good
running order.
Notes
Secondly, they will check the central electrode for
wear and measure electrode gap. The electrode gap
should be 2-0.8 to 0.1 mm.

General cleaning
To preserve the original shine on metal surfaces and
paintwork, wash and clean your motorcycle at regular
intervals depending on the type of use and according to the
particular road conditions. Use specific products, where
possible biodegradable. Avoid aggressive detergents or
solvents.
Important
Do not wash your motorcycle immediately after use,
as marks can form due to evaporation of the water on hot
surfaces. Never clean the motorcycle using hot or highpressure water jets. Cleaning the motorcycle with a highpressure water jet may lead to seizure or serious faults in
the front fork, wheel hub assembly, electrical system,
front fork seals, air inlets or exhaust silencers, with
consequent loss of safety.
If parts of the engine are unusually dirty or greasy, use a
degreasing agent, avoiding contact with transmission
components (chain, front and rear sprockets, etc.). Rinse
with warm water and dry all surfaces with chamois leather.
90
Warning
There may be loss of braking efficiency immediately
after washing the motorcycle. Never grease or lubricate
the brake discs. This will cause loss of braking efficiency.
Clean the discs with an oil-free solvent.
Storing the motorcycle
Important notes
If the motorcycle is to be left unused for a long period, it is
advisable to carry out the following operations first:
clean the motorcycle;
drain the fuel from fuel tank;
pour a few drops of engine oil into the cylinders through
the spark plug bores, then turn the engine over by hand a
few times to form a protective film of oil on the inner
walls of the cylinder;
place the motorcycle on the paddock stand;
disconnect and remove the battery.
If the motorcycle has been left unused for more than a
month, the battery should be checked and re-charged if
necessary.
Protect the motorcycle with a specific motorcycle cover
that will not damage the paintwork or retain moisture.
This type of motorcycle cover is available from Ducati
Performance.
The legislation in some countries (France, Germany,
Great Britain, Switzerland, etc.) sets certain noise and
pollution standards.
Periodically carry out the required checks and renew parts as
necessary, using Ducati original spare parts, in compliance
with the regulations in the country concerned.

Safety warnings
Traffic Rules vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Know the
regulations in your jurisdiction before riding this motorcycle.
Warning
This motorcycle is designed and intended for use on
streets and other smooth, paved areas only. Do not use this
motorcycle on unpaved surfaces. Such use could lead to
upset or other accident.
Reporting of safety defects
If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause
a crash or could cause injury or death, you should immediately
inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) in addition to notifying Ducati North America. If
NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an
investigation, and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a
group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.
However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual
problems between you, your dealer, or Ducati North America.
To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline
toll-free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 366-0123 in Washington, D.C.
area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation,
Washington, D.C. 20590. You can also obtain other
information about motor vehicle safety from the Hotline.
Noise emission warranty
Ducati Motor S.p.A. warrants that this exhaust system, at the
time of sale, meets all applicable U.S. EPA Federal noise
standards. This warranty extends to the first person who
buys this exhaust system for purposes other than resale,
and to all subsequent buyers. Warranty claims should be
directed to: Ducati North America,
10443 Bandley Drive, Cupertino, California, 95014
Tel: 001.408.253.0499 - Fax: 001.408.253.4099.
Noise and exhaust emission control
system information
Source of Emissions
The combustion process produces carbon monoxide and
hydrocarbons. Control of hydrocarbons is very important
because under certain conditions, they react to form
photochemical smog when subjected to sunlight.
109
E
USA
For United States of America
version Only
USA
E
Carbon monoxide does not react in the same way, but is
toxic. Ducati utilizes lean carburetor settings and other
systems to reduce carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons.
(2) the use of the vehicle after such device or element of
design has been removed or rendered inoperative by any
person.
Exhaust Emission Control System
The Exhaust Emission Control System is composed of lean
carburetor settings, and no adjustments should be made
except idle speed adjustments with the throttle stop screw.
The Exhaust Emission Control System is separate from
the crankcase emission control system.
Among those acts presumed to constitute
tampering are the acts listed below:
(1) Removal of, or puncturing the muffler, baffles, header
pipes or any other component which conducts exhaust
gases.
(2) Removal or puncturing of any part of the intake system.
(3) Lack of proper maintenance.
(4) Replacing any moving part of the vehicle, or parts of the
exhaust or intake system, with parts other than those
specified by the manufacturer.
This product should be checked for repair or replacement if
the motorcycle noise has increased significantly through use.
Otherwise, the owner may become subject to penalties
under state and local ordinances.
Crankcase Emission Control System
The engine is equipped with a closed crankcase system
to prevent discharging crankcase emissions into the
atmosphere. Blow-by gas is returned to the combustion
chamber through the air cleaner and the throttle body.
Evaporative Emission Control System
California motorcycles are equipped with an evaporative
emission control system which consists of a charcoal
canister and associated piping. This system prevents the
escape of fuel vapors from the throttle body and fuel tank.
Tampering warning
Tampering with Noise Control System Prohibited. Federal
Law prohibits the following acts or causing thereof:
(1) the removal or rendering inoperative by any person, other
than for purposes of maintenance, repair, or replacement, of
any device or element of design incorporated into any new
vehicle for the purpose of noise control prior to its sale or
delivery to the ultimate purchaser or while it is in use; or
110
Problems that may affect motorcycle emissions
If you are aware of any of the following symptoms, have the
vehicle inspected and repaired by your local Ducati dealer.
Symptoms:
Hard starting or stalling after starting.
Rough idle.
Misfiring or backfiring during acceleration.
After-burning (backfiring).
Poor performance (driveability) and poor economy.
The points given below are applicable for every day
motorcycle use and shoud be carefully observed for safe
and effective vehicle operation.
A motorcycle does not provide the impact protection of
an automobile, so defensive riding in addition to wearing
protective apparel is extremely important.
Do not let protective apparel give you a false sense of security.
Before changing lanes, look over your shoulder to make sure
the way is clear. Do not rely solely on the rear view mirror;
you may misjudge a vehicle’s distance and speed, or you
may not see it at all.
When going up steep slopes, shift to a lower gear so that
there is plenty of power to spare rather than overloading the
engine.
When applying the brakes, use both the front and rear
brakes. Applying only one brake for sudden braking may
cause the motorcycle to skid and lose control.
When going down long slopes, control vehicle speed by
closing the throttle. Use the front and rear brakes for auxiliary
braking.
Riding at the proper rate of speed and avoiding unnecessarily
fast acceleration are important not only for safety and low
fuel consumption but also for long vehicle life and quieter
operation.
When riding in wet conditions or on loose roadway surfaces,
the ability to maneuver will be reduced. All of your actions
should be smooth under these conditions. Sudden
acceleration, braking or turning may cause loss of control.
When the roadway is wet, rely more on the throttle to control
vehicle speed and less on the front and rear brakes.
The throttle should also be used judiciously to avoid skidding
the rear wheel from too rapid acceleration or deceleration.
On rough roads, exercise caution, slow down, and grip the
fuel tank with your knees for better stability.
When quick acceleration is necessary as in passing, shift to
a lower gear to obtain the necessary power.
Do not down shift at too high an r.p.m. to avoid damage to
the engine from overreving.
Avoiding unnecessary weaving is important to the safety of
both the rider and other motorists.
Do not exceed the legal speed limit or drive too fast for
existing conditions. High speed increases the influence of
any condition affecting stability and the loss of control.
Operate motorcycle only at moderate speed and out of traffic
until you have become thoroughly familiar with its operation
and handling characteristics under all conditions. This is a
very high performance motorcycle, designed and intended
for use by experienced careful riders only!
A new motorcycle must be operated according to a special
break-in procedure (see Running in recommendations).
Warning
Before starting engine, check for proper operation of
brake, clutch, shifter, throttle controls, correct fuel and oil
supply.
Gasoline is extremely flammable and is explosive under
certain conditions. Refuell in a well ventilated area with the
engine stopped. Do not smoke or allow open flames or
sparks when refuelling or servicing the fuel system.
111
E
USA
Riding safety
USA
E
Always close the fuel petcock when the engine is not
running to prevent flooding of the throttle body. Do not
overfill fuel tank (see instructions page 55).
Motorcycle exhaust contains poisonous carbon monoxide
gas. Do not inhale exhaust gases and never run the engine
in a closed garage or confined area.
Use only Ducati approved parts and accessories.
This motorcycle was not intended to be equipped with a
sidecar or to be used to tow any trailer or other vehicle. Ducati
does not manufacture sidecars or trailers and cannot predict
the effects of such accessories on handling or stability, but can
only warn that the effects will be adverse and any damage to
motorcycle components caused by the use of such
accessories will not be remedied under warranty.
Vehicle identification number (VIN)
Every Ducati motorcycle is identified by two identification
numbers (see page 9). fig. A specifically shows the frame
identification numbers.
Warning
Do not ride the motorcycle with helmets attached to
the hook; the helmets could cause an accident by distracting
the operator or interfering with normal vehicle operation.
Protective apparel

{
Always wear a helmet. Most motorcycle accident fatalities
are due to head injuries.
For safety eye protection, gloves, and high top, sturdy boots
should also be worn.
The exhaust system becomes very hot during operation,
never touch the exhaust system. Wear clothing that fully
covers your legs. Do not wear loose clothing which could
catch on the control levers, footrests, wheels, or chain.
Any amount of alcohol will significantly interfere with your
ability to safely operate your motorcycle. Don’t drink and ride.
