To cancel the indicator, press the lever once it has returned to the central position.

Page 53: Clutch Lever

Clutch lever The lever (1) disengages the clutch. The span adjuster (2) serves to alter the distance of the lever from the handlebar. Lever distance is adjusted by 10 clicks of the knob (2).

Turn the knob clockwise to move the lever away from twistgrip, or anti-clockwise to move it closer.

Right-hand handlebar switch (fig. 36) 1) Two-position ENGINE STOP switch: position (RUN) = run; position (OFF) = stop engine. Warning This switch is mainly intended for use in emergencies when you need to stop the engine quickly.

After stopping the engine, return the switch to the position to start the engine.

Page 55: Front Brake Lever

Front brake lever (fig. 37) Pull the lever (1) towards the twistgrip to operate the front brake. The system is hydraulically assisted and you only need to pull the lever gently.

The brake lever (1) has a knob (2) for adjusting the distance between lever and twistgrip on the handlebar.

Page 56: Rear Brake Pedal, Gearchange Pedal

Rear brake pedal (fig. 38) Push down on the pedal (1) with your foot to operate the rear brake. The system is controlled hydraulically. fig. 38 Gearchange pedal (fig.

Page 57

Adjusting the position of the gearchange and rear brake pedals (fig. 40 and fig. 41) The position of the gearchange and rear brake pedals in relation to the footrests can be adjusted to suit the requirements of the rider.

To adjust the position, proceed as follows: restrain the tie-rod (1) and slacken the locknuts (2) and (3).

Page 58

To adjust the position of the rear brake pedal, proceed as follows: Loosen the locknut (4). Turn the pedal travel adjustment bolt (5) until the pedal is in the desired position. Tighten the locknut (4) to a torque of 2.3 Nm.

Operate the pedal by hand to check that there is 1.5 to 2 mm of freeplay before the brake bites.

Page 60: Fuel Tank Filler Cap

Fuel tank filler cap (fig. 43) Opening Raise the cover (1) and insert the key into the lock. Give the key a 1/4 turn clockwise to unlock. Lift the cap.

Closing Close the cap with the key inserted and push it into its seat. Turn the key anticlockwise to the initial position and remove it.

Page 61: Sidestand

Sidestand Notes (fig. 44) It is advisable to check periodically that the stand mechanism (consisting of two springs, one inside the other) Important and safety sensor (2) are working properly. Before lowering the sidestand, check that the ground is sufficiently even and firm.

Notes Do not park on soft ground, gravel or on asphalt softened The engine can be started with the sidestand down.

Page 62: Steering Damper

Steering damper (fig. 45) The steering damper is located in front of the tank and secured to the frame and the top yoke. The damper helps improve steering precision and stability, and thus also improves ride quality in all riding conditions.

Turn the knob (1) clockwise to obtain a stiffer damping action or anticlockwise to soften it.

Page 63: Front Fork Adjusters

Front fork adjusters The front fork can be adjusted for rebound, compression and spring preload. The settings are adjusted by way of external adjuster screws: 1) to adjust rebound damping (fig. 46); 2) to adjust inner spring preload (fig.

46); 3) to adjust compression damping (fig.

Page 64

The STANDARD factory settings are as follows: compression: 8 clicks; rebound: 10 clicks. Spring preload: with the adjuster FULLY SCREWED OUT, screw in (clockwise) 8 turns; this corresponds to a spring preload of 8 mm. To change the spring preload for each fork leg, turn the adjuster (2, fig.

Page 65: Rear Shock Absorber Adjusters

Rear shock absorber adjusters (fig. 48) The shock absorber has external adjusters that enable you to adjust the suspension to suit the load on the motorcycle. The two adjusters on the shock absorber reservoir serve to adjust the compression damping (1 #x2013; gold) and the rebound damping (2 – black).

Page 66

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.

Page 67: Adjusting The Rear Ride Height

Adjusting the rear ride height (fig. 49, fig. 50 and fig. 51) The standard ride height setting is the result of rigorous testing carried out in a wide variety of conditions by our technical staff.

Modifying the ride height is a very critical operation, and can be dangerous if carried out by untrained persons.

Page 68

The maximum distance that the UNIBALL end fitting (A) can be unscrewed from the tie-rod body is 5 threads, or 7.5 mm (B). fig. 51.

Page 69: Riding The Motorcycle, Running-in Precautions

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.

Page 70

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.

Page 96: Changing The High And Low Beam Bulbs

Changing the high and low beam bulbs Before replacing a burnt-out bulb, make sure that the new one matches the voltage and wattage specifications in theparagraph #x201C;Electrical System#x201D; on page 118. Always check that the new bulb works before refitting removed parts. Figure 79 shows the position of the low beam (LO), high beam (HI) and side light (1) bulbs.

Page 97

Notes It is not necessary to disconnect the main wiring loom cable in order to replace the headlight bulbs. Notes Be careful to hold the new bulb at the base only. Never touch the transparent body with your fingers or it will blacken resulting in reduced bulb brilliancy.

Page 98: Changing The Sidelight Bulb

Changing the sidelight bulb To access the sidelights (1), reach your hand inside the headlight support and take the bulb-holders out of their seats. Turn the bulb retaining ring (1) anti-clockwise and remove the burnt-out bulb. Renew the burnt-out bulb.

On refitting, turn the bulb (1) clockwise to secure it.
