Useful suggestions
Ducati Meccanica suggests, in order to prevent troubles and
in
order to have
an
excellent final result, to generally comply with the following instructions:
-
in
case of repair, weigh the impressions of the Customer, who complains about the
improper operation of the motorcycle, and formulate proper clearing questions about
the symptoms of the trouble.
- detect clearly the cause of the trouble. This manual gives the theoretical bases, which
however must be integrated by the personal experience and by the affendance to
training courses periodically organized by
DUCATI.
- rationally plan the repair work, in order to prevent dead time
as
for instance
procurement of spare parts, tool preparation, etc.
- reach the component to be repaired and perform only the required operations.
In this connection, it will be useful to consult the disassembly sequence shown in this
manual.

reassembling.

spare ports and the lubricants of the recommended brands.
