Check engine oil level
Engine oil level can be checked through the sight
glass (1) located on the left side of the engine block.
Oil level should be between the marks on the sight
glass. If the level is low, top up with engine oil.
Ducati recommends you use Shell Advance 4T Ultra
15W-50 oil (JASO: MA2 and API: SN).
Remove the oil filler cap (2) located on the right side
of the vehicle and top up until the oil reaches the
required level. Refit the filler plug (2).
Engine oil and oil filters must be changed by a
Ducati Dealer or authorised Service Centre at the
intervals specified in the scheduled maintenance
chart reported in the Warranty Card.
To check the oil level correctly, carefully follow the
1) The level check must be carried out with engine off
for at least 2 hours, to allow time for the oil flowed in
the cylinder heads to reach the sump.
2) Position the bike with both wheels on a flat ground
and in straight position.
3) Then, check the engine oil through the sight glass.
4) If the oil level is below the middle line between the
MIN and MAX marks, add oil until reaching the
maximum level indication.
Never exceed the MAX mark.
