Storing the bike away

If the motorcycle is to be left unridden over long periods,
it is advisable to carry out the following operations before
storing it away:
clean the motorcycle;
drain all fuel from tank;
pour a few drops of engine oil into the cylinders through
the spark plug seats, then crank the engine by hand a
few times so a protective film of oil will spread on
cylinder inner walls;
place the motorcycle on a service stand;
disconnect and remove the battery. Battery should be
checked and charged whenever the motorcycle has been
left unridden for over a month;
protect the motorcycle with a suitable canvas available
from Ducati Performance. This will protect paintwork and
let condensate breathe out.

Switzerland, etc. have compulsory emission and noise
standards that include mandatory inspections at regular
It is the Owner's responsibility to have any parts not in
compliance with the standards in force in his/her country
replaced with spare parts complying with local law.
