Offers four functions. Gives total distance covered. b) Trip meter (km or miles). Gives distance covered since last resetting.
Digital display (fig. 6) 8.1) Fuel level indicator The fuel level in the tank is indicated by full bars. When there is only 1 full bar left on, it will start blinking while the fuel warning light (4, fig. 5) will come on. 8.2) Coolant temperature indicator Shows engine coolant temperature.
Keys (fig. 7) Your Ducati was delivered with two universal keys for ignition, steering lock, tank filler plug and seat catch. Note The keys are supplied together with a plate (1) bearing key identification nuber. Note Separate the two keys and keep the identification plate in a safe place.

Note This device is not fitted on the Australia and Japan versions.
Clutch lever (fig. 10) Lever (1) disengages the clutch. When you pull in the lever, you will disengage the engine from the gearbox and therefore from the driving wheel. Using the clutch properly is essential to smooth riding, especially when moving off.
Cold start lever (fig. 11) Use this device to start the engine from cold. It will increase the engine idling speed after starting. Lever positions: A) (vertical) = closed B) = fully open. The lever can be opened and closed gradually to adjust speed until engine is fully warm (see page 36).
Right switch (fig. 12) Front brake lever (fig. 12) 1) Switch for ENGINE STOP, two positions: Pull in the lever (4) towards the twistgrip to operate the position (RUN) = run. front brake. The system is hydraulically operated and you position (OFF) = stop.
Rear brake pedal (fig. 13) Push down on the pedal (1) to apply the rear brake. The system is hydraulically operated. fig. 13 Gear change pedal (fig. 14) The gear change pedal is at rest when in the central position N, is moved up and down to change gears and then returns to the central position.
Setting the gear change and rear brake pedals The gear change and rear brake pedals can be adjusted to suit the preferred riding position of each rider. To set the gear change pedal, lock linkage (1) and loosen the check nuts (2) and (3). Note Nut (2) has a left-hand thread.

Centre stand Always use the centre stand (1, fig. 24) to support the motorcycle steadily when parked. It is designed to support the motorcycle even when carrying the maximum load allowed. Warning Before putting the motorcycle on the centre stand, make sure the bearing surface is hard and flat.
Rear view mirrors (fig. 26) The rear view mirrors of your motorcycle are made up of two parts held together by a special inner spring. This spring counters mirror rotation so the mirror will not smash the headlamp fairing if hit accidentally. The spring then moves the mirror back to its original position.
Front fork adjusters The front fork has rebound and compression damping adjusters. This adjustment is done using the outer adjusters: 1) (fig. 27) to adjust rebound damping; 2) (fig. 27) to adjust inner springs preload; 3) (fig. 28) to adjust compression damping. Turn the adjuster (1) on fork leg top with a flat screwdriver to adjust rebound damping.
STANDARD factory setting is as follows: compression: 12 clicks; rebound: 11 clicks. The setting range is 14 clicks (both for rebound and compression). The 14th click gives the softest damping. To change the preload of the spring inside each fork leg turn the hex.
Shock absorber adjusters The shock absorber has outer adjusters that enable you to adjust your motorcycle to the load. The adjuster (1, fig. 29) located on the rear right hand side near the control unit controls rebound damping. The adjuster (2, fig. 30) on the shock absorber expansion reservoir controls compression damping.
Warning Use a specific pin wrench only to turn the preload adjusting ring nut. Be careful when turning the nut with the wrench, as the pin may slip out of the nut recess and you may hurt your hand hitting motorcycle parts. Important The shock absorber is filled with gas under pressure and may cause severe damage if taken apart by...
