Hide thumbs


Storing the motorcycle

If the motorcycle is to be left unused for a long period, it is
advisable to carry out the following operations first:
clean the motorcycle;
drain the fuel from fuel tank;
pour a few drops of engine oil into the cylinders through
the spark plug bores, then turn the engine over by hand a
few times to form a protective film of oil on the inner walls
of the cylinder;
place the motorcycle on the paddock stand;
disconnect and remove the battery.
If the motorcycle has been left unused for more than a month,
the battery should be checked and re-charged if necessary.
Protect the motorcycle with a specific motorcycle cover
that will not damage the paintwork or retain moisture.
This type of motorcycle cover is available from Ducati

Important notes

The legislation in some countries (France, Germany,
Great Britain, Switzerland, etc.) sets certain noise and
pollution standards.
Periodically carry out the required checks and renew parts as
necessary, using Ducati original spare parts, in compliance
with the regulations in the country concerned.
