Checking the chain tension

E
Important
Have the chain tensioned at a Ducati Dealer or
Authorized Service Centre.
Chain tensioning (on sidestand): hold a rule half way along the
bottom run of the chain, push down on the chain and adjust
the tension until the distance between the aluminium of the
swingarm and the centre of the chain pin is 33 to 35 mm.
Warning
Correct tightening of the swingarm bolts (1) is
essential to rider and passenger safety.
Important
An incorrectly tensioned chain will cause the rapid
wear of transmission parts.
