Lubricating cables and joints

Check the outer sheath of the throttle control cables for
damage at regular intervals. The outer plastic cover should
not be flattened or cracked. Operate the controls to make
sure the inner cables slide smoothly inside the outer sheath:
if you feel any friction or catching, have the cable replaced by
a Ducati Dealer or Authorised Service Centre.
To avoid this kind of problem with the throttle cable, unscrew
the two retaining screws (1, fig. 137) to open the case and
then the grease cable ends and pulley (2, fig. 138) with
SHELL Advance Grease or Retinax LX2 grease.
Close the twistgrip housing carefully, inserting the
cable in the pulley.
Refit the housing and tighten the screws (1) to 10 Nm.
To ensure smooth operation of the side stand pivot, remove
dirt and apply SHELL Alvania R3 grease to all friction points.
