Lubricating cables and joints

Check the outer sheath of the throttle control and cold start
lever 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
To avoid this kind of problem with the throttle cable, unscrew
the two retaining screws (1, fig. 144) to open the case and
then the grease cable ends and pulley (2, fig. 145) 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.
