Lubricating cables and linkages
The condition of the outer sheath of the throttle cables
should be checked at regular intervals. There should be no
signs of pinching or cracking on the outer plastic sheath.
Operate the control to check that the inner cable slides
smoothly: 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, periodically lubricate the ends
of each control cable with SHELL Advance Grease or Retinax
It is advised to open the housing, unscrewing the two
fastening screws (1) and then grease the cable end and the
Close the twistgrip housing carefully, inserting the
cable in the race.
Refit the housing and tighten the screws (1) to 1.8 Nm.
To ensure smooth operation of the side stand pivot, remove
dirt and apply SHELL Alvania R3 grease to all friction points.
