1 Diavel, 1,000 pieces

It's time to get started on the full service on my 2015 Diavel Carbon. Been putting it off for a while but, now that I have the SP back up and running, I decided to clean up the garage and tear in to the Diavel. I'm not in a big rush - just gonna take my time and do what I can when I get time.....



At least I found out where they hid all of the gizmos and electronic wizardry on my "naked" bike - it's all stuck to the airbox

Your garage is cleaner than my kitchen!

The Diavel is on my short list. Nice bike you got there.

Thanks! It smells like Pinesol and gasoline after removing the fuel tank

The Diavel is a great bike - total riot to ride and it's proven to be quite a reliable machine as well.

Nice bike. But geez there's alot of parts, covers, screws to get it stripped down for a service, you still have to pull the exhaust to get to the timing belt covers.
Not sure if its in the service you're doing but I'd replace the sparkplugs while I'm in there, getting to the rear plug requires the same strip down.

After working on the diavel I'm so much appreciating working on my old 900ss/cr. Why can't they make newer bikes easier to work on?

Totally agree - it’s freakin’ nuts how much stuff you have to remove just to get to the belts. I have new plugs on the way. I’m planning on doing the belts, valves, plugs, coolant, and rear hub while I’m at it....just gonna take my sweet time 🙂

Damn, I think it's probably worth paying the $2,000 to have the belts & valves done lol.

You have to disassemble pretty much the entire motorcycle just to reach the freakin' hose clamp on the horizontal cylinder throttle body....and removing the exhaust is quite a little project in it's own right. Good thing I have another scooter to play with cuz at this pace it'll take me all summer





New seat arrived - nice quality piece

FYI - you don't need a specific "Ducati" tool to remove the spark plug boots, as I've heard multiple times. An ordinary $12 5/8" boot puller works just fine

You have to grab the top of the boot with your fingers and pull it up just enough to get the wrench around it but, once you get it around the boot, put constant pressure on it and pull slowly - otherwise you'll rip the thing in half. They are stuck pretty good in there

Should you damage it, a new one is $48 + shipping (Vertical Head Part #67110621B/Horizontal Head Part #67110641B)

Looks like you've got a plan, but I gotta tell ya just looking at what you have undertaken is making my ulcers flair up!! Perhaps I should simply start saving my pennies now for any future services? Nice pictures by the way.
