Any one have any leads on where to get a proper workshop manual (not an owners manual).

Do they actually sell them? - I have always had a Manufacturers workdshop manual for my previous bikes and they were never cheap @100GBP so a ducati Diavel one will be 250GBP at least ! :poke

When looking on Omaha OEM parts, I get this:

Item Name:
MAN-OFF DRAFT DIAVEL ABS/ABS CARBON MY11

Item Number:
91471121X

Qty: Price: 57.99

I also found this but I guess it's the wrong item:

Item Name:
DDS MANUAL

Item Number:
979000232

Qty: Price: 17.99

(All prices are US $)

Is the first one the right to order?

You don't need it to achieve that polished mirror-like finish on those exhaust link pipes do you Gary? Lol!

No your quite right Rob, I just muddled thorugh! But it would have been nice to have known the torque setting for the little 10mm nuts, rather than 'just nip 'em up tight' from the mechanic!!

I was always told by a car mechanic friend of mine, 'FT' This can mean 'Fairly Tight' or 'F*cking Tight'! LOL

PS Rob, spent two hours cleaning it yesterday despite being bolloxed, Including rear shock!! :d

Yep, I got one from my dealer, $87.00au go figure they rip us in the land downunder. Its a DVD and fantastic, well worth any money spent, with excellent pictures and hints and tricks to remove and find things without breaking anythng.

I highly recommend buying a copy, but, be aware, the dealers get snakey and may not like the idea you can do some of your own work and not run to them for every and anything.

cheers

I'm hoping someone has a PDF copy available for purchase eventually. Paper is nice, but it's even nicer being able to open a PDF on a phone or laptop when traveling.

When I get mine I'll see if I can convert it, as I'd like to be able to have it as a PDF on phone too. We have some fairly good programs at work that can interpret docs and convert to PDF. If you can though, I guess it will be huge!

The workshop manual is PDF, you can save it from DVD to where-every you like, I save it to hard drive so I don't need DVD all the time.

Best money you'll ever spend, just ask your dealer for a workshop manual, depending on where you are will depend on the price, here in Australia we pay ($89.00) nearly twice the price of the US and our dollar is worth more, go figure, bloody stinks in my opinion ;-O

Just ordered the workshop manual from my local dealer along with the 'C' spanner for the rear wheel chain adjuster. Glad I was sat down when he told me the price of the spanner - £65.00!! :) Apparently it is not a 'normal' C spanner in that it has 3 lugs on it to mate with the slots, presumably to avoid slipping off the nut.

I suppose a standard type would do the jpb but (a) Its a large item and they don't appear to be easily available from engineering suppliers at that size and (b) I'd be devasted if I slipped and scratched my gorgeous beauty for the want of a few quid, so needs must.

Better news on the manual though - £34.17!!

I never owned a shop manual.

For those with this.. Does the manual detail (screw-by-screw) how to do certain jobs (ie change the air filter, remove the exhaust)?

I bought a 'C' spanner off the 'place that must not be named ' for £15.99, 2-piece stainless and good quality too. Used it once and no problem, in fact my Ducati dealer stocks it as an option to the original!
