    Hi all, After an year of trouble-free ownership, I decided it's time to upgrade my Gen 1 Diavel Carbon. For the rear shocks, I chose a not-so-common route: rebuilding the stock Sachs unit into a Ohlins-wannabe. I bought the kit from Omnia Racing, comes with weight-specific Ohlins springs and all...

    Talk to me about improving how the Xdiavel copes with bumpy roads and potholes. British roads have an ever worsening problem with holes in the road, which can be hard to spot at dusk or nighttime. The Xdiavel seems to cope badly, but what can I do to improve matters? Would a change of...

    I'm getting a small leak of fork oil coming out of the compression screw on the LH fork leg. Anyone else have this issue? The service manual doesnt give much detail into the compression valve on the top cap of the fork but I wanted to see how rebuildable they are. From what I can tell other...
  5. XDiavel Owners Check In Area
    Hello tribe - picked up a 2016 XDiavel with only 1100 miles on it in June from ProItalia in Glendale (S. CA) Got past the feet forward position quickly but it does still seem a little odd. Have what might be a common challenge with my rear brakes - but will post on that in another area. Will...

    Hello All, I've got a query / niggle regarding the rear shock rod on my X Diavel and as I'm not technically / mechanically minded I thought I would look to the XD community for the answer.... Q) What is the function of this rod design? I ask this because mine seems permanently stuck over to...

    Let's use this space to post our personal suspension settings. Please use the terms clockwise (cw) and counter-clockwise (ccw) when discussing adjustments and from full cw or ccw not standard setup so as to prevent confusion. The rear spring preload is by distance from the base to the yellow...

    So, went to dial in the suspension on my recently purchased 2011 carbon and, much to my dismay, the rebound damping screw on the rear shock does not click! All of the adjustments in the manual are based off of clicks. I thought maybe I could see how many clicks per turn there are by screwing it...

    Some of you know my history with suspension issues (and transmission issues). Briefly for those who don't, I went through a ridiculous amount of settings before Ducati informed me that at 110 pounds I was "too far outside of the targeted rider weight", and that is was "too dangerous to be on...

    What's the best pricing you all are seeing out there for the full front & rear Ohlins combo? A local Ohlins rep has quoted me $3700 USD for both, calling it a "special" deal from them, which sounds like it may be limited (this is not through the dealer, who is also an Ohlins distributor). This...

    has anyone tried the Matris fork cartridge kit? it looks to me like a step above the Andreani kit, but obviously not Öhlins. i'm not really sure the latter would be so much better, considering this seems to replace all you need. any thoughts? the Matris is about $1500, the Andreani is $850 and...

    I've owned my bike now for just over a year(2013) and have roughly 4k miles on her. For the past couple months I notice the steering is fighting me when turning at any speed. I thought it was just me but I don't notice it on my much heavier bike, a Victory Hammer S, also with a large tire on the...

    I had already followed the hints here on how to modify the suspension settings. Looking for comfort in all round situations rather than track day thrills I had softened things up already... Surprisingly softening the front compression damping settings by only another 1/8 of turn anticlockwise...

    I only raise this here because it may come Daivel's way 'ere long. As you'll probably have heard this is the recently announced new [adaptive] suspension system being introduced in the 2013 Multistrada line up (S and Pikes Peak models only). According to my dealer, these are Sachs units (at...
