I own a 2015 Ducati Diavel. I has the Ohlins rear shock

Customer Question

I own a 2015 Ducati Diavel. I has the Ohlins rear shock installed. The bike is still jarring on small bumps. What are your recommended settings for the shock and stock forks?

I'm assuming that this model you have has seperate bump and rebound adjustment?

in which case try coming back 1 or 2 clicks on the rebound setting to begin with and also double check the tyre pressures as these must be right before trying any shock tuning

often a slight reduction in tyre pressure by 1 or 2 psi can have a surprising benefit
