ABS Control Unit to the Rear Brake Caliper Hose Installation

 

1. Take the new brake hose (A) connecting the ABS control unit to the rear brake caliper.

 

NOTE

The new brake hose can be recognized by the rigid section that runs along the vertical head, which is longer than the previous one.

 

2. Install the new brake hose (A) connecting the ABS control unit to the rear brake caliper, as shown below:

  • Route the ABS control unit fitting below the wiring support
  • Position brake hose (A) inside cable guide (63)
  • Position brake hose (A) inside cable guide (69), in the position shown in the figure

4. Fasten the rear brake caliper fitting, aiming it as shown in the figure, using 2 new copper washers (C) and tighten the special screw (67) to 25 Nm ± 5% with certification.

 

NOTE

Due to the presence of the elongated rigid section, the brake hoses are not easy to handle, unlike the old ones, so tightening the fittings on the ABS control unit requires greater care to avoid damaging the threads on the ABS control unit.

 

Rear Brake Master Cylinder to ABS Control Unit Hose Installation

1. Take the new brake hose (D) connecting the ABS control unit to the rear brake master cylinder.

 

NOTE

The new brake hose can be recognized by the rigid section that runs along the vertical head, which is longer than the previous one.

 

2. Install the new brake hose (D) connecting the ABS control unit to the rear brake master cylinder, as shown below:

  • Route the ABS control unit fitting below the wiring support.
  • Position brake hose (D) inside cable guide (69), in the position shown in the figure.

8. Fasten the rear brake master cylinder fitting as shown in the figure using 2 new copper washers (F) and tighten the special screw (63) to 25 Nm ± 5% with certification.

 

NOTE

Due to the presence of the elongated rigid section, the brake hoses are not easy to handle, unlike the old ones, so tightening the fittings on the ABS control unit requires greater care to avoid damaging the threads on the ABS control unit.

 

WARNING

Make sure that brake hose (A) and brake hose (D) fittings are aimed on the ABS control unit as shown in the figure and check also that there are no interferences.

 

WARNING

Make sure that brake hose (A) and brake hose (D) fittings are respectively aimed on the brake caliper and brake master cylinder as shown in the figure.

WARNING

Before measuring the heights (A) and (B) for the brake pedal travel check, always check that the free play travel of the rear brake lever is correct (between 2 mm to 5 mm)

Remember that the idle stroke refers to the stroke performed by the brake cylinder control rod before operating the pump. If the idle stroke is outside the specified values, it must be adjusted again using the adjustment screw on the control rod

 

26. Measure height (A1) between rear brake lever lower end and load-bearing surface; brake lever must be in rest position (upper limit stop)

27. Slowly position the 8 kg weight onto rear brake lever; then measure height (B1) between rear brake lever lower end and load-bearing surface

Rear brake lever stroke 1 = (A1) – (B1)

 

29. Road test the vehicle on the road at a speed of about 30 mph (50 Km/h) and, by operating only the rear brake, brake until the ABS is engaged at least 10 times

30. Measure again the rear brake lever stroke as referred to in steps 26 and 27

 

WARNING

The measurement of the rear brake lever stroke required must be taken with the same temperature conditions as the previous measurement. Therefore, if the measurement was taken with cold engine it will be necessary to wait for 2 hours before proceeding.

 

31. Note the difference between the measured heights (A2) and (B2).

 

Rear brake lever stroke 2 = (A2) – (B2)

 

32. Compare the 2 stroke values of the rear brake lever.

  • If a stroke increase of the rear brake lever is detected, repeat the complete bleed procedure.
  • Once the new bleeding procedure is completed, check that the stroke of the rear brake lever has not increased.

 

33. Remove the motorcycle from the rear paddock stand

34. Perform a soft cleaning of the motorcycle before delivering it to the Customer

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

This notice applies to your vehicle: VIN XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

NHTSA Recall No. 21V-315

 

June 30, 2021

Customer Name
Customer Address
City, St, Zip Code

 

Subject: 

Ducati Motorcycle: Monster 821 MY 2018-2020 all versions (USA-CAN only)

NHTSA Campaign I.D. Number: 21V-315

Dealer Bulletin: SRV-RCL-21-007

 

Dear Ducati Owner,

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Ducati Motor Holding S.P.A. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain Monster 821 MY 2018-2020 all versions (USA and CAN only). Our records indicate that you are the owner of a Ducati motorcycle affected by this safety recall campaign. Please take the time to read this letter and help us take the appropriate steps to ensure that your vehicle is operating properly.

 

What is wrong?

It has been determined that due to brake system architecture, there is a potential for greater susceptibility for air permeation through the rear brake hoses into the rear brake system, reducing rear brake effectiveness. If this issue develops during normal use, it develops gradually, providing sufficient warning to the operator that rear braking performance may be degrading. If this issue develops after long periods of time without using the motorcycle, the rider during the pre-ride check (as recommended in the Owner’s manual) would be warned by an increase of the rear brake pedal stroke. If this condition remains undetected, a rider who relies on rear braking may experience extended stopping distances, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

The front and rear brake system for this motorcycle are hydraulically independent; therefore, performance of the front brake, which provides full stopping ability, is NOT affected by the rear brake system.

 

What will Ducati do?

We are informing you of this Non-Compliance Recall on your Ducati motorcycle although we are not able to perform the remedy currently. We will notify you with a follow-up letter as soon as the part is available. When the part is available (estimate date is early Aug 2021), the rear brake lines will be replaced for free and should take about 4 hours. Service time will vary depending on dealer scheduling.

Please contact your local Ducati Service center to schedule an appointment for the repair. You may continue to operate your motorcycle to reach your Ducati authorized dealer. If your rear brake system is inoperable, or if you feel uncomfortable riding the motorcycle, please discontinue operating the vehicle, then contact our roadside assistance provider at 800-2341353 to facilitate a tow service to your nearest Ducati dealer.

To locate your nearest authorized Ducati dealer, please go to www.ducati.com, and select the “dealer locator” or you may call toll free from the U.S. 1-888-391-5446.

Federal regulations require that any lessor receiving this recall notice must forward a copy of this notice to the lessee within ten days.

 

Service Problem Help:

If you believe that your dealer has failed or is unable to remedy the defect without charge, or within a reasonable period of time, please contact Ducati North America Customer Care at  1 (888) 391-5446.

Expenses from repair facilities outside of the authorized Ducati dealer network will be considered; however, the procedure must meet Ducati North America’s standards.

 

Your authorized Ducati retailer will request a copy of your owner notification letter, as well as, a copy of your previously paid invoice. They will inspect the vehicle, if still in your possession, prior to submitting a claim on your behalf to Ducati North America, Inc. for reimbursement. Only a repair involving this safety recall campaign is reimbursable. Ducati North America, Inc will not reimburse consequential expenses such as towing, rental, and accommodations.

 

We recommend that your authorized Ducati dealer be your primary contact on this issue. We anticipate that your authorized Ducati dealer will be able to answer any questions that you may have regarding your qualifications for reimbursement of a previous repair; additionally, our Customer Relations Dept. may be contacted at 888-391-5446 for any special assistance required.

 

What if you no longer own the vehicle? 

If you no longer own the vehicle, please e-mail your change of ownership information to ContactUs@ducati.com or contact Ducati North America Customer Care at 1 (888) 391-5446.

 

We regret any inconvenience to you from this action; however, your safety and satisfaction are important to us.

 

Sincerely,

 

Richard Kenton

Technical Director – Ducati North America
