Rotating cams during desmo valve adjustment

Hi all, It's time for my 2nd ever valve adjustment on my '78 900SD. It's been a great bike that hasn't given much trouble since I sorted it out. I was wondering about something that caused me some trouble the 1st time around. It was hard to remove the closing shims and wire collets from the valves b...

Re: Bevel or pantah twin for Ahrma racing?

The alazzurra seems like a good option. That engine might even have some parts in common with my 800SS, which is always convenient when racing two bikes. Those TT2 replicas look pretty nice! I saw some authentic ones at the Barber vintage festival a few years ago. I'm surprised to hear the 750 sprin...

Bevel or pantah twin for Ahrma racing?

Hi guys Hope this isn't a repost. I got into ahrma road racing a couple years ago, first with an aprilia rs250 and now with '05 Ducati 800SS. Since it's mostly a vintage racing club I'm getting the itch to put together an older Ducati twin to go along with my newer one if I can afford it. The trick ...

Re: Bevel-specific tools/spares to carry on a long trip

Well I made it back in one piece and the Darmah is still running great! Covered 5700 miles in 20 days. All the roads in California and Colorado were great and I enjoyed the runs across the desert too. The Darmah ran great the whole time, even at 14k ft on top of Pikes Peak. There were a few little p...

Re: Bevel-specific tools/spares to carry on a long trip

Hi guys, I'm taking off for the pacific coast on the 12th. Gave myself 3 weeks to get there and back. I've gone thru my Darmah from one end to the other and everything is working fine now. It will probably stay that way if I can keep from tinkering with it til then! I replaced most of the wear items...

Re: Bevel-specific tools/spares to carry on a long trip

Thanks for the tips guys. Good call on the chain adjuster. That's an easy one to miss since it's bike specific rather than the bolts or cams on other bikes. I'm relieved nobody said it was crazy to ride a Darmah that far. I figure it's a sport touring bike and that's what it was made for. But then t...

Re: Bevel-specific tools/spares to carry on a long trip

Thanks Dean, you covered everything I was wondering about. I think I can remove the wheels and do an oil change with only a couple wrenches. The center stand will come in handy and it's convenient that the same size tube can work in each tire. I'm trying out Shell Rotella oil because it's easy to fi...

Bevel-specific tools/spares to carry on a long trip

Hi all, I bought my 1st vintage Duc earlier this year ('78 Darmah 900SD w/PHM40's) and I'm planning/hoping to ride it on a coast to coast trip next year from GA to CA and back. I finally have a bike that's comfy enough to do it compared to my newer sportbikes. I rode my 848 to the Indy motogp with a...

Re: WTB: Darmah 900

Hi guys I found a 78 Darmah on Craigslist out west and had it shipped here to Atlanta. Thanks to Steve @ Bevel Heaven for making the arrangements. The bike is complete and stock except for the conti mufflers and PHM40 carbs. Some typical vintage bike probs so far like a little rust in the tank and s...

WTB: Darmah 900

Hi all, I'm new to this forum and I'm looking to buy a bevel drive ducati to fill the gap between my 848 and bultaco metralla. Of course I like the SS and MHR but I think the Darmah is the best model in my price range ($7k - 10k). I'm hoping to find a mostly stock bike I can ride and enjoy, not nece...

New Guy from Atlanta

Hi guys,
I saw (and heard) some bevels at the Barber vintage fest a couple years ago and I've been lusting for one ever since. Got a couple newer belt drive ducs and some Bultacos for ahrma mx. Don't own a bevel yet but i'm trying to find one!
Thanks,
Craig
