Re: Hello form Buckinghamshire in the UK

Welcome Greg: It's great to see some activity here; there are a lot of good technical folks who will join in. I suggest you start posting down below in the specific sections, listing what you need parts/help wise. I recently upgraded my 81 MHR with all new electronic ignition; there's a fairly detai...

Re: WTB/WTT 860 GT High Back Seat Pan

I'm here almost daily Steve! FB does appear to have taken over from many of the popular forums but not everyone is on FB so your site is still very relevant and I appreciate you keeping it up. I've "met" some very good "friends" here.

Re: WTB/WTT 860 GT High Back Seat Pan

Hi Jeffrey: There's quite a bit of 860 GT activity on some of the Ducati Facebook forums. I was a never-FB guy until a friend persuaded me to take a peek about a year ago. I exclusively joined motorcycle groups. There are at least three older Ducati spares groups and I'm pretty sure there's a 750/86...

Re: Clutch Grabs Violently on Fresh Engine

Hi Herb: My go-to site for this kind of information is Ducati Classics: https://www.ducaticlassics.com/parts/750-and-900-super-sport/all It shows the two different gear change and clutch layout pages but the clutch housing and drum have the same part numbers; it looks like the clutches are exactly t...

Re: Rotor Rust Dust

Yes. Mood lighting helps. A long time ago, my old 850 Commando was in the living room and the Ducati in the kitchen. The living room had sliding spot lamps so, of course, they were angled to highlight the bike leaning on it's loonnng sidestand. One of dumbest mistakes selling the Norton. https://i.i...

Last ride for the MHR today. She's snug in the living room until Spring.

Re: Rotor Rust Dust

One more reason for my old girl to come back into the living room for winter; I'm warm then she's warm too.

Beautiful bike. I can't help directly but suggest you post this to the technical section above under "electrical".

Good luck.

Re: Looking for a technique

A smart move. My MHR has bolts from the factory. After painting my front mudguard and giving the paint a long cure time, I waxed the guard but added a lot more on the sides that would be pressed up against the lower fork legs to do my best to prevent the new paint from sticking to the fork legs.

Show day!

I was invited to join a local "Concours D'Elegance" (show and shine to the rest of us). They already had a full show but there was a 92 MH900e that would have been lonely so one of the organizers asked me to bring the 81 Hailwood as a reference to the later model. Lots of great bikes and great peopl...

no longer naked!

I put the fairing back on today after riding for a while without following the rebuild. I forgot how noisy the thing makes the motor; extra bevel sounds directed straight up. I'm still not sure about the "Ducati" decals; I have them but like the old 79 look without. https://i.imgur.com/9I1jdQN.jpg h...

Re: New ignition system: need advice!

Hi Richard: my first Ducati was a 75 860GT! All sorts of goodies packed inside the headlamp shell. It's good that these bikes are relatively basic; keeps wiring simple.
