Re: spark plug caps!

I ended up ordering a pair of NGKLB05F caps and was impressed; each cap has two waterproof boots, one for the HT cable and one for the plug.

Re: After 25 years, its time

Misterb: Speedrocker (Joe) and I are already internet pals in the same boat as you. Mine is still in my living room but should be complete in another month; off the road since very early 1990! Joe and I have been helping and commiserating each other so please feel free to join in the get-the-Hailwoo...

spark plug caps!

What are folks using for bevel twins? One of my original 81 MHR ones has a broken wire coil, the bit that the plug top pushes into, and a new one costs over US$50. There's got to be a better way. NGKs?

Re: hi names jake, recomissioning a GT

Welcome Jake: My first Ducati was a 74 GT860; a great bike except for its looks. I put on a Darmah tank, a Hailwood seat, Tomasseli clip ons, a 2-into-1 exhaust, home made rear sets and clock plate and painted it all black, including the engine casings and barrels. It was a great bike. I have the ol...

Re: Introduction

Great looking bike Rob. I know how you feel about the tyres; my 81 Hailwood Replica is wearing what looks like brand new Pirelli Phantoms but unfortunately they are about 32 years old so have to go and now I can't find the same.

Do you have other Ducatis in your collection?

Re: Hailwood replica in northern germany...

Hi Joe: I also need a windscreen. These are the folks I have been working with: https://bikescreen.com/products/ducati-h-rep-1981-1984 I measured my upper fairing and took a bunch of pictures and sent them to Bikescreen a few days ago. Their website used to show a Mk I and a Mk II Hailwood fairing. ...

Re: Hydraulic clutch on my 900 MHR..aftermarket,..anyone knows ?

Hi Joe: This is a first for me. If you search Bevel Heaven, you will find a hydraulic clutch conversion that fits inside the cover and doesn't involve any cutting of original parts:

Re: Hailwood replica in northern germany...

Hi Joe: On the 1st of April 1981, the UK increased the cost of registering a new vehicle by a significant amount so there are a whole bunch of "W" registered vehicles including a bunch of MHRs. Mine would have been made in late 80 and was registered in March of 81, sadly the month Mike Hailwood was ...

Re: Hailwood replica in northern germany...

Hey Joe: My shopping list is similar; carb and brake seal kits, a missing rear brake return spring, battery strap! I received a full Keihan exhaust system today; my old headers looked pretty bad, especially the right side and I'm upgrading the suspension; a pair of Ohlin DU140 rear shocks arrived on...

Re: Hailwood replica in northern germany...

Hi Joe: It's good to see another MHR owner on the forum. My 81 MHR is in bits and pieces in my home now; same as you, a mild "restoration" warts and all (not that there are many), also only around 20k km on the bike. I've just been cleaning rocker covers! Tomorrow my Keihan stainless exhaust should ...

Veglia speedo drive observation

Hi all: I just inspected and cleaned my 81 MHR Veglia speedo drive. When I first checked it, the tab drive ring moved easily enough but it felt like the thing was greased; some moderate resistance. I did some research, even found a 10 year old thread here where Steve advises using a 50W oil dropped ...
