Re: 1978 darmah - trans gets stuck in neutral

Bizarre! This is a new one for me; I'm glad you found the problem. I suspect that the lock washer had been reused one too many times. Good luck!

Re: 1978 darmah - trans gets stuck in neutral

Hi Doug: Could be a couple of things; I'd start with the easiest, the clutch. I don't know why, but there seem to be a lot of owners that have clutch pull issues. If the clutch doesn't disengage fully, it can be, for obvious reasons, tricky to get the bike to go into gear. Usually the complaint is t...

Re: WTB SD900 darmah idiot light housing / bar clamp

You the same fellow looking for the same part on one of the FB forums? If not, I'll point you to the right one; there's a guy who made his own who may be able to help.

Re: Fuel pouring from carby

Always dangerous to make assumptions but as the bike had new carburetors only two years ago and has only been very lightly used, I didn't think it likely that the float valves would have aged and hardened. It's more likely that something is jammed in the carb fuel valve. The float full of fuel shoul...

Re: Fuel pouring from carby

I strongly suggest removing the carb, you can leave the slider and top hanging in the bike, take the bowl off and turn the thing upside down on a table top and measure the float height as described in the manual. It's really easy to adjust with the carb on a table in front of you. It is possible tha...

Re: 1974 750 GT Speedo removal

Take a peek at this: https://www.ducaticlassics.com/parts/750-gt-and-sport/all/dashboard-750-gt It looks like the top and bottom plastic parts of the dash have to be separated to access the metal rings that support the clocks and their locking nuts. The clocks can then get pushed through the top pla...

Re: Removing rubber gauge holder cup

I'm glad this was resolved so easily. Maybe before you put it back together, put a thin film of rubber-friendly grease around the rubber contact surfaces so it doesn't stick in the future. Post pics!!

Re: Removing rubber gauge holder cup

If you have access to a heat gun, you could try a very gentle application of heat just to warm the rubber and make it more supple. Maybe try squeeze a thin feeler gauge between the rubber part and the clock and spray in some lubricant then work the feeler gauge around the clock.

Re: Disassembling Rear Shock on GT750

If you Google the subject, there are discussions about rebuilding old GT shocks but I could not find pictures. My guess would be that if you compress the spring and the cover as one, there will be a "C" ring of some kind at the top that can then be removed to allow the cover and spring to be removed...

Re: How to re-install top fork nut on 1975 860GT?

Hi Richard: Been there and done this several times. What I would suggest to do first is take the springs out each side and ensure that the caps will go on easily enough without the back pressure, checking to ensure that the threads are not damaged. If the forks are on the bike, it may help to loosen...

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...
