Here is a link to the AHRMA Marketplace ads from Jan 2017 issue.

It appears that this business has no web site.

Re: Reconditioning brake rotors

You didn't mention where you are located geographically or what bike this is for but this business advertises on the AHRMA (vintage MC racing) web site and in their rule book. Tool Salvage & Motorcycle Works, 15709 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH 44112; 216.451.5500. I have not used them but know that th...

Re: Anti-Seize or not?

Richard, I vote using Anti-seize and adjusting the torque. (I would, FWIW) The electrolytic action between the stainless bolts and the cases could be significant over time. I, too, use Anti-seize when assembling dissimilar metals. (spark plugs, exhaust nuts/bolts, etc.) Usually fasteners that are su...

Re: No charging issue 900ss

Fortunately there aren't too many b...tards on fleabay, but they seem too poke their heads up out of their holes just when you need something they purportedly have.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Re: No charging issue 900ss

Hi Dave,
You hadn't mentioned the ac voltage check in your first post. No ac would indicate a bad stator.
Let us know how it goes.

Re: No charging issue 900ss

Dave, Your trouble shooting process is good but maybe doesn't go far enough. You say in your post that the "alternator checks out". You then go on to say that your "only conclusion is to change the stator". The stator is the stationary part of your alternator. The two yellow wires come from the stat...

Re: Fuel shooting from hole in PHF32

Ric, That hole is a vent hole. It allows the float chamber to always be at atmospheric pressure. It is internally open to the float chamber. Are you sure that the float level is correct in that carb? Are you using the accelerator pumps or have they been disabled? If you are using the accelerator pum...

Re: OEM type wiring

Hi J, I'm a twins guy so I'm not completely familiar with the wiring requirements on your Diana. What color is your original plug wire? All that I have come across are black. The parts diagrams indicate a two wire cable from the generator. There is this from Classic Ducati and you might contact them...

Neilson California Hotrod '74 750SS on eBay

I have nothing to do with this sale.
I thought the Ducatisti here would be interested in the sale of this significant Ducati.
Below a link to the eBay auction.

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

Hi Craig, Welcome to Beveldom. Start with luggage. Anything hard will require custom mounting bracketry so soft is probably the way to go. There are a lot of good choices available. I like the Tourmaster line. Very affordable (don't let that fool you) durable, well made. http://www.sporttour.com/pro...

Re: 860 GT Rear Hub > 750 GT?

George, If it were a front (drum) brake I might be more concerned about the grooves. Being a rear brake, at least in my case, it wouldn't get used as much as the front so I wouldn't be concerned about cleaning it up and using it. Your call, but if the grooving is shallow the brake shoes will bed in ...

Re: 860 GT Rear Hub > 750 GT?

George,
Yes they are the same for the drum brake models.
750GT and 860GT part numbers are the same. (0795.80.453 bare hub with bearings)
