Re: Refurbishing Cagiva Elefant 650 rubber intake parts

I've made a repair with some selfvulcanizing tape and reenforcing the filterrubbers so the carbs don't weigh so heavy on the intakes. Next is some monster-tubes and tigwelding. Haven't found any straight swaps yet but maybe the smaller injectionbikes have the correct angle and diameter. Fitting some...

Re: Hi Ducatisti

Sadly those intakerubbers are getting scarce, even in europe. Great bike though and with a few tweeks touring at +100 was possible, at least in the pre-radargundays :-D Same problemen with the 916 : it begins to get comfortable to ride above legal speeds (except in Germany) Welkome on the forum Ciao...

Re: Tab washer bender tool

Hey Richard, Yes, still looking for it (didn't find it but up in the Alps my internet isn't on Duc-speed :shock: ). Mind You : it is a tool where You fit the pistonpinclip on and then just push it in the piston. No fuss with pliers, screwdrivers and rags pushed in the crankcase and SILENCE in the ga...

Re: Clutch basket bearings.

We all know that manufacturing in those wasn't Always upto the standard we use today. I think it is plausible that with a crankgear a bit worn, a drumbasketgear a bit worn and the distance between crank and inshaft a tad to the maximum tolerance and a set of not too fresh bearings, the drum could be...

Re: Ducati Brio 100 almost finished

Nice work :-D
Never seen a REALLY good Brio in the flesh, even over here in Europe.
Post some pics of the rubbers and we can try to source them.

Re: Marzocchi Shocks

About the cap : on the lathe I made a cilinder, two holes drilled and tapped (IIRC M4) at the same distance of the holes in the cap. Two bolts that protrude a few mm and welded a 17mm nut on top so that You can pushdown and turn it loose at the same time. Don't have it around here :cry: About the po...

Re: Advice For Kickshaft Seal Replacement

Since this shaft (and the gear on it) is above the highest oil-level, it is plausible that excessive crankcasepressure triggered the leak.
Minimum diameter of the tube is the ID of the black piece above the crankcase.

Re: Recomish Help for SSD

Is it just the wiring harness You need to reposition or all the parts ?
Don't think there's that much room to move the wiring around and connect all the dots ?
Isn't there anything in the manual ?

Re: 140 tire in Darmah swingarm

I've had a 140/70-18 Michelin TV on a 3.50 Akront in my Darmah.
And later a 160/60-16 on a 4.25 Montjuic Akront but here I had to modify the carrier and sprocket for a few mm to avoid chain-tire contact.

have fun

Re: SS desmo cams in GTS motor

I have a set SS cams that are "modified" for spring-use. The holes in the closer-lobes are welded so all oil goes to the openers. You will have to fit desmo-opener-rockers and they WILL wear fast. You CERTAINLY won't be able to rev it to 8500 without risk with the standard springs. Don't know about ...

Re: Rotating cams during desmo valve adjustment

I always took the engine out and the heads off. No fuss. But yes, I needed a second pair of hands to take it out and put it back in and a set of new o-rings. Gives you the chance to clean and inspect other stuff also. Didn't want to go the path of removing those bevels when I put so much time in get...

Re: Anyone parting out a Ducati Brio?

Even in Italy they are scarce and so are good parts.
The engine shares parts with other Ducati smokers :-D and of those You can still find NOS.
