Re: 860GTS into Darmah

I have both a 900GTS and a Darmah in my garage, and fail to see any difference between the engine mounting holes on the two models. If you want me to check any specific measurements, just let me know.

Re: Fairings/windscreen sources

most of the fairings out there are “basic” 900 SS fairings. I am in the process of rebuilding my own Darmah after a fire and found this fairing, which i belive to be more true to the original Darmah. https://ducati-gowanloch.com/shop/bodywork/front-fairing/ducati-ssd-fairing/ It has two main differe...

Re: Ducati 900 SS '82 | Front cylinder exhaust running hot

Hi Rob,

Thank you for your post. I'm both glad and sad to find another Ducati owner with same type of issue.
I will try and check timing and advance on mine in a couple of days.

If you manage to get the issue resolved, please do tell about it, when the bike returns to you *-*

Re: Ducati 900 SS '82 | Front cylinder exhaust running hot

Called the Ducati specialist yesterday and asked him if any work was done to the pickup wiring. He confirmed that both wires endeed had been in a sorry state, and that the wires had been replaced. He purposed that I altered the idle jet setting on front cylinder wit the purpose of settling the front...

Re: Cylinder base gasket - 900 bevels.

Hi Lumpy, I guess that could be a reason. The bikes came from two different sellers, so don't think that is the reason. Did a bit of research last night, and found a UK based webshop that sells these Cylinder base "Shims". http://www.laceyducati.com/ducati-parts/gaskets-seals-gaskets-c-175_198_216.h...

On my 900 SS the rear cylinder had a paper gasket, then the ...

Re: Ducati 900 SS '82 | Front cylinder exhaust running hot

Hi Gardner,

Thank you for the input - I'll check with the specialist who had the engine checked and hear if wiring is old or new.
Will post again when I have an update :)

Best regards,

Ducati 900 SS '82 | Front cylinder exhaust running hot

Hi all, I hope that someone in this forum has some insights that I can use. My Ducati 900 SS is running very hot on the front cylinder exhaust pipe. So hot that the exhaust pipe is glowing red on an ordinary ride without any specific stress on the engine. The combustion of both front and rear cylind...

Still im wondering.. without the special tool it seems a bit 'random' how the pickups are alligned, which strikes me as odd. On my onl ...

What Darren says might be true. I havent seen the schematics of an S2 electrical system. Either way your right about the fact, that it isnt necessarily a problem. As I recall the link I posted earlier on, explaines how to test the generator - if the generator output is high enough, there shouldn't b...
