FAQ - Voltage Regulator Swap

Regards connecting the Shindigen R/R to the Ducati wiring: Some bevel twins had only 2 yellow wires from alternator. Some models had a 3 wire alternator. Each may have a different set up. It would be really useful to have the instructions for both here. Can someone post a simple "yellow = yellow, re...

Battery charger; Sure-Charger IV

I use a "Sure-Charger IV". It was less expensive than the Battery Tender and as good or better quality. I have used it on 25 bikes in 10 years and it is like new still. Works great! I got it at my local dealer off the parts wall. George - why not tell us more about your Radio Shack charge monitor an...

bridge rectifier

I'm still waiting for someone to explain how this works and how to go about doing it.

Why spend money installing late model parts if I can just bolt on a new rectifier and "double charging output"?

Crinkle black?

All the later (74-75) 750 GT headlights (and identical Aprilia headlights used on 1975-1979 GT or GTS models) I've seen had satin black (smooth low gloss) paint on them. That paint 'might' have left the factory shiny black, but it always looked smooth - not crinkly. When RESTORING any bevel twin - s...

A great time was had by the two of us

Despite the light threat of rain, I was at Farley's at 10 AM in case anyone showed up to spite the rain. I just wore my Aerostich and threw on a fleece... what's a little water? John Burkhard and Paul Zell called to say they couldn't make it, and I got a message from Keith Hale and Ken Ward both say...

fork braces vs fork twist

I have had a couple fork braces on my bikes and found them more trouble than they are worth on a street bike. A good fork brace properly fitted is a good thing IN *specific circumstances*: - racing the bike or otherwise stressing the frame and forks ( in other words, if you are racing AND the fork t...

one front rotor versus two

Somebody mentioned fork twist when braking using a single rotor. I have actually never noticed this myself, even when racing bikes with skinny fork legs and one big brake rotor. I admit to having dual brakes on all my bevels, but only because they all came to me that way. If you weigh a bevel wheel ...

Thanks

hi Eldert- Thanks. Michael Moore lives a mile from me...I've known him for years. I am also in touch with a dozen other Motobi nuts around the world (and have traded emails with the Zanzanis). Parts are hard to obtain so I'm hoping some will turn up if I shake the bushes enough. It looks like some p...

Wanted: PHM40 Dellorto pumper for SS

I am in need of one good PHM40 Dellorto pumper as fitted to Ducati 900 bevel. Preferably like new but will be happy with a good rebuildable unit. I also have a good 38 pumper, a pair of 32s from a 750 Sport, a pair of original bellmouth screens, and a set of 750 Sport intake manifolds (hard to find)...

Regulator cure for roundcase charging? I'm skeptical.

I have already fitted a modern solid state regulator (from Eurospares). I have yet to read definitive proof that changing regulators improves the output of a roundcase. All I have heard sofar is electrical theory and (no offense) jargon like "bridge rectum-friers" and "sine wave theory". :) If what ...

Best gearing for '78 900SS w/ 40PHM's with stock rims/tires?

I'm getting ready to install a new chain and sprockets, and want to make sure my bike is geared right. I use it for street riding with occasional track forays. It has 15/36 right now (same as stock) and seems fine as-is. I might try a 38 rear for a little more grunt around the hills of SF (not that ...
