Steve,
I'm currently working away from home (on a small island) and only have a work supplied laptop that because of Corp policy doesn't allow certain downloads.

It can wait till I get home at the end of the month.

Thanks for the response.

Got this error message: "Adobe reader - the file is damaged and could not be repaired"

Got a similar error when I found the same file elsewhere.

Steve,
Thanks mate but I already found that one. I tried to work out how to download it all in printable format. But that is beyond my computer skill level.

I wanted it in bound paper format so I could refer to it while swearing at my Italian love affair.

Cheers

73 GT 750 - Workshop manual

I have been collecting bits for my basket case 73 GT for several years and now it is time to pull the engine to bits. I have tried to find a workshop manual to download (pdf format) but no joy. I have a few Ducati books that fall way short of useful stuff on engines. If anyone wants to lend me a pdf...

All,
Just logged into the Bevel Rubber site and there were the seal kits. Looks like a new addition.

Plus you get to shop for plug gaps whenever a local store has a "Clearance Sale". Save heaps that way.


:-D

P.S.

I also collect skinless balloons.

OK. If worse comes to worse I can force the old rubber out and then grind the out ring as I assume it will be frozen in place. A bit of a clean up then squeeze the new ones in using my vice. Done this sort of thing before. Patience is my middle name.

Gee nice find there. Mount them behind glass in the pool room and retell the story...




The rubbers and metal bits look like the originals. I assume they are press fit and will be an absolute bugger to take out the old ones.

73 GT - bolt sizes

Simple question for you experts. What size are the bolts that hold the side covers in place. Can you specify head diameter and thread size and length please? Couldn't find details on the web. I only need these bolts to complete the bike. Plus an engine rebuild, and a paint job, and spokes and... You...

Thanks for the advice guys...new coils it is.

Now all I have to do is find a place that sells coils while the Aussie dollar exchange rate is good. ;)

machten,
Yeah I looked at that site, also looking at HagonOz.com.au and found this size 1/2" x 24 x 22 which may work too. I'm going to buy one ($6.50 plus postage) and see how it goes.

What are the best tyres for a GT750 (ones that are available in Australia at a reasonable cost). I'm after ones that look the right size (I remember putting a 'modern" slightly larger tyre on my 750SS back in mid 80's but it was too big and looked crap and "disturbed" the handling from memory.) Not ...
