Re: Drewitz full flow oil filtration.

Interesting set-up; mine's only half way. I found this on the Internet, same as yours: http://anthonygodin.co.uk/car/ducati-mhr/ It looks like a really clean system. Is there a cooler somewhere? What does the filter look like inside the Drewitz casing? I'm trying to work out how it works from pictu...

Re: Drewitz full flow oil filtration.

I have managed to ID the filter, it's from the old Yamaha XT500.

Drewitz full flow oil filtration.

I have an MHR which was imported to the UK from Germany. It's fitted with a full-flow oil filter system by a company called Drewitz which no longer exist.My problem is that the filter used is not the standard one used by Ducati. It has the same dimensions but has a one-way valve at the bottom and a ...

Re: Clutch basket bearings.

Hi Craig, thanks for taking the time to answer. I've always used the term 'basket' or 'drum' to mean the same part so I've learned something. I really mean part 30 with the two bearings in it. I have replaced these with new ones and refitted the thrust washer,basket,drum, tab washer and tightened th...

Re: Clutch basket bearings.

Well I checked the clutch drum from my SS, I have fitted the bearings correctly. So am at a loss to explain the excessive movement.
Ideas anyone?

Clutch basket bearings.

Hi Chaps. My MHR had got noisier recently ( not owned it for long and not done many miles on it). Removing the clutch cover I found the clutch drum had a lot of play ( not up and down on the shaft but rocking). So not the usual loose nut. I replaced the bearings with new ones, making sure that I ass...

900SS fairing bracketry, help needed please.

Hi chaps, I'm fitting the standard ss fairing to my bike as part of its restoration. I changed it from standard back in 1985 so I'm having some trouble remembering how it should assemble. Maybe someone can look at the attached photos and tell me what I am doing wrong? http://i727.photobucket.com/alb...

Hi all,

In answer to my own question and to help anyone else contemplating this, the single seat will not fit without some frame surgery. ie cutting off the spigots and welding tabs on in their place.

Helpfully,

Chas.

900ss side panel mounting brackets.

Hi all, I am in the process of restoring my heavily modified SS ( http://www.bevelheaven.com/~BB/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3086) back to standard condition. As you can see from the pics I cut off the side panel brackets to get the NCR look. I now need to fabricate replacements and have a question. When...

I too have had the opportunity to ride an MV four. I used to work with a guy that ran Verghera Engineering. We went on a ride-out to Epping ( well known meet-up place for bikers) one Sunday. On the journey back we swapped bikes. He road my breathed-on SS, his MV was 860 I think with ss carbs and oth...

Single seat on 80's SS

Hi fellow Ducatisti, I'm thinking of fitting the classic single seat to my 81 SS. It looks as if these seats are attached by screws at the side/rear of the seat unlike the 80's frames which have vertical studs ie. the seat base drops on top of these. So is it possible to fit the single seat without ...
