Re: Clutch noise

Thanks for that information Steve. Hopefully it's something simple so will pull it apart then and see what I find.

Clutch noise

Hello all. I have a 750GT engine with clutch noise and hope someone can point me to a likely problem before I pull it apart. The clutch works perfectly but when I pull the lever in it's starting to make a bit of noise. My first thought was a thrust bearing or some such thing but on getting a manual ...

Might answer my own question here: the best I can determine is that the original Ducati manuals are wrong (surprise!) and the exhaust should be 0.15mm ...0.006 inch. That does sound better anyway. Cheers

750GT valve clearances

Hi. This may have been asked many times but I can't find it so apologies in advance. The original owner manual and other Ducati info states clearance for both inlet and exhaust is 0.10mm. All aftermarket manuals I can dig up (Haynes, Cycleserv and other sources) state 0.10mm for inlet and 0.15mm for...

Thanks Dean. I suppose the best gap is the biggest one that doesn't cause a misfire, so will start there and see what happens. Thanks, Greg

Plug gap with Dyna ignition - 750GT

Hello all. I have fitted my 74GT with a Dyna DS4-1 ignition and Dyna 5 Ohm coils. Before I fire it up I am fitting new NGK BP6HS plugs and was wondering if there is any experience out there with the best plug gap with this setup. Can anybody give me a good starting point please or any advice? These ...

Newbie - Australia

Now have another 74GT for a couple of years and thought I should finally sign up on this excellent site. Got a collection of old an new Yamahas too but had best not mention them here. Look...

Is detergent an issue when changing to Castrol DD 50?

Hello. Without wishing to start off with any sort of major oil discussion here... I'm aware of the negative comments about using a detergent oil in a bevel engine. Or should I say in a dirty engine where it's been said it can loosen deposits with bad results. So, if I was using Shell HD50, which I n...
