changed clutch now no gears???

as per the title really... clutch hub nut was loose so whilst i had the clutch apart fitted another set of plates.. got it all back together but now i cant seem to get any gears? I think its not selecting any gears rather than a no drive problem as even with the engine off, i can click it into gear ...

Re: Rat's nest wiring

Re: Modern Tyre sizes 1975 860GTE

ive gone for BT45's on my Darmah, and they work really well on it... not so keen on roadriders, i think they mustve changed in recent years as they always used to be first choice on my Guzzi but the ones currently fitted to my Le Mans dont feel as good..

Re: Howdy from the UK

my Dramah is my first bevel experience, but looks like you've had a bit more, and still come back for more ! :-D seems to be a bit more interest in the 860's these days.. have a look at these links for a couple of other people recent projects.. http://www.ducati-upnorth.com/forum/showthread.php?1948...

Re: Darmah Wiring Wishlist

thanks all, some food for thought there.... -*!^- especially the mention of a connector in the pick-up cable.. current loom is mostly original, which as usual is getting a bit frayed around the connectors and has a creeping green tinge under the insulation... a previous owner had done away with the ...
