Re: 860 gt -75 Radaelli rim

I know this thread is a little old but thought I would put this up for future reference. The "AS" is the rear rim and the "ASTP is the front rim. Both are 40 hole rims but the angle of the spoke hole cut in the rear rim is different from the spoke hole cut angle in the front rim to accomodate the re...

Re: Stalling when hot

Ha, Peter,
Great minds seem to thing alike. ( and ride similar bikes)
I have a 1968 Norton Commando Fastback. (carbs sleeved)
Like you I prefer the 750GT to it.
When I get to ride my 1996 Ducati 916 it still makes me giggle though. Hell they all make me smile in my helmet.
Be safe out there,
Dean

Re: Stalling when hot

Peter, That's great news. Glad you worked it out. If I may... Based on the changes you made together I would say it would have been the o-rings in the carb tops that helped the issue. The springs on the throttle stop screw and the air screw are there primarily to put tension on them so they will sta...

Re: Stalling when hot

PJ3, You didn't mention if you have separate levers on each carb or if you have a cable operated lever on the handlebar. Either way, check to make sure that when you turn of the "choke" (enrichener) off it is all of the way off. If it is slightly open the bike will run great cold and well on throttl...

Re: Using an ST2 stator in squarecase.

Phil, You didn't indicate which square case you have. Some early 860GTs have the 3 wire 150 watt alternator used on the round case 750GTs. So the rotor would work here. After around May 1975 the 860GT and moving forward used a 200 watt 2 wire alternator. The parts manuals use the same part numbers f...

Re: want conti

Hi Droptal, I have a used Conti (0755.84.100) that would be good for a rider but you might not want it for a total restoration. Here's pics. I have tried to show it to best of my ability. It is used and has the usual wear. The internals are in good condition. I would like to get $300 US plus shippin...

Re: 1973 750GT stock regulator wiring?

Ah, I guess that that would be useful. In the schematic that is shown in the "Techical info" area of the main page under "wiring diagrams" for the 750GT you'll see that that the regulator shown has 5 terminals. 2 for yellow wires from the alternator, 2 for red wires (that are actully connected to on...

1973 750GT stock regulator wiring?

Hi All, I am in the process of rewiring my '73 GT to clean it up and replace 40 year old wires. I've replaced the stock fuse block with a modern blade type and have figured out my ultimate lay out, except.... I am going to power everything through the fuse block and switch from the battery. On the s...

Hi All, I use two of the lithium batteries. A Shorai LFX18 ( http://www.shoraipower.com/default.aspx ) that I have in a Kawasaki Concours 14. The battery in this bike is located in possibly the worst location due to heat. The Shorai is unaffected by heat, vibration, orientation, etc. Also an older f...

Hey N2,

Here is what it looks like from this angle. I will email more pics when I figure out why my email isn't working properly.
Looks good from here but there are marks other places.

Hi N2, I have a right side small bracket Conti with numbers 0755.84.100. It is used. It appears better than the originals you have pictures posted of. I replaced the exhaust on my '73 GT with new. I had it up on E-Bay last year trying to get $300 for it. It was advertised as in good shape for a ride...
