Hey Hugh, +1 on what both Crash and Ralph said. Good (cheap, easy) places to start. The idle screws may need to be as much as 2.5-3 turns out depending other intake factors. And don't expect that both carbs will be set the same number of turns out either. They could well be a different number of tur...

Would you believe it - 14V at the battery, so it must be charging! After all that with Electrex, as well. I now have a carb niggle - will post in appropriate board. Thanks, Dean for your help so far, although I'm not completely ruling out a rewind and re-wire........ :? Hugh Hey Hugh, I've been awa...

G'day Welsh, The pink/black is the only one of that color that shows on the schematic. It goes from the Alt light through a 12 pin connector (pin 4) and then on to ground. It is definately a ground wire. Does your Alt light work now? If it does then don't worry over the loose wire. If it doesn't the...

Hello again, Dean - how's life? The standard unit has a big heatsink - are we talking about the same bike? (1979 900SS). Also I'm not sure what you mean by the 'battery side' of the charging light. Would it help for me to upload a wiring diagram? I have the best brains in the UK working on this one...

Hi Welsh, The regulator/rectifier on our bikes is an interupter type charging system as opposed to a shunt system used on newer (post 1990) bikes. This means that our reg/rec allows a charge voltage only when needed to replentish the battery. This is also why you see no heat sink. This system doesn'...

Re: Fuel Airlock????

I have had a couple of incidents where I lose power. If I pull over I can notice that the fuel line to the rear cylinder is dry. If I simply tap the line the fuel starts to flow again. Is this probably just a sticky float? Or is there something else I should look at. Any suggestions would be welcom...

It's Kokusan Denki, and they are ignition modules. The brand is commonly used on modern Ducatis. They would be an upgrade, not original.

THanks very much for the info guys. I was attempting to restore this bike to factory specs, but if the Radaelli rims aren't good, then what's the point? Where can I get Excel rims and proper spokes? Cheers, Kyle. You can get the proper spokes from Steve and the rims can be sourced from Buchanon. Dean

Re: Radelli Rims in USA?

Anyone know where the Radelli Rims can be purchased in the US? Cheers, K. Hey K, Not in the USA that I can find. Radaelli Rims are readily available in the UK if you do a Google search several distributors will come up. You could go to http://www.buchananspokes.net/ in the USA to see what they woul...

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 Hey G, NGK recommends not adjusting the gap more than .008 because it might cause misalignment of the electrodes. Adjusting from .032 to .040 is pushing that l...

Hey G,
Standard is .032. With the Dyna use .035 -.040.
With the BP6HS I'd start at .035.
Hope this helps.

Re: Voltage regulator

Dean Thanks for your comments, love your pictures but is your fastback side panel standard? What about your mates rear disc, it looks different to anything Ive seen in the UK David Hi David, Glad you like the pics. Yes, the side panel is correct. That is actually the original paint.

Re: Voltage regulator

Baddean One further thought! I have never ever ridden a Ducati, how will I find my 860 compared to my 750 commando Thanks in anticipation David I'll weigh in on this as well. I think you will find that the 860GT is smoother and the five speed trans makes it more user friendly. It might be a bit hea...
