Re: Lower bevel gear and spindle

Let's take the spare-parts book of MHR on THE site :-D TAV9 shows the complete bevel factory. #25 is a press-fit on the primary part of #17 and that is a press-fit on #16. There is a key to fix position of #17 to #25 It is possible to dismantle them withouth heavy equipment but it should be a tight ...

Re: 75 860GT Timing Question

It isn't as easy on a springvalve as on the desmo but here's the method. Turn the bevel-shaft of the heads untill the marks on BOTH gears lign up exactly. For one cylinderhead, this is with both valves closed, for the other one valves are open (but in fixed position). AND the Oldhamcoupling should b...

Re: Disc rear end

My error, indeed it has got a 40 spoke rear wheel.
Must've mistaken it for a 350-500 GTL wheel.
Or just brainfade, or my four girls driving my crazy.

Again my sincerest apologies for this mistake.

Sure hope You did orde the correct one ?

Re: Need rim info for 1975 Ducati 860GT

It could be that procedures were a bit changed since the 80's but when I had my rims anodised then, they came out rather dull, and CERTAINLY not so shiny as a polished or chromed rim. Rear wheel2.jpg I had two sets, and the other set is just the same, rusted discs but everything else is dusty. No co...

Re: 860GT Rear Wheel Drum Brake Spacer Quest for Clarification

From memory now : both the drumbrake and the sprocketcarrier have the inside triangular shaped. The width of that shape is what keeps the bearings (2 in each) apart, therefore the spacer that is fitted is at least 0.1 mm longer and probably 0.5 mm. The shape of the spacer on the outside of the carri...

Re: Taillight ???... for Mike Hailwood TT Replica, anybody knows ?

Since the Honda 750 was meant for the worldmarket and "safety-features" in the states were very strict, I really doubt that the taillight was japanese. The form is such that it would rather be on a 125 Italian bike from the 80's, with slim single-seats and very light weight to perform in the SP125 c...

Re: 1974 750 GT carb question

It could be a leak in the intake between carb and manifold/head. Didn't You mention cracked rubbers between manifold and head ? Or on some of the newer type manifolds : the rubber ring between manifold and head. The plastic bushing between carb and manifold that is split and doens't seal properly. c...

Re: 860GT rear wheel hub mystery piece

Just a distancepiece between the bearings.
Grease to keep it relative in place, as is the ring.

Re: Wheel surprises

The rim of the frontwheel looks like a 4777 ;) ;)
If those are stainless steel spokes, they could be Original Moto Guzzi.
The 6bolt carriers are made by Grimeca to fit Guzzi and Ducati.
The discs are EBC floaters.
All in all a nice and working upgrade :-D :-D

Why not look for a old, damaged frame and cut out that part, so that You can use the engine (or a template) to ...

Re: Neutral switch paradox

Inner covers are interchangeable : singles (4 or 5 speed) and paralleltwins. The latter also have the neutralswitchlug. The moving parts are also the same BUT there is a difference in some diameters of the shaft of the gearpedal. And off course the part that controls the fixation of the gears : 4 or...
