Roger,

Why shouldn't I agree, after all I do not race my Mille!
And yes I do use synthetic castrol in my Duc.
Thanks for sharing your experiences!
I hope you will be back on this Forum more often, as I think you know a lot of these fantastic motorcycle icons!!

Well, the filtration is done by a by pass oil filter!
And the plain big end needs a 8X higher oilpressure than the needle roller big end!

Yes, meaning the Mille engine is even more sensitive for oil quality!!

I, for myself, would not use a single grade oil in a beveltwin, when your Duc is in good condition, there's no need for a so called "classic" oil. Just use any modern multigrade (synthetic) motorcycle oil with the right specifications and weight. For example, I use synthetic Castrol RS 4T 10W50 in m...

I use Bosch W5AS 0.6mm in my Mille MHR. According to the Bosch catalog, your bike needs 0.8mm electrode gap, don't see why though. Champignon L88=Bosch W8AC, which is 2-3 heatranges hotter than Bosch W5AS. Most bevel twins use W6BC according to that Bosch catalog. The Bosch W5AS is slightly colder, ...

Campagnolo wheels

I'm running Camagnolo gold 5-spoke wheels from a 1978 Darmah in my MHR Mille Special. Some years ago they started to corode on the outside (white powder) I had the wheels blasted and powdercoated after discovering that. Now I've been told it's dangerous to drive with those wheels, they can break wit...

Hey Duck,

Don't have an answer to your problem, but:
The Suzuki GS400, GS425, GS450 and GS500 twins all use the
same Nippon Denso starter like the Ducati Mille!
Makes it a little easier to find replacements, right?
Good luck! :-D

Be sure to use a non electric start chassis!!
To make room for the larger battery, Ducati weakend the chassis a lot!

Nico, My Mille came factory equiped with Michelins. The roadholding was so tricky and unpredictable, it scared the hell out of me, every time I drove the bike. I contacted the Dutch Michelin importer, and they came with all sorts of solutions, but nothing worked, it became even worse! I switched to ...
