Re: Monza / Scrambler Frame Remove Rear Brake Lever

Also, is there a way to post pics? Further comments... Steve has a primer here on how to post pics: http://www.bevelheaven.com/~BB/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=16 Also, I found the e-mail with the links to your pictures. I don't think Yahoo allows "hotlinking", which means you can't host them at yahoo an...

This has been the biggest PITA on my 160 so far. Hate to say it... but I ended up cutting off the post the cable went on so I could spin the lever around and pull it off. Otherwise you need to push the pin out of the middle of the lever. Good luck. I tried using a puller but was only marginally succ...

Here's what I did with mine. It's a K&N filter (one with a stud on top). mounted to a simple bracket which is then mounted to the bracket that used to hold the stock filter housing. http://www.teamyikes.com/Resources/Breather1980.JPG I was a little worried about mounting it upside down thinking if a...

Re: Valve Additive for Unleaded Fuel

Just want ask for some advice re fuel additives for a 750GT. As I understand it, we are all adding an additive to our fuel for the older Ducks, to protect the valves (?) I'm not. The heads have seats installed in them that can handle unleaded gas just fine from what I can tell. Not that I ride the ...

ah... I assumed the ohter tanks listed were non-metalic too since "polyester" was part of the name. I don't know of anywhere that sells that tank done up in metal, other than custom tank builders. Certainly an option but not an inexpensive one. I have thought about building a similar bike out of my ...

I hid mine in the headlight, in the gauge pods, and under the dash itself.

That brings up a good point about these bikes: Is it wise to ride around a bike that is increasing in value, and would be hard to replace or repair if it was crashed? I can't remember for sure who said it so I'll credit it to Phill Hill. When asked about racing some priceless vintage car, he respon...

You also need to be careful that the banjo bolt on the M/C isn't the highest point on the system. Numerous times I've had difficulty bleeding a system and as soon as I remember how I fixed it "last time", I lean the bike to get a better angle on the master cylinder, and without even opening a bleed ...

I'm pretty sure this is the type of filter Steve is talking about (the pinkish colored thing to the right of the carb's filter). This is how I mounted one on a 750 GT, your application would be different. I was a little leary of installing it anywhere other than the high point of the hose, but it fi...

I'll second the motion on the Tommaselli. I put one on my 750 GT and after lubing the cables it works great.

I'll second the notion of checking with Rich at Motofinesse. He's helped me out a lot on my projects, including the '74 750 GT I just "finished" and is quite knowledgable about old Ducatis. New ones too for that matter.
