It mounts behind the left sidecover on a '74, I think the '73 is similar? http://www.teamyikes.com/Resources/Carb0097.JPG I ditched the stock filters on my bike and mounted a breather filter where the old airfilter went. (Yeah, it's the same bike... three years and a dollar or two later :lol: ) http...

Here's a fun fact that my dad taught me - some grease guns use the same thread on their tips as a brake line, so you can simply remove the gun's tip, screw the caliper onto the gun, and use that to force the pistons out. I've used a grease gun on a few stuck brakes, works pretty well most of the tim...

Hi Jeff, I haven"t seen a 160 Jr parts manual in electronic format anywhere, so that's no help, but they do show up on ebay now and then. Domiracer has them for sale too, for about $40 maybe? eBay seems to be a little over half that. What year is your 160? what plans have you got for it? What parts ...

When you post an image, it has to be a file, not a link to a webpage. If the link you put in between the image tags doesn't end in .jpg or something like that, it isn't going to work... What you've got there is a link to another forum... put it between URL tags and you should be able to click on it ...

Paint is done. The bike has finally seen the light of day for the first time in almost three years. Ok, part of the bike... still a lot of work to do.

No, bumpers are bumpers. Wings are fenders. Mudguards are fenders too... though on cars sometimes fenders are called quarter panels...

Here is a (poor) pic of the set-up on my '74. The regulator and fuse box are both non-Ducati, but the plate they sit on is original. http://www.teamyikes.com/Resources/FuseBox.JPG It is attached to the same welded on tabs as the tool tray attaches to. My guess is yours isn't stock... Here's a pic of...

Progress continues, slowly. Painting is underway... this was taken under a florescent light so the color is off, and the headlight shell looks like a blob, but what the heck. http://www.teamyikes.com/colors.jpg The color (House of Kolor Meteor Maroon) is a little lighter than I was hoping for, but i...
