m You don't need bleeder screws on the calipers to bleed your brakes. Here is how I bleed my brakes and it has never failed me. I am assuming that the M/C and caliper were correctly rebuilt and assembled. First of all, I never bleed my brakes just to replace the fluid. It is so easy, that I always ...

After you split the cases, before you do anything else, lay the left hand case (containing the transmission) down on some supports so the shafts are free. Spin the output shaft by hand while you turn the shift drum. Observe the transmission slipping into 1st gear. Look to see the 1st gear gear dogs...

Maybe I can help. I have owned a 500 Desmo since new in 1978. First make sure both plugs are firing when you turn the engine over. Unscrew the plugs and suspend them by their leads having them rest against the head. Push the start button and observe the spark or lack thereof. Now move on to the car...

Re: turn signals on 750GT

.....I can get the turn signals to light up and change sides using the switch but as soon as the relay is introduced......nothing. Here is what I would do. Remove one complete rear turnsignal and remove the flasher unit. Using a 12v battery and a couple of jumper wires, try and see if you can get t...

It is my understanding that the older round reservoir master cylinders (clutch & brake) that Brembo refers to as 15mm, will actually measure 15.875mm (that's 5/8in.). The newer rectangular m/c measure metric (12, 13, 15, 16mm)

Although most any Asian rear wheel could be adapted using the proper spacers you probably want an original. They show up on eBay in the USA quite regularly. Try emailing Jean Allard [email protected].ca . He offers Ducati items on eBay all the time under the user name tiguiz . I think this fellow is in C...

First, 860's and 900's are both 864cc. If you still have stock paint, what color is your bike? Can you post a picture
or email a picture to me?

I'm using a piece of thick rubber hose that is tight on the manifold end and REAL TIGHT on the carb. I'm using a thinner actual piece of radiator hose to go on the rear of the carb to the airbox.

What is the jetting now? Needle, atomizer, mains, pilots, slide. And carb size (32mm or 40mm).
