Re: replacing 750gt dash w/ 750 sport - where to hide the wi

.....also I noticed that on the 750GT the generator ("GEN"-THOSE CRAFTY ITALIANS!) has a fuse in line - so I take it that I probably have to rewire that with some kind of in-line fuse to complete the circuit to get the bike to start and run..... That's not a fuse. It is the GEN bulb. I believe it i...

I know I'm late on this thread, but I would be interested in the extra rings you have for my 500's pistons. Also, you state that there are no o-rings between the head and cylinder. Ducati made a change and on my '78 500 Desmo there ARE o-rings. A different head gasket is needed that has larger hole...

I know that I'm getting in late on this thread but I have an observation. I have in front of me one of each filter. Stock and Fram. It looks like two or three extra rubber washers would make up the difference in the Fram filter.

Do you mean that the "shim paper" is around the circumference of the bearing as it sits in the case? If so, it may mean that the old bearing (before the rebuild) had seized up and spun in the case wearing the case larger.

I don't believe you specified what bike you are working on, but if it is a bevel Ducati I think you will have better luck using a file to smooth out the ridges in the STEEL clutch center.

They also have a repair to the inside of the RHS one where the PO mal-adjusted the spindle and cut the conti! And they've still got some evidence of pitting on them even with the nickel on (hopefully that would cover up with the chrome). Chrome is transparent. You need more copper and polishing to ...

Even though you mucked up the old one, I believe there's still enough room to fit 6 or 7 more seals in that hollow space right on top of the old seal.

Look how your rear damper's upper mounts attach to the frame. If they slide over a stud it's a narrow frame. If there is a bolt that goes through a bracket welded to the frame, it is wide.

Can you sand the shims a couple of thousandths? Yes. I use 400 wet and dry (used wet).

It will smoke for a while when it is new. Just a little oil on the winding from manufacturing. Save your money. The car coils and that ballast resistor should work just fine. You can gap your plugs to at least .035". I gap mine at .038" and am using the equivalent to an NGK BP6HS.

That is part number 0755.29.700 . It is a set of matched gears. The one that goes on the crank, and the one it mates to. I don't know who has them, but someone will.
