Re: tank badge removal

The badge will have to be levered off the mounting bracket underneath. Just work carefully and alternate from top to bottom and left to right of the badge. Make sure the badge lifts evenly. I recall that there were some retaining clips in the mounting hole. A bit like valve collets. So have some ra...

1982 Ducati MHR 900 Fairing.

I am looking for a top and bottom fairing for a 1982 MHR 900. Alternatively if someone can direct me to a good after market manufacturer of these I would be appreciative.

Re: Scarab bleeder screw

The photo shows what the original 1974 Ducati 750 SS Scarab brakes look like. I hope this may help.

Center stands

The part numbers for 750 GT/S center stands are the same but are different to the 74/75 SS stands. What is the physical difference and can they be swapped over?

Re: 70's MV Agusta 750

Kev,
the beauty of these machines is they give their own characteristic ride that modern bikes can't do. All three in that photo will give a lot of enjoyment to someone who tries them.

Re: 70's MV Agusta 750

Tobacco, I have ridden and owned a 1972 drum braked 750s.I restored it and also an 850 America at the same time. I am currently just finishing another 750s drum brake model for someone else. The engines are superb and the bikes are a bit heavy but the handling is good with modern TT100s considering ...

Re: Brev Orlandi parts

It has been a few years now so I thought I would see if things have changed for Orlandi filters and levers.

Re: Are Japanese Imports really that bad?

If someone wants to buy a particular Ducati then,to me, it doesn't matter which country it is imported from. The bike was still made at the factory. The people who quote "original Australian Import" are using a perception that they have to get the best price possible. Buying second hand always comes...

Re: Restoring a 750 sport

If you can send some photos and info to [email protected] I can give you an idea of what you will possibly need to pay. I have done up 12 Italian bikes and have a fair idea what costs are.

Re: Early Green Frame

The magazine looks like "The Motorcycle World" by Phil Schilling so I guess that the SS is one of the two that were purchased by Phil and Cook Neilsen. From what I remember reading Phil still has his in original condition.

Re: Darmah Turn switch wanted

Those switches were common to a number of Suzukis. So your best bet is to go to a wrecker and get a switch assy that doesn't work but has the parts that you need.

Dellorto Carb Question

Can anyone tell me which of the UB/MB series was manufactured first, ie which is the older of these groups of carbs? Is it possible to change from one to the other with the same slides, jets etc.? Also, is there any one of the two preferred for performance?
