Greetings from Colorado

Howdy from Colorado, I recently got back my 1995 900ss. It has some minor issues. With a little help from this sight I might get those issues resolved. It's always a blast to ride. Can hardly wait to get it back on the road.
Cheers,
Stephen

cam belt tension

All other problems resolved. I've just changed the belts on the Paso as well as the 900 ss. Why isn't the belt adj tighter? I mean, a belt driving the cams on a car would be tight. A serpentine belt on a car for A/C, power steering, power brakes,etc would also be tight. and with the tight tolerances...

Re: clutch bleeding

Persistence pays off. With a combination of a power bleeder and pumping and bleeding. I got some lever back. So much that the clutch will not engage fully now. The clutch plates are beyond there wear limit of 0.129. Mine are under 0.125. I've got a new set on order. I also had a fluid problem with t...

Re: clutch bleeding

Well, not much success yet. I have tried removing the clutch/slave cover and hung it under the lever, to get more of a "lever over the slave cylinder" arrangement. Phe plunger in the slave moves slightly. I'm beginning to think this clutch is not complete. I can get my head around workings of a clut...

Intro

Hi, I'm Ordinaryguy. I live in colorful colorado. I recently purchased a 95 900ss. It needed a rear tire, some body repair and paint plus clutch master cylinder. Seems to be in good working order now. I am also working on some of my friends bikes. A Paso and a 918.

clutch bleeding

Got the solenoid problem resolved. Just had some wiring on wrong. Still trying to bleed the clutch though. I've done as the manual suggested but with no results. No air in lines as far as I can tell but lever goes right to the grip with no resistance. I've even pumped fluid from the slave up to the ...

Starter solenoid replacement

Greetings, I have a 88 Paso. I was able to start it bypassing the starter solenoid with a screwdriver. It's been replaced but I guess I have the wiring in the correct place. I've got a few more wires than the original schematic shows. I do have one large wire from the bat to one side of the solenoid...

Re: crunchy clutch

That "sounds" familiar. Maybe I can still get a ride in this weekend. Yeah, the instructions made sense, they just were'nt quite "American" enough.
Thanks a million, again.

Re: crunchy clutch

Well I got the rebuild kit with the install tool. The kit does not include a cir clip like in the instructions Just a wire ring that looks like it get's hammered in with the tool. What direction does the lock ring go? Taper away from the tool or taper towards the tool?
Thanks,

Greetings, I'm Steve. I have a 1995 Ducati 900ss. It has fairly low miles with a few body panel flaws but the present problem is a crunchy clutch lever. it's like I'm breaking walnuts when I squeze the lever. Will a rebuild kit fix the problem? Clutch seems to operates normally. Before this Ducati I...
