The headcracking of the rear isn't only on 860's : Darmah were also found. I think it had more to do with the hot air not able to escape behind the head hence running too hot. Those tanks dropped over the frame and the sidepanels were more forward and deeper. SSs did have more airflow around the rea...

Craig, no need to apologize. Ducati's history (and especially the weird stuff) isn't documented very well. Just happened to run into some old belgian mags and piece things together. The litlle 2stroke is a 60's thing, when Ducati was trying to cash in on the Vespa Ape-rage. Is the "same" e...

Clean up the 350 and fit the 500 Desmo engine.

Driver31 Can't remember how exactly we got them off (+20 years ago) but sure we had to adapt some tools and apply force :evil: Gasket between cyl and head was critical. Two types were used : ordinary headgasket (later) or the bevel-type sunken cylinder (bad). Oil going to the head was always a probl...

Colin, A few of us raced bevels in nearly standard form mid 80's. The Belgian scene of BOTT-racing wasn't really top, but I can say the beveleers were the only ones, who just had to adjust the gearing. No working. Couldn't be done either, with such mechanics inside. We progressed step by step, modif...
