Re: Very low charge rate 250 NC 60w converted to 12v

Following the given details, the situation stays unclear for me. You measured ~6V AC on each lead against the chassis? Was this done while the leads were disconnected from the R-R or not, and did you measure at idle speed or higher revs, i. e. 4k? You quoted the leads having no connection to chassis...

Re: '73 Ducati 350 Ignition system

This company http://www.uk-motoplat.com/home.html in the UK might be able to repair the Motoplat stuff. I have no personal experience with them. On the other hand, these spanish parts are known for premature failure, a weak spark resulting in difficult starting, etc. The Ducati CDI version is much b...

Re: UK Ducati 250 mk3

Well, if it is a spanish made engine, it would have been equipped with a Motoplat ignition/alternator (which is known to produce a weak spark and to fail often). Also, the oil pump drive gear, idling between crankshaft and points shaft, is made from plastics and is known to wear or fail prematurely....

Re: UK Ducati 250 mk3

Hi, the Haynes manual is a good starter for the late w/c singles. It deals also with both electronic ignition systems (Ducati and Motoplat); one of these should be present in a 1974 model (no points). The original alternator/battery system was 12V, but can easily converted to 12 V with a cheap chine...

Re: Mach 1 Red Paint code

From an older Lechler list:

250 MACH 1 1964-67
COLORE PRINCIPALE ROSSO CORSA DUC A13
PARTICOLARI IN ALTRA TINTA GRIGIO PERLA MET DUC A18


Lechler is the italian company which produced the paints for nearly all italian motorbikes, is still active today.

Re: 4 speed shift pattern?

Ian,

you will experience that shifting will be easy when the engine runs and all gears/selectors are immered in oil. Don't worry.
A difference in up- and down-shifting might be regulated with the excentric adjuster screw/locking nut mechanism in the gear selctor box. Try it out.
