Re: Kickstarter gears and parts

:lol: for your comment ... Addendum: I just grabbed Mick Walker's book "Ducati singles restoration" from my shelf, and found a page describing kickstart issues in it. Mr. Walker writes: Kickstarter For many years this was the Achilles' heel of the Ducati single in its aspiration to become ...

Re: Kickstarter gears and parts

Of course you don't have bolt 040, as the second figure depicts the w/c kickstarter mechanism. The first figure is the right one, shows the two versions of the spring for the ratchet gear. Maybe I did not explain clearly enough what was meant ... So, for me there's no puzzle. Btw, the parts list sho...

Re: Kickstarter gears and parts

Hi Bob,

sorry, but I'm sure this figure depicts the n/c kick starter mechanisms. The w/c version, which I know precisely, is totally different, the gears are located inside the carters, still inaccessible after opening the primary drive cover:

Re: Kickstarter gears and parts

Here is a page from the french RMT manual: http://imghst.co/66/l=4PY2RBII.jpg The figure seems to come from an original parts catalog, which will be discovered some day ...

Re: Kickstarter gears and parts

I just found an old paper note about the n/c kick start mechanism somewhere in a drawer of my work bench. As it was unclear I searched for "narrow case kickstart" on Motoscrubs and found: http://www.motoscrubs.com/Narrowcase_Kick_Start_Repair/Narrowcase_Kick_Start_Repair.htm . This article...

Re: Kickstarter gears and parts

Bob,

you don't need any software program from those services. You only have to wait for an email from one of them, which means I had uploaded your file for download. The important thing needed in advance is your valid email adress. Please send it to me per PM.

cheers Hans

Re: Kickstarter gears and parts

I have a pdf (~12MB), for the 1964 and 1965 Mk3 as well as the 1964 GT, Monza, Mach1, SCR 5speed models. It covers the kickstart mechanism and lists all part numbers. I can send a download link, via sendspace or transferbigfiles.

cheers Hans

Re: Mototrans snail swing arm seized

Dave and Craig, at lamaneta.org they keep a list of chassis numbers http://www.lamaneta.org/numerochasis/ducati.html for identification of Mototrans bikes. According to this, the bike also may be a late "Road" model, with 12V electrics. The later Strada always came with 12V. Additional inf...
