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

Thank you Jim for your precise and extensive explanation. But - 55W of power consumption is only valid for H4 bulbs. Standard Tungsten wire bulbs are rated 40/45 W, at least in Europe. This makes the situation a bit more relaxed, but a leftover of 20 W anyhow, for the rear light and the other remain...

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

Hi Bob, imho it is not possible to get more than the original 60W from the 4-coil alternator - no hidden trick here. A load reduction is a good idea, but I'm afraid the LED bulbs are made for 12 Volts, so you have to make the conversion and need a (cheap) new 12V R-R. I never tried it, but it might ...

Re: 175TS Fork Strip Question

I found some info in the 160 Monza jr. spares catalog. This bike obviously has fork with 30mm stanchions, and indeed no O-rings inside. May be it is similar to the early 125/175 type. I can send the pdf (~9MB) by email, on request.

Re: Torque wrench settings 250 strada

Ducati recommends Viton (DuPont) or FPM quality for these O-rings, a chemically stable rubber usable at very high temperatures. Some sorts of silicone might not be 100% resistant against hot engine oil, or the additives.

Re: 175TS in UK

Finished all the wiring and connected battery up last weekend. Everything works but doesn't charge. Alternator makes electricity, at least enough to light an H3 bulb connected across to earth from each wire. But doesn't seem to suit the new Reg-Rec unit. Unless I have any new ideas, I'll be orderin...

Re: Spark Plug Length on 350

Hi, whenever I have seen this solution for a plug thread repair, it had more or less failed. Always caused trouble like loosening, not gas-tight, etc. In the past i succeded using the following inserts, which moreover do not reduce the plug's reach by a too large amount, or even at all: http://www.t...

Re: 175TS in UK

Best working for me allways have been the bonded seals https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonded_seal. They work on rough surfaces, are reusable, do not sag, are even pressure-tight and available with an inner or outer seal, in metric and imperial dimensions.

Re: Regulator/rectifier 250 strada

AFAIK the 250 Strada (as well as the 350 Forza/Vento) have 12 Volt/2 phase systems, with 3 wires coming from the alternator. If so with your bikes, any 12V-2phase regulator-rectifier will fit, like those for the DUCATI parallel twins, early bevel twins, Pantah 500 etc. Also the Saprisa R-R used in v...
