Re: What killed my CDI coil assembly?

Well, until you've had at least two fail in similar circumstances :D , Jordan, the betting would have to be on it being simply 'a faulty component from new' in the unit - i.e. nothing necessarily connected (ha, ha) to your particular circumstance ... Craig, waiting for news of a second failure .... ...

Re: replace instrument holder 350 vento?

Jon may be able to help you out. Otherwise, I suspect you're going to have to go second-hand, from Spain. The good news is that they were used on other Mototrans bikes - Forza, and I think Strada and the 500 Twins. Try the search words, 'Soporte relojes Ducati'. That gives this,for example; https://...

Re: Mototrans snail swing arm seized

Both of your Mototrans machines have the same swinging arm adjustment as the 860GT and the Darmah V twins, so a look at a manual for one of those bikes will help you with the swinging arm. Thanks Jon. Didn't know the Strada/Forza used those. Learning something every day ... :D - @ Dave: Long time s...

Re: Mototrans snail swing arm seized

Hi Dave and welcome to the Forum, Jon Pegler is the Mototrans specialist on here, and hopefully he'll be along soon. In the meanwhile (and bearing in mind that anything I say, Jon may later correct ...) I have two question: firstly, is there a manual I can buy that covers Mototrans Ducatis, includin...

Re: chain drive sprocket play

Sounds like wear in the splines, Mike. Shouldn't be there. Take the sprocket off, and have a close look at the splining on the shaft.

Hopefully, however, the wear will be on the sprocket. If so, best change it.

If it's on the shaft, there are fixes ...

Re: 450 Desmo Dellorto PHF32 Jetting

Hi Chris and welcome to the Forum.

As I''m sure you know the PHF32 wasn't fitted originally to the 450 Desmo. Your nearest 'best reference' is the 350 Vento. Try:

Idle jet: 50 or 55.

Atomiser: 265AB

Slide: 50/3

Needle: K3, middle slot.

Main: 135 or 140.

Re: Narrowcase crankcase screws

Reckon it was a factory control thing, Nigel, rather than a security measure - ?

I even HEARD the one on my SSD come off! Most bizarre - must have pinged the silencer.

I didn't stop ... :D

Re: First Ducati

I don't know the history of Ducati, but at that time, early mid 70s ... It wasn't a particularly happy time in Bologna. Things started well, with the widely publicized success at Imola in 1972 and the sales increase that followed - 1973 was the peak year for 750 production/sales. The factory was ex...

Re: First Ducati

Any idea what year that might be, Eldert? 1973 or 74?
