Re: Ducati Falcon 50

Krupp

No help here, but man that is one cool looking little bike. I think I have some mention of it in one of the books I have at home and will look later and let you know. Would be great to see it restored.

Re: Old Ducati pics from back in the day

Davin too bad, I was hoping to live vicariously through those who traveled before us. But in that case I suggest that they are ripe for crafting our own interesting back stories. I'll go first http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af328/XRWilly/Classic%20Photos/1966ducatimonza250taken69.jpg Here is my...

Re: Tank Support Pads

Hi LS I don't know what others use, but I have wrapped a piece of 1 inch thick closed cell foam pad. It is medium density and came from an upholstery shop. I then secured it to the backbone with black zip ties. not anywhere near original but very functional. It is a force fit to push it up into the ...

Re: Headlamp removal

I've noticed that if the ring got deformed at some point, once forced on they can be tenacious. On the bottom there are two tabs sticking down, the one attached to the ring has a 90 degree bend in it and the one on the shell has a straight tab. I've put a suitable tool in between them and pried them...

Re: Oil leak

Hi Davin Make sure your oil level is not too high. DCT Bob pointed out that when he has seen this it was sometimes the result of a forgotten fuel shut off petcock and that raw gas had raised the level of the crankcase. If your engine is getting tired and has a fair amount of blow by it could contrib...

Re: Late desmo headlight questions

Hi Joe
In Ian Falloon's Standard catalog of Ducati Motorcycles, I find a 68 mk3 Desmo and a 71 desmo that could be the same bike you pictured. They both have what appears to be the same chromed headlight you have pictured.

Re: recommendations for the best exhaust nut tool

I sent a pm to Mike, the seller of the wrench pictured in Bob's post and linked in mine, and asked him to discuss how it could fit on both v-twin and Single exhaust nuts. This was before Ricks post made the communication moot. Though not really explaining he included the pertinent measurments he use...
