Re: Narrowcase head bearings

Seriously, you made it look easy, and that's the sign of a true craftsman. I am impressed. The result is beautiful.

Thanks for sharing that.

Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

Thank you gentlemen, I saw a recent post by Jon Pegler, ( 7-23-2018) where he cites that Ducati engine #'s starting with 114,115,116 , are Spanish built motors. Thank you, I can now lay to rest my uncertainty about my little 250's motor. However, since I last inquired into this issue as to just what...

Re: Prices in Australia

In my non-professional opinion the price is currently a little on the high side for today's market, at least for now (2018) as you might still be able to get a rough condition round case 750 GT rider at that price. With the lack of bidding I think many people agree with me. Still though, I think tha...

250 narrowcase rear axle orientation info needed

I know, horizontal.... But I did not pay attention when I took the old bearings out. I am getting ready to put in a new bearing on the brake drum side of the rear hub. Between the bearings the axle which is shouldered becomes captive. I just realized that the axle is about 9mm longer (0.325 inches) ...

Re: Gray Cables?

I've never seen gray cables on a single, but I do use scooter cables when they fit.

Re: Shopping for front and rear tires

Does anyone know of a US distributor for ME22 tires?

It does not bode well for an American when every website the search engine returns is using the spelling "tyre".

I know they won't break in shipment, but the expense of the shipping could be as much as the tires.

Shopping for front and rear tires

I need a new set of 2.75-18 tires for my 250 narrow case, both front and rear. I'm located in the US. Nine out of 10 online ads I see in 2.75-18 tires are for dual purpose front/rear tires. The one exception I see is for an Avon Street Runner front tire. I'm looking for advice: Should I go with an A...
