Re: New to the forum and vintage Ducatis

Welcome to the forum. I don't know that DellOrtos are as troublesome as their reputation would lead you to believe, I've only found the SSI29 to be temperamental and a bit crude insomuch as the amount of adjustments you can make to it are few. Perhaps my slide or the carb body are too badly worn to ...

How to perform the kick start repair, with a poor attempt at humor!

Re: New 350 owner/help ID a 66

My 250 had an issue wherein the kick start was not engaging with the rachet. The short term kick-start solution for me was to tip the bike towards me as I stood on the bike's right hand side after which I would tip it back onto the center stand. This would give positive engagement for the subsequent...

Re: Ross Thompson Retired

Ross will be missed. I found out he would be retiring at the end of 2017 about 9 moths ago. I would have announced it but he was taking on no new work, just cleaning off his plate, so it was already too late to try and get something in to him Long ago I had bought a Mach 1 tank that looked good, but...

Re: Tech downloads not working?

I meant to take out just the images that CoolIris used.

What I will probably do is just create links to PDFs that people can download.


Whith the year ending I am swamped with bookkeeping. If you need something in the short-term just PM me.

Re: Tech downloads not working?

Let me know what link you clicked on that didn’t work... I took out picture files associated with the long ago defunct Cool Iris viewer so as to lower our file count and get the forum working again. (See the "We are back!" post under "Announcements".) If I inadvertently deleted a...

Re: Wiring stock 160 ignition?

On some Ducati singles that have lower-powered alternators, the brake light was wired "in series" with the ignition coil. The only thing that is problematic about this arrangement is that if and when the brake light bulb burns out or vibration breaks the brake light filament, the engine wi...

We are back!

Sorry for the interruption. As most of you know the forum has been down for upwards of a week. It's sudden crash was a mystery as no administrative work was occurring on either the forum software or the website. I worried that the web host moved us unannounced to a different server that was somehow ...
