Re: Bronco 125 No Spark Issues

Hi Mike, The points and the condenser are physically next to each other and electrically connected together under the points cover. The wire going to the condenser is also going to the points. How did you assess that you had one spark and then no more? I personally find it hard to see the spark in d...

Re: Bronco 125 No Spark Issues

HT is a reference to the High Tension (high voltage) terminal of the coil: the fat wire that leads to the spark plug. The points along with the condenser are under a metal disk on the side of the engine, but don’t mess with them yet unless you have a timing disc as the points open and close in a cri...

Any phpBB experts out there?

I've lost my ability to log in as an administrator.

Is phpBB in any user's wheelhouse?

Re: Rewiring my 1966 Mk 3 NC

I agree Hans,

I was merely trying to point out why there are two styles is switches and which one was needed.

Another “plus” that comes with using the NO switch and DC system is that it’s possible to use LED taillights (brighter, more robust and uses less power than incandescent light bulbs).

Re: Rewiring my 1966 Mk 3 NC

“I need an “ordinary” one that is off until the brake pedal is depressed and it turns on.” Yes, i think you are correct. You need a Normally Open or NO switch. It’s unclear which type the Ducati Vintage Store is selling on their site. I believe the original switches we see on our Ducatis were one of...

Four Mach 1's?

What a beautiful sight!

It's difficult to find one, much less four.

Re: 250 Silentium

perhaps a heat gun directed on the cone will expand it. Of course, I would watch closely to make sure the chrome is not being damaged unless you plan to re-chrome it anyway. A shot or aerokroil into the junction every now and then during the process might help too. Probably too much of a PITA would ...

Magneto ID?

https://www.ebay.de/itm/194500143481

A friend of mine in Germany is selling this magneto but doesn’t know what model/engine it’s for.

Does anyone recognize it?

Thanks

Re: Help required identifying parts for 250 Mk3 project

What Country are you in? The MK3 generally came to the US with “western” style handlebars. Many people prefer the clip-ons which are getting difficult to source (including short headlight stanchions and a smooth triple tree top clamp. I believe the MK3 used the standard kick start lever and brake pe...
