Re: Ducati 748 - Road to track/road

About £300 in parts (if it needs all 3 parts) and a couple of hours labour. Quite tempted to have a go myself but may let Cornerspeed do it, watch and learn how to do it next time. The compression of the engine may mean that it becomes a service part (or the bearing itself anyway). It would be an i...

Re: What do you want to vent about today?

Oh no Kiwi. Totally agree with gravel driveways also the fact the gravel also follows you onto the road as well causing problems for other motorist. Hope you and Jess are ok mate

Re: Ducati 748 - Road to track/road

If it's still stalling what's the fix? Higher idle speed perhaps?

Spray clutch failure seems a bit premature considering the hours/starts its had, is it up to the higher compression and possible advanced timing of the bigger engine?

Re: Ducati 748 - Road to track/road

Runs better low down and settings were out but still have the stalling issue. Also the sprag clutch is on the way out.
