General Discussion / Found: New StainTune Mufflers
« on: June 08, 2017, 04:04:27 PM »
Howdy gents,
I just found a new set of MH900e StainTune mufflers locally, still in the sealed factory box, and the seller wants $2000.
I may make him an offer, but if not, is anyone else interested?
If no one is interested, might I get some idea of what to offer the seller?
Thank you.

General Discussion / Torque Values
« on: May 13, 2017, 12:35:45 PM »
Howdy gents,
Just finished installing a quick change carrier with a 41 tooth sprocket and a new chain.
I'm not sure if the ecentric hub bolt torque is the same for most Ducatis. 
Some forums say 22 ft/lbs. for the 916, 748, etc.
I can't seem to find the values in the manual.  Anyone have a clue?

General Tips and Advice / 46 mm Rear Wheel Nut Tool - Cheap
« on: April 26, 2017, 10:06:10 AM »
I've had this wrench since back in my VW days (40 yrs. ago).  It's a perfect fit for the Ducati rear wheel nut.  1/2" drive.
And cheap, too...$10 (USD)
I have used it on my 851 and 996S in years past...just used it again yesterday on the MH.
I'm guessing that it's available worldwide.

General Discussion / New Owner in Scottsdale, AZ
« on: April 23, 2017, 01:52:53 PM »
I guess I ought to introduce myself...a new owner as of last week.
Found #302 on an obscure For Sale site by a Nevada Audi Dealership.  I've been looking for several years, off and on, depending on my mood.
Been seeing them on eBay over the years...I just don't like the bidding/auction deal.
Finally, there it was.
A consignment bike...I do not know the original owner.
9 miles, mint and not one scratch/flaw, and completely serviced by a local Ducati guru (Irish Mike's, in Henderson, Nevada).  New everything that wears or drys out...except tires.
I'm not terribly uncomfortable on the bike...I'm 5' 10".
I looked for some clip-on adapters to raise the bars...not enough info, etc.
So I pulled off the bars and swapped the clamps - left to right - now the bars are almost horizontal and it's far more comfortable to ride.
Not sure if I want to install the larger tank as I'm only riding around town, etc.  But relocating the batteries is appealing...we'll see.
Finally broke the code on the instrument cluster.  No tach, speedo, or odo.  I noticed the clock was sitting at 0:00, so I read how to set it and, Bingo, now I have a tach, speedo, and odo.  However, it won't respond to my demands to change from kph to mph.  It will not respond to any more demands.
Any ideas?
Anyway, that's pretty much my story - so far.
Ride safely, all.

Frame and Suspension / Looking for different/new rear sprocket
« on: April 23, 2017, 01:36:06 PM »
Howdy gents,
I'm going to continue to ride my MH even though it had only 9 miles on it when it arrived,
So, I want to go up to 41T from 38T in the rear so that I'm not clutching so much off the line.
I'm thoroughly confused about what rear sprocket and from where.
Anyone have a line on an OEM 41T Ducati rear sprocket?
And yes, I have a new DID Gold 520 chain.
Oh, and I'm not all that interested in installing a quick change assy.
Thanks for any input.
Ride safely.

New owner as of April 11, 20117.
Where in God's name are there any bar risers?...clip-ons, etc.
I had FBF's on my 996S and they helped immensely.
If I'm going to ride and enjoy this MHE, I'll need a set.
Anyone out there in ether land with any info?
