Thanks for sharing this. Are these mirrors any good? Can you see behind you?

No problem. I have been looking at a lot of pictures of the brackets and it looks relatively easy to make.

The mounts are still available for the screen to attach to the fairing from Ducati. They are different and there are 3 types I was told. I have ordered some spares. I would suggest you get some of these.
There are fairing cap screws available from probolt. Very similar.
I used a drop of threadlock on mine.

Hi Simon,
That is good news. I didn't pay the full price. If the ex Spondon employee can make them, that would be great. I would love to get hold of the drawings!! I will try and get hold of Ian.

General Tips and Advice / Starter Motor

I thought I would share my starter motor blues with you all as it may help. Last year my MH began to have problems starting. It would become slower and slower until it finally refused to turn over.

The solenoid would click with no problems and there seemed plenty of power as lights would come on with no problems.

Guessing there may be a battery problem, I replaced with new batteries and cleaned up all connections and a new starter solenoid. Still no luck and the starter would not turn over.

I guessed that the brushes had worn out even though only 3500 miles on the clock. At the time the bike was still in Qatar and I don't have my UK workshop to hand so could not remove the starter myself plus I live in a apartment and nowhere to do some serious work on the bike.

Got the bike taken to the local dealership and diagnosis was the starter had burnt out and needs to be replaced. Left side engine cover had to be removed for access to the bolts to removed and they did the work.

New starter in and all working great now.

So what was wrong with the starter. I was going to throw it away, but decided to have a look inside and see.

Now I consider myself pretty good at mechanical stuff, rebuilt bike and car engines, built bikes, made my own parts etc.

I undid the cap bolts and as I pulled to the starter apart, oil poured out.......lots of oil and it's not meant to be there. A first for me!!!!

A quick check on the internet and guess what, it has happened to others. I cleaned everything up. The commutator was a bit marked so cleaned that with wet and dry. The brushes were ok. I put it all back together and connected to a 12 Volt battery and it spun up with no problems.

The fault was that the oil seal at the front of the starter had failed letting oil in, could be age, I don't know so I am going to get a brush kit for it and a new seal and I will have a spare starter which I will probably never need.

So if you have experienced the same starter issues as me, it may help if you remove the starter and check it before spending money on new batteries, cables, solenoid etc and rebuild your starter instead. Could save you some money!!

Hope my experience can help you out.

Thanks for the information. Yes Spondon going out of business was a great shame. The Hugger I received is great quality. I have a friend who owns Rolling Art Motorcycles near Swindon. He has made some parts for my other bikes so I will ask him to Make the bracket and he can make two, one for you as well. It won't be for a couple of months as I am in Qatar at the moment and returning to the UK March time. I found my Mh900e here and shipped it back to the UK. I will keep you updated.

Happy New Year to you all.

I need some help. I have just purchased a rear hugger from world of carbon here in the UK. Unfortunately they no longer provide the bracket so I am looking at getting one made or making myself. I have looked at images on the net and have an idea on the bracket mounting to the hugger but cannot find any pictures on how and where the bracket mounts to the swingarm.
Can anybody with one provide me with pictures and dimensions?

Really would appreciate it.

Hi Daren.
Thanks for the welcome. Yes it is a bit tricked out and I was very lucky to come across it. I even managed to repair the broken lug on the indicator using plumbing solvent, super glue, balsa wood and baking soda (I'm also an RC Jet modeller). This bike is a keeper. Had a 900ss in the past and regret selling that. I'm also a Triumph fan and have a Rocket 111, Thruxton 900SE, Sprint 955ST and a 1975 Trident T160V that I am restoring. My 21 year old daughter also rides and is after a Ducati Monster now after cutting her teeth on a Yamaha 600 Diversion. Your bike sound great especially in stock form. I will join as well. Look forward to chatting with you. I will keep an eye out for some Termis for you.

Hi All,

Just thought I would introduce myself as a new owner of MH900e  number 590. Always wanted one of these and now found one in Qatar, where I work, and this will be shipped back to the UK with me. Got all the bits as well cover, 2 keys, Plaque, Paddock stand, Boxed T-shirt, toolkit etc. She has got around 4000kms on the clock. Also fitted with Termignoni exhausts, The catalogue clutch cover,  Open belt covers. Ohlins rear shock plus a load of bite and pieces. I went and broke the rear left indicator and have now ordered a set from Germany, but found in the box a set of the catalogue indicators. I also have the original exhausts and other parts.

Looking forward to chatting with you all on this forum.
