General Discussion / MH900 Current US Market?
« Last post by DucatMH on May 02, 2017, 12:52:34 PM »
Getting ready to officially post up my MH on Cycletrader in the coming week or so. Currently at the dealer getting all the fluids changed out and a general check up to make sure she's all set for sale. Mileage is 4,204.  I have the stand, plaque and t-shirt.  It will be in almost 100% stock form, the  only thing that won't be OE but will come with the bike are the OE Tires and OE tank. I recently replaced the cheap plastic fuel line disconnects with nice metal connections. It has brand new tires and the California Cycleworks tank/battery relocation. There is some minor "bubbling" of the paint on the engine cover (stator side) but no flaking. The top triple has a few blemishes from age. A little "yellowing" of the fins on the heads. No leaks. I don't think I am missing any critical details overall in very good condition for a bike that is 16 years old with 4K miles.

Does anyone have a thought on the current US Market value? I'm not irrational/delusional and know that it is not a $20K bike. I was thinking $15-16K would get it sold. Feedback would be appreciated.
OK, I'm in for a new set of fork caps.
BTW, what is the size of the spanner used to unloosen the OEM fork caps?
Scottsdale, AZ

Found one - 28 USD.

I would take it to a metal smith...a silversmith to hear what they would suggest.
Looks like it's etched.  Good Luck.
General Discussion / plaque restoration - please help

a friend of mine has a brand new MH900e. we recently un-crated the bike and found that the plaque that came with the bike is damaged. it appears there was humidity which caused oxidation or something

where can I get this plaque restored?

I checked with Ducati NA and they are unable to produce or replace the original plaque
 I would be very interested if someone could make a T shirt like the original for    #1215.

General Tips and Advice / 46 mm Rear Wheel Nut Tool - Cheap
« Last post by L4V 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.
Electrical / Re: Instrument Panel
« Last post by L4V on April 26, 2017, 08:59:55 AM »
Anyone know how to break the code WRT the instrument panel?
Mine will not respond to instructions listed in the manual.
It is stuck on KPH, cannot change the time, etc.
I have pulled the forward most 30 amp fuse and reinstalled, but no change.
Thank you for any information.

Thank you, Dave.  Very good info.
I recently purchased a 9 mile MH from the original owner.  It was on consignment with an Audi dealership in Nevada.
The dealership had a local Ducati service dealer perform over $1,000 worth of work on the bike.
New belts, oil/filter, brake fluid, chain clean/lube, replaced a couple of cracked/broken fuel fittings, etc., etc.
I will take note of this starter issue.
Best regards,
Don R.
Scottsdale, AZ
PS The only issue with this MH now is that the instrument panel does not respond to the instructions listed in the manual.  I do have tach, total miles, and trip miles.  Cannot change KPH to MPH, however.
Very frustrating.
