    Can't think what it is. There's nothing like that at either the steering head nor the front forks.

    Pretty sure its item 1 - 0691.37.020 - "Special Washer", it sits on top of the frame when the top yoke is in place.





    Good Luck

    I'm not so sure Frank. The "special washer" isn't flat.


    I remember it as being cup-shaped, as a sort of seal to help keep out dirt and water.

    Default Update March 2015. Nearly ready for the road. Help and advice needed

    Well its almost ready for an mot


    It fired up first time (once the fuel got through)


    The seat has been covered


    The brake discs and calipers have been painted and are waiting to be assembled


    One thing I need is a speedo cable


    The one I have is too short


    As I have fitted a speedo from a monster, it is higher and has the same connection at the speedo as it has at the wheel


    The question I have is this: are speedo cables generally the same connection type at the wheel, no matter which manufacturer? And I mean generally (This is a 1991 bike)


    Thanks

    That's been a long time coming. Good to hear that you're nearly there.
    The speedo connectors are not all the same, although I suspect most Italian ones will be. Carrot Cycles and Venhill Cables can make custom speedo and revcounter cables to order.
    Incidentally, you don't need a working speedo for the MoT.

    Default Advice wanted. Anyone in the Leeds area able to help?

    As Derek said, its been a long time coming


    Just now getting to the later stages of the build and there are a few things I am not sure of


    Is there anyone in the Leeds area able to help?


    I don't need any work doing but having someone look it over to see any potential problems would be good


    Could do with some pointers on various aspects, like where do the fuel line run

    Default Brake lines

    Been a long time since my last post

    Been ill and started new career so nothing done on the bike

    Time to rectify that

    As I have fitted a second brake caliper to the front, which year ss900 model braided hoses should I order?

    Thanks

    Default It will get finished, promise

    Well, this has been in the workshop for a long time.............. waiting

    And now the wait is over. It's going off to a Ducati guy to get the engine running correctly

    Once that's done, I'm on the case
