Re: Turning over but not starting.

Well done in finding the problem, you had a feeling it could have been a wiring problem.
I'm surprised though a fuse didn't blow :eh:

Re: From 107 to 128

:x :cry: I got the Blade forks back from Roger yesterday - very happy. Fitted them just now and the lowers cracked on the right leg when I tightened the pinch bolts - now very unhappy. Yes I did use a torque wrench. I don't feel like it but I'll carry on fitting bits and pieces so that all I need t...

Re: Turning over but not starting.

Thanks for the replys guys, I load tested the battery and it's holding full voltage. I took it off charge yesterday with full volts. I think the battery is fine.

Re: Rev 3

Good work, it's a shame those pistons can't be seen once the engine is back together :)

It'll be interesting to see what you find regarding the OEM piston ring gaps :eh:

Re: Well you asked for another Ducati build

thanks for the votes on the The 2020 Forum Awards Ceremony guys! They say a build is never finished… in some ways true! I am still finding little jobs to do like making some frame bungs as none came with the bike… I am on the lookout for the next project, I will keep this thread going as I feel I a...

Re: Cold starting issue

I'm pleased to say this was just down to the fact that Halford's had sold me a dodgy battery. I should've taken it straight back when found that it was discharged when got it home after buying it back in January (and also because it was labelled Activation Date July 2019!). Took it back today, they...
