If you have time to help that is. Can you put the MV Agusta F4's exhaust pipes on a Ducati 748 Could it be done? I love the MV's quad-exhaust system but really am not a fan of the MV's looks - I preffer the Ducati's looks. I can't choose whether to get a MV Agusta F4 (1000cc) bike or a Ducati 848 - I love the Duc's looks and the fact that it has approximately 849cc (its true 1000cc may be too much for me to handle - especially as an everyday ride!). If I had it my way I'd get the Duc and wack those MV pipes out back - oh and those 190mm rear tyres (just for looks!). In all seriousness I really want to know the following: 1. Which will be a more civilized tool; i.e. which will be better to live with everyday? 2. Which bike will be easier to learn on (yes I know they both have way over 800cc, but still I wouldn't mind your opinion on this!). (When I say learn I mean learn to ride on because I have a younger brother who can learn using my new bike.). 3. Which of these two bikes can carry a passenger (I actually haven't seen the bikes yet because they are on order and have not arrived yet.). I really want to be able to take someone on the back of my bike every now and then. 4. Last but not least, if I got a Ducati 848 can I get those exhaust pipes on it! Thanks guys for reading and taking the time answering my post (if you really can be bothered!) - but please be bothered! haha. Thanks so much again for all your help. ,In all seriousness? 1. What do you mean - how do you intend to use the bike, commuting, weekend riding? 2. Neither bike is suitable to learn on. You are in SA. Neither of these bikes are LAMS compliant. 3. Either, but they won't like or thank you for it. 4. No. The MV has 4 cylinders, the Ducati has 2,,,

    the MV exhaust is designed for that bike, running it on another bike would be stupid, MV's run an exhaust flap which can be easily removed and is better,although the MV's run a computer system and maps need to be entered into it, normally when the MV's come in for service the new updated maps are tuned in..personally i work with MV's in the workshop and when they give trouble they give trouble..plenty of power but honestly i can't wait to get off them when i take them for test runs..

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

My yamaha R6-2008 is having a take off problem. please help?

Klacking noise? Any sort of mechanical metal to metal noise is no good. If the engine pulls fine once your in higher gears with no noise I would think that it is transmission/gear issues and not engine(piston/rod) issues. If the bike gets abused or stunted chances are the first couple of gears are bad.

I have a 2000 duc monster. I'm having a vapor lock issue, gas boiling, backfiring, acting like it's exhausted of fuel etc...I live in bfe Texas, I'm an alright mechanic but I need help on how...

Hi, Docwahn2 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel boiling in fuel line due to extremely high outside temperatures and unprotected fuel lines missing convoluted tubing cover routed too close to cylinders and or heads.
2. The gas cap is not venting properly.
3. Fuel tank vent line blocked, plugged, kinked, or smashed.

get the VIN number for the bike and ask the local yamaha dealer. (the VIN number has a code for the year in it) what was originally on it when new. and what can fit on it from the aftermarket products.

675 common problems

The only downside of owning a 675 is that you get depressed when you're not out riding. Sign up for a track day and let an instructor tell you about steering, braking, where to keep your eyes etc. It's a mindblowing experience. Have fun

996S fuel pump issues

it has quite all together. Does anyone have the schematic for the 99 996S so I could trouble shoot the system? Has anyone else experienced this? I have replaced the relay but dont think this was the problem from the beginning. Any help would be greatly appreciatedI had a problem with my fuel pump after I purchased my 2000 996S. Originally I thought it was the pump that was going out. But as tye1138 asked it's important to note if the pump is turning on and priming the system when you turn the key on. I removed the pump from the tank and checked it. Worked okay. After hours (and hours) of checking and re-checking the relays, fuses, grounds and wiring, it turned out to be the computer had died on me. I was lucky enough to know somebody who knew sombody who had a friend at a Duc shop who was willing to test out my computer and confirmed that it had died. I bought a used one off of flea bay and the problem was solved. It's easy enough to remove the computer and if you have somebody willing to test it then I would try that. Also check the relays located underneath the seat. Those can be tested but you'll need the service manual for the proper procedure. Hope it turns out better for you than it did for me!,,,

Unless you do the maint yourself I'd stay away from any duc for a long distance bike since I average about 20k miles a year on my bikes the thought of paying for the 12 k service on a duc leaves me cold. Triumph sprint as mentioned very capable bike, or even better something Japanese, the FJR is quite nice, shaft drive so no chain to deal with. Depends on what kind of distances you want to ride., ,,
