After having the valves done and belts replaced that my Throttle bodies can't be sync'd because of worn linkage see pic. I have looked around and haven't read of this happening often. Sounds like a rare problem. Anyone know of this happening? I can get the linkage rod but where it connects to the butterfly valve is worn or so im told , i get the bike back today and will check it out. If the linkage is stuffed i am thinking 2nd hand Throttle bodies as an option but am not sure about the interchangeability of the 916 748 996 bodies ,the 2nd hand bodies around are mostly 748 916 . Can these be used or am i waiting for a set of 996?,If he can't sync it because the linkage is worn - you need a new tech Ask him, og diy - use only one idle screw - on the TB's where the cable is attached. On the other TB - just remove the screw, and you will be fine After this - the spring will eliminate the slak on the linkage. Sync is a bit different - both airscrews in same position, and adjust the lenght on the linkage to your TB are in sync.,,,

HI i have a fuel injected yamaha r1 2008 and as it gets warmer it starts to fast idle and runs iraticly like the choke is on can any body advise?


Hi, Desmond and the usual suspects are:
1. Extremely lean fuel mixture.
2. Dirt, rust, water, or ethanol sludge in the fuel system.
3. Sticky throttle cables.
4. Multiple carburetors not in synchronization.
5. TPS sensor out of adjustment or faulty.
6. Wrong spark plugs for the type of service.
7. Throttle bodies not in synchronization (FI)
8. Faulty O2 sensor.
9. Clogged, stuck, or faulty IAC valve.
10. Aftermarket components not compatible with ECM.

Fuel leaking out of 2 hoses connected to the carb cant stop the fuel leak


Inspect the fuel inlet hose closely. If you notice a wet spot around the hose where it joins the carburetor fitting, or the hose has become swollen, soft, brittle or hard, replace the fuel hose and the small fuel filter inside the carburetor fitting. Install a new worm clamp to tighten the new fuel hose to the fitting. Use a Phillips screwdriver.

Check for a fuel leak around the accelerator-pump cover assembly. Some carburetor models come equipped with a diaphragm-accelerator pump on the side of the unit. If the cover screws have come loose, fuel will leak through the diaphragm and external cover. Look for a square cover on the side of the carburetor and tighten the cover mounting screws at each corner with a Phillips screwdriver.

Look around the gasket located between the carburetor upper body and the main, or lower body. This gasket may have worn out or the carburetor upper body mounting screws may have become loose, allowing fuel to leak outside the carburetor.

Ensure the upper body mounting screws are tight, if you found a leak. If they are tight, remove the clip holding the throttle linkage to the carburetor with a pair of needle-nose pliers and reposition the linkage to the side. The linkage allows the driver to operate the throttle plates in the carburetor through a cable when depressing the accelerator pedal. Unfasten the screws holding the carburetor upper body from the main body with a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. Remove the old gasket and install a new one.

Inspect around the bottom of the carburetor where it joins the intake manifold if no leaks were found around the gasket located between the carburetor upper body and the main, or lower body. If you find a wet spots or marks around the bottom of the carburetor, the base plate gasket is leaking. Remove the upper and main carburetor body using a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. Install a new base gasket and replace the carburetor assembly.

After complete dissassembly and cleaning of


Try taking the return spring out and give it about an additional one inch of length by gently stretching it out. Over time, the spring can loose some of its original tension.
Even the smallest debris particle can cause the throttle slide to hang up. If it isn't foreign matter causing it to stick, then there could be a ding or gouge in either the slide or the carburetor body. Take the slide out and put some blue machinists dye on it, then slide it up and down inside the carb - this will show you where any high spots are. Carefully remove the high spots with 1,500 grit wet or dry sandpaper.

Performance


or quarter mile times? I can't believe how little information you can find on this bike on the internet... Thanks in advanceThere used to be a neat site that had a bunch of cool Duke II information but I don't think its available any longer. I did print it out at one point and still have it tucked away somewhere in storage. If I can find it I could try and mail you a copy of all of the info. I can tell you that the information did include 0-60 time info and placed it at around 4.6 seconds in stock form. Although not quick/fast in a sportbike sense, it is a pretty good performer in the 0-80mph range where its thumper power, light weight, and precise handling all come together to create an awesome road machine for tight twisty backroads. Open road riding on flat highway or interstate is another story though, and pure torture on the Duke.,,,

Throttle body linkage worn?


other than to say he couldn't adjust it because one or the other would be off. Does this make sense? If so it appears Ducati doens't sell the the linkage separately only the complete throttle body assemby with a price tag of $2300 (up here). I did find a 2004 999s throttle body assembly on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DUCAT...3286.m20.l1116 Looks a little different from mine, but I thought the 999 and 998 are supposed to be the same motor. Can anyone tell me with 100% confidence that it will fit an function without significant modification? Or at least if the throttle linkage can be transplanted?,The linkages are different between a 998 and a 999. From what I can remember you can make them fit but with a hell of a lot of mods..... people who have done it may help. Also check out Gotham Cycle breakers in Florida, he had a write up between what models can be transplanted. (Dont have the link sorry) The linkage is worn????? Can you post a picture to show which part he thinks is worn please? By how much will they not sink? Is this on vacuum check or on CO check of each cylinder? Has he done a TPS reset on the setup? Does this guy have a DDS unit? (Basically a hand held computer to check the brains of the bike) Is this being tested with new spark plugs fitted?,,,
