Question about 2001 Ducati 996
Hi I have been informed by the Duke mechanic
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.,,,
