Question about 2002 Ducati 998 S
The dealer tech told me he couldn't balance the throttle bodies on my 2002 998 because the throttle linkage was worn. He didn't go into details
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?,,,
