Cleaning an air filter

I have an ITG Performance filter that I am using in my 748. With the pollen season upon us I'd like to clean out the runners and airbox as well as cleaning the air filter itself. I know I can wash the filter with water and a little soap and allow it to dry then add some oil to the filter before reinstalling. Are all filter oils the same even though there are different types of filters on the market? Should I look for something from ITG specifically? Do I soak the filter or apply a light coating?

I just cleaned the filter on my Kawi last weekend...followed the instructions from the service manual: 1. Remove Filter 2. Remove loose dirt with compressed air 3. Rinse filter in solvent a few times 4. Squeeze dry, dry with compressed air 5. Saturate a paper towel with 30W oil, and lightly tap oil onto foam side of filter. The solvent insures the old oil comes out with the dirt. The new coating of oil is VERY light..

Hi i removed my carb 2 clean it out on my 04plate gilera runner vx125 i refitted it and it's started vibrating and been very loud every time i wind it on. Could someone help me please. Thanks


The only thing that comes to mind, as you say " is very loud when you wind it on". Check to make sure the carby is connected to the air box, air filter properly, this loud noise you are hearing is probley air intake leak. check your air filter system.
I have never heard of such problems, ' it's started vibrating and been very loud every time i wind it on.' Coming from removing and cleaning out a carby? Just look things over carefully, you will spot the problem im sure.
Good luck

2000 ducati 748 running rough


I never heard that one, you should be able to see inside the tank and see if it is rusting or all gunked up. Pull the lines off and see if they run free and clean, change the filter, I would check the rubber lines to the fuel pump, they may be leaking air, vacuum assisted. Check the spark plugs. I had trouble with the champions, so I went and got Autolite 4163 plugs, they worked ten times better. 2002 S4 1999 750

Replacing 748 airbox


I planning to replace the airbox on my 748 with another one. I want to estimate how difficult it will be: I know I need to remove the tank and the airbox runners but will the box then get out easily?he airbox will come off pretty easy you have to pulle off the breatherhose from under the airbox, it goes behind the rear cylinder. also, the funnels on the injectors need to be taken off. I am not sure what kind of funnels there are on a 748 compared to a 996, but you on a 996, you only have to twist them for a 1/4 turn, no more, and then pull, pretty hard, to get them off.,,,

748 dies 15 minutes into ride


mine did exactly the same, its draining the battery and dukes wont run if the battery is drained. the battery will recover itself when not running therefore will start, but will soon use what little power is left in the battery then die. all u need is a regulator rectifier, its a little black box under the seat and takes 2mins 2 change, should work, if not, get a new altinator. start the bike up, and connect a voltage reader from eack battery terminal, should read 13, mine was reading 10.5, changed the reg rec and all is good. give it a try, hopes this helps

748 dies 15 minutes into ride


as soon as I got down here the bike started dying about 15 to 20 minutes into a ride. This bike has never given me a single problem prior to moving. It seems like something electrical to me but I really have no idea where to begin. I'm guessing (wild shot in the air here) that some component is getting hot and failing. I could walk downstairs and start it up now and it would start fine and then fifteen minutes later it will die and not start until it has cooled down and sat for a bit. This has happened four times now. I keep it in the neighborhood since I am expecting it to shut down and I end up pushing it home. I've drained the gas and replaced it checked all of the connectors I could get my hands onto. I had some crud on the positive terminal that I could see glowing, so I cleaned all of that up. I'm planning to tear the engine down soon anyways, but I'd like to know what is causing this before I get started. If anyone has experienced this, I would appreciate any info. Thanks guys. Relevant Info: 1998 748 ~20k miles Sil 1/2 system, ITG filter, DP chip,You're throwing darts instead of troubleshooting. When the bike is dead, begin the diagnosis by determining which of the three required elements are missing; i.e., air, gas, or spark. Once you determine this, then systematically trace upstream from the engine, using a good shop manual which describes the systems. Most manuals, like Haynes or Clymers, have a troubleshooting section which may help you once the missing element is identified.,,,
