Question about 2006 Ducati ST3 Abs

1 Answer

ST3 Q&A owners?

Still looking at the ST3. Maybe you owners could answer some questions. 1. Is that tank steel - will it hold a magnetic bag? 2. What mileage do you get when touring, not thrashing? 3. What is the real fuel tank capacity - full to fumes? 4. What are the recommended service intervals? 5. How expensive has dealer service actually been? Thanks for your anticipated replies.

    Canadian owner. The tank is steel and I use a magnetic bag. I can get about 300 kms. on a full tank of gas. The manual said 21 litres but I usually pump in about 19 191/2. Recommended service intervals every 12000 km. Parts and labour just under $1000 can. Parts shims and timing belts.

1. Is that tank steel - will it hold a magnetic bag? Steel - I use a bag that mounts to the fuel filler and does not touch the tank. 2. What mileage do you get when touring, not thrashing? City, low light comes on at 125 miles (stop start 20 mile commute) takes 4.0-4.2 gals each fill. Highway, light comes on 150-170 miles, same fill. 3. What is the real fuel tank capacity - full to fumes? Never experimented with it. Book says just over 5, I have never put more than 4.7 in it. 4. What are the recommended service intervals? 600 mile and then every 6000 5. How expensive has dealer service actually been? 600 about $320, 6000 about $600 depending on work 6. Fun factor? Lots

How do I remove the seat on an 84 Honda Sabre motorcycle


I have an 85 Sabre and was looking for an answer to this as well. I read the daniels solution. Not sure what Mr. Daniels is smokin but was he dead wrong. First, the helmet lock has nothing at all to do with this procedure. Why he thinks that is beyond me. Also, there is no "lever on the frame" to push forward.

So, after tugging a little here and there on my seat, I stumbled on the procedure. Here it is: 1) Remove the side covers off of each side of the bike. They are only held in place by grommets at 3 locations per side. A small tug at each of the 3 positions will remove them. 2) You will now be able to see a bolt on each side of the bike that secures the seat. Remove them. 3) Now it's technique time. The seat is now only held in place by a plastic tab and a steel tab. The plastic tab is part of the seat bottom at the front of the seat. The steel tab is on the frame of the bike. That steel tab goes into a slot on the underside of the seat. So here we go. Grab the back edge of the seat and firmly pull it rearward and slightly upward at the same time. That will disengage the molded slot on the underside of the seat from the steel tab on the frame. Once the seat has been disengaged from the steel tab, you can angle the seat upward. Once the seat is angled upward about 30 degrees, pull the seat in a rearward direction to disengage the plastic tab on the underside of the seat from the frame of the bike.

Since the air cleaner on a Sabre is underneath the fuel tank, all Sabre owners who do their own maintenace have to know how to remove the seat. One of the fuel tank bolts is hidden under the seat, The other two are on the front sides of the tank.
