Battery wire fabrication

I have never done wire fabrication before and I was wondering what tools do i need to DIY? Would shops like NAPA autoparts or Autozone provide wire fabrication services? What size of gauge do people recommend?

Ah.... battery cables. The gauge number is the size of the wire. The LARGER the gauge number, the SMALLER the wire is. And the reverse is true too. The smaller the wire, the less amperage (or power) that can flow through it before it melts down. The stock Ducati battery cables are 6 gauge. It's tricky to find 6-gauge cables anywhere as all the automotive parts stores *usually* carry either 4-gauge or 8-gauge. If you can't find 6, use the 4 as it's better to have a slightly too large wire then a slightly too small wire. If you're trying to replace the positive cable pictured in the first pic.... I think I have a spare one if you want. It's used, but likely in better shape then what you've got. Send me a personal message and we'll discuss if you want that part.

My brakes are shot and i need to know how much for total replacement


You can get fairly common prices for parts from the parts store but labor can vary from shop to shop. Try pricing parts online like www.autozone.com or napa or advance autoparts. That way you can get a idea of what shops are overcharging for parts.

My car won't crank. Battery is good. Lights


Have you cheked the relay? If it is fine you should have your battery tested at an autoparts shop, Napa for instance. Finally or before you go to parts place raise front of vehicle. Make sure it is properly supported. Test if voltage is coming to starter with a meter. You will need an assistant for this. My past expeience would indicate a weak battery.

Replacement or rear struts


you can do this your self. you do need a special tool but you can rent this tool at a napa or oreillys it's called a coil spring compression tool. you will get your money back when you return it. remember there is an alignment issue that you will face. but if you mark the bottom of the strut where the bolts are just replace them and tighten them in the same position. i would still recommend you take it to a shop for alignment if you have any difficulty with it not driving straightthe struts themselves should be about 50-75 dollars apiece. hope this helps. please rate this solution. thanks
