Question about 2003 Ducati Monster 1000s i.e.
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.
