Question about 2002 Ducati 750 SS
I have conflicting info on the frequency of getting the valves reseated on these machines, some say 10k others say 25k...can anyone confirm the fact so I dont kill my bike?
Brent from New Zealand
Brent, valves don't need to be reseated unless they are worn, that will vary by mileage and use or abuse of the machine. I strongly suggest the purchase of a compression guage and start a log book, check compression of each cylinder at least every six months. Track the values in a log book, do it both 'dry' nothing injected into the cylinder and 'wet' a small squirt of light oil in the hole prior to attaching the guage. Do this with all plugs removed to prevent the engine from starting. Also while your in to the motor checking valve clearance will indicate wear over time. Depends on the make and model on how to adjust that clearance if at all.
