20 Most Recent 1977 Ducati 900 SD Darmah Questions & Answers

Way back in the eighties when I had a Darmah I fitted a small rack off a BMW K-series on the ducktail. It wasn't huge but it allowed me to carry stuff and tie it down and so on. Don't know if that helps but maybe a wrecker has an old K?,,

Check the timing by removing the covers and bringing the engine around by hand to the marks at the top of the cams, then peek through the glass, it should be on it's mark. Or better yet, it has to be on it's mark. The carbs have no adj, except for the amount of air going in. What happened to the bike to make it change? Move to a different elevation? Change air filter? Change exhaust? In order to change the way it runs, you will need to jet it. Does it have Mikunis? Get a kit from Dyno-tune, they work great, and they are adj. You can find them on Ebay, I tried the factory setting jets, didn't work, got the dyno-tune kit, worked great. And, depending on the milage, when were the valves done last? That could be the problem right there.

Clearance issues aside, you need the proper mounts. If they make them, they will work, aside from tank clearance issues. If they don't make the proper kit, just don't do it. Handlebars are not something to experiment with when you're traveling down the highway at 60+ mph. Ever had a simple grip come off? Not fun, trust me.

Find out with your meter where the high amp draw is coming from and why.

The turn- bank sensor may think you have wrecked or just tipped over the bike. It may need to be replaced. Have you had to lay it down lately? Usually they reset after being turned on again after a lay down. It might not be resetting. Good Luck with that one.

You may likely have to program a new key as it has a chip. The SBB key programmer on Ebay is great for cars but not sure about bikes but perhaps! Make sure your model is available in the indications given by the SBB programmer site on Ebay.
