Hmm strange. Maybe a quick squirt of penetrating oil and a rubber mallet assist. Never had that issue.
Penetrating oil without the mallet did it. Thanks. I love this thing. I just wish it had the fast by ferracci pipes like on the 99. The st4 is really a great bike. I felt a little bad for the person I bought it from. He really felt sad letting go of it. He was just riding his 749 more.
But I finally own a Ducati.
Bill, when I get a good picture, I'll post it. We plan on going up to TN or NC when it gets a little warmer.

I had this problem with my '98 ST2, as I never had a passenger the first 2-3 years that I owned the bike. The one side I had to use a penetrating oil and tap it back and forth. The other was so bad that I had to remove the footpeg from the bracket. With both sides, the little ball that rests on the spring had gotten rusty. I had to take some sandpaper to the one to clean it up. Since then, I try to put a couple of drops of oil on them and work it in at least once a year.
