In the last week;
Checked shims - two openers changed.
Changed fuel filter - hardest part was getting the pump out.
Drained oil and changed filter.
Removed heavy standard flywheel and installed lighter Nichols.
Changed pick-up coils with new Ducati parts. I bought them and hope it fixes the hiccups and steady revs.
Put everything back together and fill with oil - to half a window :-)
And it started - once I had added petrol to the empty tank.
Still have put side panels back on and fit new, sitting on the desk here, Woodcraft rear-sets.
Created space for new (to me) arrival tomorrow.

He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a pebble and rolling an ankle.

Rode to a friends house, stopped for fuel, the fuel light came on just as I got to town. I noticed the bike surges a bit at part throttle 4500-5500 but runs fine if I wick it a bit. This is not a problem for me, at some point I may check the action of the vacuum slides in that range. I got no flickering oil light, that was the important thing.

Do you use Sea Foam? If not do so. It calls for an oz per gallon. Keeps the carbs happy. I use less in my normal fill ups. Maybe an oz or two per tank. I don't measure that precisely. All the carb gum and sticky issues go away.

I walked out in the garage, gave the old SS and quick eye f**k and then hopped on the 1098 and went to work. Will probabaly do the same when I get home.

Cleaned/lubed+greased throttle cables and the throttle grip housing. Then reattached and adjusted them. Nice smooth snaps now. Tonight if I have time I'll change the cam belts or install the gas filler.

Question: Does Chris Kelley's cam belt change video apply to my '93 900? I just noticed he has one video generically titled cam belt chnge, one for the 999 I believe and another for a dual spark engine.

I only ask because I haven't found a c belt change guide specific to my '93. I don't have a Hayne's manual right now & a '91 workshop manual that doesn't cover the belt changes some reason. I think there may be a workshop manual for my year online that I have already been pointed to and will check tonight.

I reshimmed the transmission drive shaft. I had .45mm of end play, about .35 too much, now I am at .05 and reassembling the engine.

If this is the video you are talking about, then yes, it is for the '93 900. Just make sure all 3 marks on the cam belt pulleys line up with the marks on the covers or crankcase, and use the 5 and 6mm allen wrench tension adjustment method, and it will all go well. Not too hard really.

Well c/f parts are kind of a subjective thing HYPERR,everyone has their own opinion as to what exactly constitutes quality.

I can tell you that the gauge panel I have has a smooth glossy finish,there are no bubbles or pits in the resin,the carbon weave is evenly spaced and symmetrical and the slanted pattern of the weave is very pleasing to the eye,the panel itself is fairly thick and sturdy and has been CNC machined so the edges are square and precise,and as you can see in my pic the panel lines up perfectly with the dash lights and gauge mounts as though it was always meant to be there.

You really couldn't ask for more,so I guess I'd have to say that the overall quality is pretty darned good considering the price that I paid for it.

For what it's worth HYPERR,I've purchased quite a few name brand c/f parts for my bikes over the years that I paid a whole lot more for and sometimes came away disappointed because the quality,fit,and finish on a select few of those pieces wasn't even anywhere near as nice as it is on this cheaply priced Skur gauge panel.
