  1. Overdue service interval‏ and wet clutch fix

    Sport Classic
    Thanks! Looks like I was just 6 lbs short... ;) I should add that the comfort I got from attempting this was that the bolts only hold on the retainer plate, they don't take the load of the primary gear. The gear rides on it's own bearing and transfers torque to the clutch by the springs. If...
  2. Overdue service interval‏ and wet clutch fix

    Sport Classic
    I would love to get up there.... My brother lives in Seattle and rides now (BMW....blech...haha) and we have been talking a lot about riding in the NW.
  3. Overdue service interval‏ and wet clutch fix

    Sport Classic
    BTW - Here is the current look of the bike, this is unchanged from the street, just minus the light covers:
  4. Overdue service interval‏ and wet clutch fix

    Sport Classic
    Hello ducati.ms, long time no see. Thought I'd give a little update. I'm still rolling around on my early release '07 GT1000 and have about 72,000 miles on it. I've done all the service on this bike myself since the first break in service and it's been a great bike. I basically skipped the...
  5. Anyone NOT Running a Steering Damper on Their GT1000?

    Sport Classic
    I've had a damper, upgraded wheels, and upgraded forks for a long time now, but here's my theory on the tankslapper issue: If you are running stock forks and weigh over 150 lbs your preload is probably too soft and the forks are too low in the travel for most of your riding. Get your...
  6. burning taillight bulbs...

    Sport Classic
    If anyone is looking for an LED bulb that fits in the stock Sport Classic tailight housing (or any other housing that canonly fit standard shapped bulbs...) I have been using this one for a couple years now. It's "super bright" ;) and is holding up great: 1157 LED Bulb - Dual Intensity 45 SMD...
  7. Italian aluminum tank work…

    Sport Classic
    hahah...That makes WAY more sense! Guess I'm spoiled by all these newfangled bikes and their fancy vent hose routing.
  8. how is everybody doing ??

    Sport Classic
    Hello! hello... hello... Looks like most of the original gang is still around. I still ride every chance I get and looking forward to a nice winter riding season here in Phoenix. Really wish I could have made the Vancouver meet-up this year, maybe next time.
  9. Blow Outs and Flats

    Sport Classic
    Sorry in advance, hoping not to derail the thread topic (I can't vote because I've had sealed/tubless spoked wheels for about 40,000 miles), but wanted to point out a couple things about my tubeless adventure. I won't get into the details, there are a couple write-ups about converting wheels on...
  10. 60,000 miles

    Sport Classic
    Right on! I just went out to check my GT ...66,044 miles so far. Love this thing. I ride it pretty hard some days, take it easy others...no matter what it keeps on ticking. I do all my own maintenance, so even though the valve guides have been very loose since about 20,000 miles I keep the...
  11. Retro styled billet aluminum exhaust flanges

    Sport Classic
    I put some retro looking flanges on my bikek when doing the spaghetti headers about 2 years ago...
  12. Sport Classics in Vancouver Canada, August 4-6, 2012

    Sport Classic
    Gawd I want in on this ride. I will be focusing my sights on the dates and logistics. If I can get the time, I will be there.
  13. Blingy Blinkers

    Sport Classic
    Nice work on those mounts! The Kellermans are high quality stuff also.
  14. Upside down GT1000 handlebars?

    Sport Classic
    Haha...I guess I deserve that. Need to get my body position more over the front, the Sport Classics I've ridden with clip on handlebars seem to handle much better than my GT, even though my bars are much lower than stock. They are also aluminum, which I happen to like. Lighter bike, different...
  15. Upside down GT1000 handlebars?

    Sport Classic
    I've been thinking of doing M-bars for a while...Anyone know of any alloy ones available? Haven't been able to find them. Need more weight over the front!
  16. gt front fender measurements

    Sport Classic
    Another idea...what I did: I took a Monster fender, cut the plastic legs off, and added mounts so I could mount it using the stock GT fender mounts. I like the Monster fenders because they are a bit more narrow and form fitting than the GT fender. Plus they should be cheap...mine was free...
  17. Sport Classics in Vancouver Canada, August 4-6, 2012

    Sport Classic
    You Canadians are weird (and I grew up in Alaska, so I know weird...). Muzzman - If you have one of these setups in your basement I'm staying far away- :D "Canadian takes over seven years to dig out basement using R/C construction equipment": (Just fast forward to ~14:30 to get an idea of...
  18. Saturday morning comics...

    Sport Classic
    Just something I drew up over coffee this morning.... "The Hypochondriac biker"...ha!
  19. Sport Classics in Vancouver Canada, August 4-6, 2012

    Sport Classic
    I am so wanting to make this meet up and August is better than July for me for sure. Still not guaranteed, but I am dreaming of a truck or van loaded with Ducatis and making a beeline from Phoenix to northern California for a rendevous with SoCal folks to make rolling thunder into Canada. Maybe...
