Unfortunately they take an age to make and would not be viable...
@Buzzer great work as always!
I love your crank trigger, but I am not sure why you need it. Did you completely delete the factory ECU? From your diagram looks like you use an aftermarket ignition module to provide spark and advance curve? Just curious as I had to build my own crank trigger for a 999. But I ended up running it off the alternator end of the crank and used a VR sensor. The standalone ECU could not make sense of the 42tooth timing gear Ducati uses…and from a software point of view running off crank speed was better for the trigger, but I believe your trigger on the layshaft could be used as a cam sensor in addition to my crank sensor. If you did use a standalone ignition would you mind providing some data on it? I imagine it might be useful for some other projects and might be a bit cheaper and less complicated than the full standalone ECU I use.
DREMEL! Can't beat it! Well done.One aspect of a build I like to get right is the throttle action... too quick and action and its jerky to ride and often heavy... too slow an action and it becomes two handfuls to fully open and I hate that...
I popped the cable on with the twin pull throttle of the Multistrada and it was just too quick and heavy... I needed to take 1mm off the diameter where the cables run. Of course you cant just pop it in the lathe as the cable boss prevents that... I looked at doing it in the milling machine and couldn't see any way of doing it... so I came up with this!
I dont know what I would do without it! its not a Dremel though... I broke three before buying a cheap copy off Amazon for a third of the price that has lasted a couple of years now!DREMEL! Can't beat it! Well done.
Oh man, I did that with a Moto Guzzi tank once. I was so devastated!I am So SO annoyed with myself… the tank has taken days to get to the right shape… I etch primed it… prefect… 2K primer… perfect… just needed flatting before the base coat. Unfortunately I went through to the bare metal on an edge… Not wanting to have to fill the gun with 2K again I used some 1K primer… As the base coat dried… the 1K primer reacted… lesson learned!
@Buzzer I know you have the cases vapor blasted. But I am curious about the finish you achieve on the motors, it’s stunning. It appears you polish the alternator and clutch covers, do you clear these? Do you paint the cases, cylinders and heads, or is that clear after vapor blasting? Thanks for all your tips.
