Hey Guys,

The steeringhead excentric is hold by two bolts with the circlips.
But there is another (special) bolt. above them (779.1.060.1A)
(looks like the same ones are used for the ignitionlock)

How do you remove these bolts (they have no head)

More info ....what model ???
I'm sorry, its about my 748. (but all the 916 models have this bolt)
If you google the oemnr.779.1.060.1A you'll directly get a lot of oem drawings.

On the right hand side of your steering-head there are two bolts that hold your excenter.
And above the upper one thats the place where this screw is located.

779.1.060.1A is the locating pin to ensure the eccentric is located correctly. It should have a hex head.
Yes is has a hexhead when new.

But is is the same as the two bolts of your ignitionlock.
So you fasten the bolt, and you must do a sort of overtightening?
So the hex head will brake (they suppose to do so!)

So these bolts are not supposed to turn them out?

The special bolt is not a security type/shear head, it should be able to be removed
and reused.

Thnks Brian,

Then I think mine is broken, but I'm sure it's not ordinairy metal.
Looks more like aluminium.
But why do they call it "Special Screw"?
Have you seen the price $ 16.-
It has to be a special screw otherwise it's made of Gold!

That appears to be the same sort of bolt that's on the fork tip of my swing arm (2005 999 swinger). It's used for axle limiting. I bought 2 new ones after I had my swinger powder coated but never installed them. You use the allen head to install the screw than break it off so it's flush with the swinger end.....odd....I was told you need to use some sort of extractor bit to back it out. I just left the old ones in.

Quote from BAT FINK: Ok somebody has replaced the screw with the wrong type.
I should look like this. oh it's M12x1 by the way.


This is what the OEM catalogue says:

Speciale screw, Inbus, M12x1
For Excenterklemmung the rotatable steering head inserts
SW6
Ltotal: 32
Pin diameter: 8
The aluminum bolt is a shear bolt.
Length turned 20

Older, modified or original Ducati spare Nr. alternative spelling of the original Ducati ET Number: 779.1.132.1A

So it should be original.

You'll need to drill it and use a screw extractor to get it out.
Looking at the two photos yes i would agree, but all the ones i have come
across have had the item in the second photo.
i carnt understand why some one would use a shear head fitting when the
part needs to be removed for adjustment.
The thing is now you have to remove it to sort what ever you are doing.
