After a long hiatus from Ducati I have returned and just purchased a 900SS/FE #103. I am in the St Louis area. Question, are there any electrical components that would be worth carrying along on rides as back up spares? I am a pretty good wrench so would be able to quickly diagnos any problems, but without the parts I dont want to end up dead in the water. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

FE is supposed to be pretty solid electrically (3 phase alternator)....if youre worried, maybe hook up a small voltmeter ; something like the one desmotimes sells.
the powerlet starter wire upgrade (29.95) wouldnt hurt either :)

spares to carry.....

greetings Zoomy186,

I'm here in Richmond Heights with a '96 900 SS/SP. Extra spare fuses can save you from pushing or walking. I would be glad to get together and show you some of the finer points of supersports. Looks really hot Saturday!

chow,
Fred

Thanks for the info

Fuses will definitely be on board. I am thinking about getting some spare ignitors as well. I would definitely like to get together, perhaps for a ride. I am new to the area and keep going back to the same roads down south around Lee May Ferry Road. I will be out of town this week but will contact you via the forum when I return. Thanks, Mark

In 37k all I've ever needed was a can of fix-a-flat away from home. I have never had an electrical problem with my 96 900ss/sp (always keep a fully charged battery so you don't over stress the system). With many people having problems with the slave cylinder, I bought a spare rubber seal for mine many years ago, but have never needed it. You have a great bike, one of the all time fun bikes to ride. I enjoy mine over my 998. I live in University City, hope to see you guys on the road!

I always carry a bottle opener, a pack of Lucky Strikes and a rubber. Never used any of them, but I feel much cooler.:D:D
