Hi From Cheshire

  1. Ric Davies. 59 (in Spring_Ducati.jpg 2019). I have a 1995 916 that I bought in 1996 after hearing my riding instructor's 888 fire up in an empty garage, which was amazing. The 916 has obiligatory Termignoni for extra aural pleasure. Twelve years later (2008) I added a 2002 ST4s; basically a 996 in Touring clothes, because a) my wrists and back were hurting on the 916 and b) I wanted to take my Advanced Rider test, which I passed. The 916 still fires up first time, every time. The ST4s not so. I am hoping that replacement earth & starter leads from Exact will sort that out, or else it's future is uncertain. I am a fairweather biker so when the weather is nice the bike has to work. Most of the time I drive either an Audi S6 (5.2, V10) or Jag XKR (4.0,V8).

    The Exact cables did the trick for me when I put them on my ST4.

    You’ll be pleased with them. Starts straight off the merest touch of the button.

  16. Welcome Ric from another 1960 babe, great bikes (and cars):upyeah:
  17. Welcome Rik, I was put off the ST4s because of the alarm (was thought to be problematic back in the day), that may be the source of your evils?
  18. You could be right. I have to watch out for the 15 second rule. And the "no sidestand" rule. There may be others?
