Featured Newbie 1098, Bit Of A Project!

Discussion in 'Newbies Hangout' started by dannyplum, Sep 24, 2019.

  1. Hi all,

    Bought my first Ducati about a month ago and I would love to say it`s the best thing ever, but it needs some TLC and I`m yet to properly ride it. It was apparently the project bike of Snell Ducati Alton and had a lot of work done on it when new, fairings, clutch, hi comp pistons, exhaust blablabla.

    15k later and it`s running rough and stalling so it`s strip down and build up time. Here to get some advice and hopefully give some back in the process!

    And me, biker for 14 awesome years, currently on a 08 zzr1400, love a track day, cruise, whatever gets the wheels rolling!

    I`m sure I`ll have a tonne of questions and annoying posts along the way, but for now, just saying Hi...!
