    This is what I have used for decades, throttle screw

    Since my first airhead (86 R80RT to my last airhead 1995 R100RT) I have used a throttle screw (item 26). They DO NOT LOCK the throttle, but apply enough friction to hold it in place. I adjust mine...

    Not all Ducati's have a dry clutch. My 900 Monster, with a dry clutch, sounded much louder than my 2007 F800S. If yours is so noisy that you are embarrassed, I would think that something else is...

    If it was running fine before, than something you did to it is causing the problem. I once had a similar experience on a Moto Guzzi. I had just put in new plugs, plus gave it a full tune up. When...
