I'm running pretty much the same seat on mine. It's early Ducati 750 or 900SS. Have a look in my gallery.

I see quite a few sets of 34mm Mikuni flat slides from the Yamaha Banshee 350. I wonder how these would go on a 650 or 750 with a bit of work?

The top faring bracket is just a bar between the two sides. I machined up a sleeve and welded it in the middle and there's a small ball race in there. I drilled and tapped the top of the head stem bol ...

I machined up the nylon sleeve out of some bar stock in the lathe. It's pretty easy to machine providing your tooling is sharp.

I'll pull the bike out on the weekend and take some pics.

My seat was a 900SS reproduction. I think it's pretty much the same thing. A local Aussie fiberglas shop had a mold.

That tank looks very similar to mine except mine has the filler central.

Any idea what it came off?

I found mine at a swap meet. It's fiberglass and pretty old. There were no markings on it but ...

You might also look at a few other mods to gain some clearance. The main things that that use ...

Negative crank case pressure is good because it improves ring seal. That's one of the main power benifits. Rings are sealed against the cylinder walls by the combustion pressure getting in behind the ...

I believe you can pull it and plug it without removing all the other stuff. I just ripped it all out to save a bit of extra weight.
