Forgot about that. I've worked mostly with 650/750 Triumphs, and they use very different heads for single/twin carb models.

Looks like you might live close by.

2 carbs aren't too difficult to set up once you've done a few. I personally wouldn't go to all the trouble involved to swap heads.

Cities do that so they can write more red light tickets. Proper timing is 1 second for every 10 mph speed limit. 35 mph needs 3.5 second yellow. Check your state law on timing and use a stopwatch to...

Current Ducatis are all Euro 3 compliant world wide, and driveability SUCKS big time. It's pretty much SOP to have the ECU reflashed, and many dealers offer the service.

Anyone I'd agree to teach would have to be a competent bicycle rider to begin with. Combining teaching 2 wheel vehicle dynamics with mechanical operation at the same time can be catastrophic.

What you need is a heavy brass or lead hammer, not a steel one. The only tools I'll hit with a steel hammer are punches and chisels, and not always then. No sense in battering up a good impact tool.
