Forks come in a set. Unless u can find salvaged parts from ebay. Diff bikes have diff diamensions. The forks from a pre 97, 97-99 and 2000 onwards are also different. Front brake calipers also have diff sizes. Then u have the different sizes of the front axle. Quite a number of us have done this conversion. Source for parts carefully.

Dropped by minerva to pick up fork seals for my GT1000 as my right fork is leaking.

 

No stock. Thought this is pretty standard wear & tear stuff... Anyway, at $207 for the fork seals, i'm thinking there should be OEM alternatives else where or online.

 

Where do i go for Ducati parts online? OEM or Original are fine.

You can try this site. Their shipping charges are steep though, may want to use Vpost or some other shipper to get your items here.

Hey guys check this

 

http://www.monster.ducati.com/M795.html

 

i dont get the difference from the M796 though.

Is it somehow cheaper? or better suited to "us" asians?

If not, i think i rather stick to the 796... off hand power and such seems all the same. your thoughts appreciated

 

795 has double sided swingarm compared to 796.

When it comes to bikes, I only see red…

yeah...IMHO, it look almost the same as 796, but w/o the single swing arm.

 

796 looks better. However, are there a different between single n normal swing arm? (except the look of it)

 

No other practical difference for the average rider except a different rear stand if you use them.

Hi guys.. Me and my cuzin are considering a ducati monster 400 very soon.. It is an old bike no doubt. But the thing that is holding us back is whether major problems with the bike will occur once we purchase it. We dont mind wear and tear on minor parts. But we are really afraid that something will go haywire and thus burning a huge hole in our pockets.. Ive come to trust ducati bikes alot as i read alot of Good reviews about them.. In this case, we just need assurances.. Anyone have encountered any major problems with their monster 400?

This depends on what u consider a major problem.

Maybe a list of maintenance that has been done. Receipts of parts (internal & external) that has been replaced (spark plugs, starter coil, timing belt, engine oil, etc..). Probably that will give u some assurance.

 

Other than that, set aside $2k. If nothing happens, then the $2k will be a bonus (carbon fibre parts, rizoma, etc...). Most important is to ensure your brake pads and brake fluid are still 'usable'. My 2 cents worth :)

well.. we are just afraid that the engine might malfunction which will result in us having no choice but to replace it.. since it is an old bike.. those sorts of major problems we wana avoid..

Ducati engines of yesteryears were build to last forever. Replacement of engines is usually by choice not by neccessity.

 

Personal opinion, set aside 4k todo any form of misc that may pop up. Getting a good bike would be a bonus. Get 1 with a good history would save u the hassle of troubleshooting.

 

If u r looking for a bike let me no, i know of 2 that are selling.
