Harley plugs are .050.



Same as a Cushman.

well...it's been awhile

.050 seems like a big gap for points ignition

.025 - .028 for points, .038 - .043 for electric. Points gap was .018. No wonder Seruzawa couldn't get his to run!

I don't know art, but I know what I hate.



As another poster said, something's out of kilter when the Japanese are designing prettier bikes than Ducati. But, the designer of the R1 didn't have big articles/interviews in the major mags explaining his design philosophy and how I'm a philistine boob if I can't appreciate it, so I guess I'm wrong and the 999 is beautiful and the R1 is corporate and soulless. I mean, who am I as a consumer to argue with Pierre Terblanche? I should march down to my bank, withdraw fifteen large, buy a Terblanche Duck, and kiss his Gallic a$$ for the privelege. As a Professional Aesthete, it's the least he deserves from a benighted lumpenprole like myself who can't recognize brilliant design when it blasts him right in the eyeballs.

Check your monitor. It looks a deep and lovely red on mine and it was recently color calibrated.

Default Re: 2004 Ducati ST3

I've set and re-set and checked those pics on other monitors and those Duc pics are orange-tinted on all of them. Anybody else have this trouble? It may be a Dell thing since all of the monitors here are 19" Dell flat screens. I'm kinda sensitive to this particular issue since I own a Sony f717 that tends to over saturate reds. The Yamaha F1 and Harley look red on the MO home page but not the Ducati. I also do a good deal of photo-editing on this monitor and have never come across this trouble. HELP! And sorry for the non-moto concern being addressed here.
