Ditto what Loony888 said, i fitted a 916 throttle and cable to my 851/916 special,which had no lever on the lefthand bar. I think the underslung rear brake was fitted to the SP4 but not on the SP5. I didn't fit the underslung brake set up to my bike as when i was "HARD ON THE BRAKES" the rear wheel was waveing about in the air! It seemed a lot of expense for something that i wouldn't be using.

Hi, weeveetwin said you can't just leave the bike ticking over whilst you get ready.......Not so if the bike is set up right! they will rumble away quite happily after a small blip on the throttle. I only went for the fast idle throttle on my bike after some "mild" tuning......now with the 916 throttle she barks away quite happily!

IF you have the "caliper above the disc" setup, make sure that there is a security clip in the end of the pin that goes through the caliper and pads.

I would expect one on an SP but with Ducati you can't be sure they had the right ones in stock the day they built yours.

The earlier 900SS did not have the clip, and the pins were given to working their way out, - the pads drop - the wheel locks.

It happened to me, fortunately at very low speed.

The underslung brake set up should stop all that waving about in the air. Its prime purpose is to stop axle hop. I have one on my bevel. Rear lockup went from a violent bouncing noisy affair to a fully controlable slide.

Sorry Paul I must be imagining the whole thing. For the last 20 years.
