851 Race Preparation and 888 Racing — Written Sept

I bought some Cagiva Bulletins on Ebay from a in England that detailed the kits and mods to be done to 851 models from ’88 and into race bikes for and BoTT racing. There was some 888 Racing info So I’ve scanned the pages and presented here.

There’s a few missing as I didn’t receive and others without anything in on them I didn’t scan. The is not that great either and the GIF are about 250k so they’re not small files. But hopefully work ok.

Having an ’89 I’m pretty into the 851 thing and tend to get all the info I can their development. There’s an vintage race bike in the museum that’s a real and if you’ve worked on the ’88 and models you can really see the progression and Also one of our customers has an 851 Tricolour Kit which is a very cool and very loud with its megaphone mufflers.

I found out a lot more info one day I was working on this bike. I was to speak to Red, who owns Penrith. Red, it turns is the 851 Tricolour Kit goldmine of info. He one back in late ’88, and Fraser Importers (now the and New Zealand Ducati importer, in ’88 it was a state by state pretty much) bought the 17 or 18 out of the factory.

They must not have too well if there were many left new at the factory the base model was originally at $23,000 here in Australia, reduced to $18,000 when didn’t sell. Upsetting the who ponied up 23 large no end. So not sure how much the kit bikes but I’m guessing they more.

Anyway, the deal according to Red, that if he to NFI and uncrated / assembled the 17 or so kit bikes into road trim be able to buy one. As he remembers it were more kit bikes in Australia than base Superbike Strada as I believe were called — is what the Motociclismo test

In the crate with the kit bikes all the parts detailed in the following — 94mm 888cc and piston kits, exhausts, and rear sub frames, battery etc — to turn them in to Ducati was racing. Std Marzocchi and shock were used, Motociclismo has a picture of a Ducati ’88 factory race with Marzocchi stickers on would appear to be Ohlins’

The sheets also detail you need to do to an ‘89 to turn it the race spec bike. they were running or) 888cc with 33/29 ‘A’ grind cams and exhausts. The same engine as the 851SP2/3/4.

Plus there a variety of eproms available the ‘Racing’ ones were to be in conjunction with a 5 bar fuel regulator (std 3 bar). The kit ran dual black injectors I’m not sure how much flowed, but if it was the same or less the later 851SP red injectors they would have more fuel pressure. memory the 851SP3 and SP4 with the red go to the maximum injector duration on the fuel map in std trim at around the peak.

The 008 eprom for the ’89 model “without air filter, without bottoms” — is the same map as the 009 for 5% more fuel across the map. The silencer bottoms to are the spot welded in removable in the alloy sleeved ’89 the same mufflers used on all 851 and excepting those USA models were fitted with 888 Removing them makes the rather loud and raspy, but help the power, especially in the

Plus there’s a page the improvements for the ’94 888Racing the ’93 model and a comparison for 888SP5, 888Racing ’93 and ’94.
