I originally bought a 600 monster in due to the higher cost of a 900 being out of my range. Excluding the engines size difference. The 600 monster was with a wet clutch and a 5 speed whilst the 900 had the infamous dry clutch it’s associated noises, by many, detested by few, but the 900 sported a 6 speed gearbox.

an accident in 1995 I rebuilt my 600 to 900 The wheels of the 900 are slightly wider the 600 (and 750) model. The 900 is aluminium, whilst its smaller were steel, painted in colour to deceive the eye.

600 and 900 were identical mikuni with different jetting. cost to factor in was the lack of a front disc on the 600, a set of 900 calipers also required a 900 cylinder, the 600 master cylinder incapable of giving any real once confronted with 2

The monster was basically a parts bin sharing many components other bikes of the ducati My monster differed from in that I used a 900 SS engine as the power plant. But the engine in the 600 frame perfectly (although the used for a 900 are 2 long items through the frame, the engine and the other side of the frame, the 600 used only one long the front having 2 smaller along with spacers to fit the 600 in, proving that the frame was designed for the 900 block and the 600 was teased the frame to allow a cheaper

An 888 swingarm was fitted to the bike, and was the same component as the 900 standard

The side stand of these monsters was an automatic flip up That is to say that, when the was stood up from a stand, the was spring loaded and flipped up to the with no input from the I, like many others, this.

The usual routine to the automatic retraction was the removal of the lug the spring pressed against down. Making the stand act the as any other manual model.

models were prone to rectifier failure. The older being replaced for a more model around 1996/7. this new rectifier also different wiring, a fact ducati cashed in on quickly.

The patch wiring was around the 75 sterling mark to make the new fit an older loom. when the of the new rectifier was around 150 pounds, chose to replace failed with the same component rather than outlay the wiring cost.

Ducati a recall/repair directive across the a couple of years after the was released (this recall every model in the 900/748/916 The problem was related to the clutch cylinder. Most, if not all, repaired under warranty.

The issue related to the clutch cylinder was caused by riders open covers on the clutch. allows for better cooling, but allows water, salt and else from the road to access to the clutch. If the bearing in the pressure plate dried up or it would grab the actuating rod and it in the engine, effectively turning the rod into a drill bit, in turn would bore way through the clutch slave piston.

Common issues all the 900 range were a difficulty in neutral whilst staionary riders select neutral on the to avoid the quirk), and also a light that glatantly Often saying the bike was in when it wasn’t and vice

The finish of the frame and engine on monsters was not too good at surviving the The early silver anodised were so thinly done, wear became very very quickly, the same be said of the engine finish, one winters ride, the paint to bubble and flake on the engine alarming speed.

Add to this mix the bolts holding everything which turned furry at the sign of adverse weather and seized in place, or worse failed to come out as the hex in the bolt at even the slightest mistake. spawned a great business for the steel bolt manufacturers, and was at the one of the most important things to do any ducati of the 94/96 era that was used all year round.

The looms of the monster range through time, even on the models, early models replicating plugs for all the ancilliary (fuel sender, neutral sidestand switch etc), later revisions fitted plug sizes to remove any Despite many components of the being interchangable, the wiring was not one of them, the faifed bikes the fuse box mounted up front than under the seat the monster.

The monster had no reserve fuel A fuel light would on the clocks to tell you fuel was low, the fuel tap itself an on/off item.

I rode the every year for 6 years at the of man TT. It was ridden hard throughout the and never gave any running (except for the day mine drilled a through the clutch slave after which I found out the recall).

Riding position is good, though the standard ground out far too early for my liking, and fitting a set of superlight pegs to my the lean angles attained considerably more than the in standard trim, so the pegs be mounted for comfort rather for any worries about handling. Top end was 120 for mine in the gearing chosen. this was never a problem for me, the and puch out of corners more made up for a lack of top speed.

Peak power was around 7 and a thousand revs, though the would rev to 8 and beyond (not Standard road legal stifle things in the rev range to stop most people trying to rev to around the 8 thousand but open cans and appropriate allowed full power to be and the careless rider could run up to the redline, and potential destruction of the there was no rev limiter.

It has to be remembered the 900 monster was quite radical in day. It was the largest ‘sporting’ at the time. The VTRs, TL1000’s, Tuono and even the 916 were either a twinkle in the designers or were just on the cusp of

It is good to see that the monster has stood the test of time and is in production today, albeit various improvements to both and form.

That said, I am a bit of a personally, inasmuch as I do not like the valve head derivatives.Personally I that the addition of the water radiators, pumps and associated actually detracts from the of the monster form. Admittedly the gains are phenomenal, but on looks the old SS motor in a monster always for me.

My Monster — a M900 has been fantastic. The issue I have ever had the stock CV mikuni carbs a bit dirty, as all carbs will.

ridden this thing near across country. the twisties, knee on the ground, and long stretches of free The bike is fantastic.

Over the I have heavily modified things, many cosmetic, to give it a little more as my riding skills have I’d buy this bike in a heart beat.
