Not real enthused about the Super Pratic B throttle design.

I'm right there with ya on that. I bought an NOS part a few years back. Took it apart and cleaned/lubed everything but it never did get to the point I thought it would work very well. Ended up buying a modern throttle instead. Won't impress the purists but it should work better. Well, should work better if I ever finish the bike. Neither one seems to sit on the shelf any better than the other...

We have 3 of them! Lol! Zeke stripped the little screw that holds the cover so now 2. The irony is the original one still on the original Scrambler bars works great! So I am going to save it if this ever needs to go back to being a Scrambler. Most of the purists I have met all cuss at this throttle.  frustrato!!! Or Italian cruise control!

On another note. Concerning the rear shocks...what was the stock length, spring rate, was Ducati the manufacturer?

Curious George here.  Is there a reason why Ducati used two pieces of glass in their vintage speedometers? So you are NOT suppose to create a water tight seal for most  speedometers because they need to breathe and not build up condensation. However, Ducati used glazing putty to seal the bezel to the first glass. Then placed a paper gasket between the next piece of glass. So the first seal was water tight but was the second one? Did they ever build up condensation between the two pieces of glass?  Is there a better solution? Putty dries out and you can see the results. Why didnít they use an o-ring?

Ducati doesn't manufacture anything. They assemble engines, and assemble parts into motorcycles, but pretty much all the parts are bought from suppliers. I forget who built the shocks back in the day.

The only speedo I took apart used one piece of glass

Parilla must have used the same suppliers also. That may explain why we are seeing similar parts on our Parilla.  The clutch arms on the engines look the same...Tanks looked similar on some of the earlier models. Thank you.

So we discovered you can use DC current on an AC coil http://www.ecmweb.com/content/using-ac-coils-dc-power
