Ducati 996 Biposto

Hi Hugster

Could be a good idea to first check the fork head stock bearings for any notchy feeling or play.Check all the spindles are tight(wheel and swing arm).Check wheel bearings  for wear and play.Check wheels are straight(no buckles)also fork oil and air gaps(no fork oil leaks).Check rear shock for oil leak and if the spring is in good condition and is the right weight for your weight?and that the shock linkage and swing arm is free moving and not starting to seize.Then go for set up.Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:
