The bevel gear driving the desmo valve gear on the parallel twins was probably the most noticeable feature of the 70's mid range ducati's.

Kate Moss, any day. Hang on, I'm thinking of Kate Bush.  Dinner with Kate Bush. Which reminds me,  I need to clean the rabbit hutch out today. Anyone else keep animals at home?

Now I'm running up that hill with no problems. Think it's down to swapping out the inverted flange washers.

There's been some comments on thread drift, and I'm wondering what the general consensus is on this subject. I'm guilty of it because I read/ respond in a conversational style, and incidental references to related subjects lead my down that path. I enjoy reading
all the other posts , and the drifting keeps me interested. I'm not on this forum purely for  technical info, but for the fraternity. And it also serves to help form an idea of a poster's history, predelictions, knowledge , experience etc and hence their credibility. So......
I’m sorry I spoiled your Black Panther party
