A lot of the engine stuff is standard Ducati. My rear brake pedal caused the oil level sight glass to crack on my E650. I could find no one in the USA that had that part. Fortunately these guys did have it (best to buy an extra if you're ordering from Oz) -
When I was cleaning and lubing the swingarm and rear suspension linkage I discovered (from my local bearing supply house) that some of the bearings appear to be custom manufactured for Cagiva. I cleaned the needles which had fallen from the bearing, applied grease, new seals (which are more readily available), and re-assembled. This worked ok. The rear suspension and overall handling was much improved.
At least you've got two bikes, so you should always have one good one!
