    I have decided to get back into riding, and have set an appointment to see a 2000 Ducati 748 for this Saturday with a private seller. I have done a fair amount of research regarding maintenance, common issues, etc. but thought I would consult the fchat braintrust. Is there anything I should be looking out for, any issues I need to be aware of, etc. Ay advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for any help anyone can give me.

    all I know is valve adjustments need to be done on schedule.

    maybe that's the Ducati version of timing belts? :p

    obviously check for road rash, evidence of repairs, frame damage/cracks, etc.

    one tip I got years ago on used sport bikes is to check the condition of the wheel at the tire bead; that can be an indication of frequent tire changes (esp on the back), which might tell you whether or not it's been abused/tracked.

    Thanks buddy. I spent some time on the phone with the owner last night going through maintenance info and just generally history on the bike. He reported to me no damage history other than scratch on the tank from the button on his jeans. Also reported a tranny issue last year that led to a complete rebuid of the tranny replacing all sprockets but hasn't had any problems since. All scheduled maintenance has been done on time by a certified tech who's name he gave; owner also told where the tech works if I wanted to contact him.

    Honestly, the owner seemed very straight forward (my BS meter didn't go off) but we'll see what it looks like in person.

    Out of curiosity - why not the big brother 916 / 996 / 998?

    The 748 in particular has issues with the chrome flaking off the rocker arms. At the last valve adjustment they should have pulled the cams and rockers and inspected for wear, especially if any suspicious material was found in the oil strainer. If they have been neglected they can score and ruin the cam in extreme cases. Otherwise it is replacement of the offending rockers, or have them redone by a company like Megacycle.
    http://www.foxperformanceengines.com/megacycle.htm

    Belts are easy to do, every two years. If you are a DIY guy at all, the desmoquattros are not bad to work on and not that expensive to own. Flaking rockers are probably the worst thing.

    Insist he not start the bike and you can see it cold. If it smokes on startup, this would also indicate valve seals. Don't worry if the clutch is noisy and a bit grabby. Ducati's dry clutch normally acts that way.

    If you are familiar with inline fours (especially literbikes), do not expect the 748 to be fast. It isn't. The engine will feel lazy and slow-revving with a little vibration, increasing with revs. Even 600s from when the bike was new had more power.

    One thing about Ducatis now versus owning one in the mid-90's is there is many more outlets for parts now. Ebay will reveal thousands of new, used, and upgraded parts for your bike. I am finding now with my new-to-me Aprilia Mille that parts are much less easily found for it than the Ducatis I have owned.

    All my riding experience is on a smaller Buell and a few different Harley's so I want to keep my first sport bike on the lower end of power. My plan is tonupgrade to a 996 (possibly a 999, but i dont care for their styling as much) or something later on. I don't want to get into something and be overwhelmed. I'd rather start slower and work up to something bigger. At $4.5k the 748 seems like a good place to start with Italian bikes.



    Thank you, I will definitely check on the rocker arm issue. I believe the owner said they were replaced at the 12k service, but I will double check. Slower revving and accelerating is what I want right now. I'll be moving up in time, but smaller is the place to start for me.

    Thank you again for the help.

    the 748 is a great bike for what you describe and a fantastic chassis. you will find it good and quick on any back road and you will not ever miss liter bike straight line power.

    after many years of racing, i really don't find a great thrill in going fast on a motorcycle in on a straight flat road but i still enjoy dragging a knee and the 748 will give you all of that you need!!

    take the lowers off and have a look to see if any damage lies beneith the bodywork....easy enough to tell.

    as tundra says...parts availability is immense and prices are very fair!

    have fun!!

    These are very neat bikes, if you understand exactly what you are getting. It is a no compromise sport bike. A very uncomfortable riding position, designed for someone who is riding hard, who moves around on the seat. Not the bike to carry your wife on, and not a bike to do any extensive travel upon, unless you really are limber, or like the discomfort.

    The power delivery on these bikes is peaky. If you've experience on the Buell (who essentially designed his bikes to replicate the bevel drive Ducati he raced) and Harleys is the only history you've got with these bikes, I strongly recommend you attend one of the better schools before you venture into much riding. My old friend Keith Code runs a very good school, and I can't recommend him enough. Short of Keith's school, Freddy Spencer is back up and running, and he knows his stuff. Kevin Schwantz also has a decent school.

    Just remember that 50% of the motorcycle accidents occur within the first 6 months of ownership.

    if you've made up your mind, take the class and have some fun with your riding.

    Thank you Art. One of my concerns with the Duc is riding position/comfort (I am pretty limber and not a very large person though). I am going to test ride the bike before I commit to anything. There is no intent on putting anyone on the back or taking it on long trips so I am not as concerned with that.

    I looked up the three instructors you mentioned; I do not think I am intending on tracking the bike at this point in time so those three schools seem a bit above what I'm intending on doing. Not that I won't want to take that step in the future, though. I did take a riding class when I first got my license in 2005 (I think), so I do have some formal training...not that I'm opposed to more.

    As Art has mentioned, this will not be a touring bike. Great for short blasts, tougher for long lazy rides.

    If you are riding on the street, remember to ride as though everyone is trying to kill you. They just don't know that they are trying......

    If you plan on riding on the track you will have a blast. Either way get some proper riding gear and WEAR it. Helmet laws vary from State to State. Our state recently got rid of the helmet law but I still would not ride without one.

    I owned a 99 748 for about 7 years. I put about 10k miles on it, almost all aggressive miles. A couple track days and back road bombing. IMHO there is no better bike for those purposes. For commuting and touring, there is no bike worse.

    I used to tell people the riding position was like being whipped by a 6' blonde. It hurts but you really don't mind. I did 500 & 600 mile days and I always needed a day to recover.

    The maintenance wasn't too bad. I did the 6k myself (not hard) all valves were in spec,but I had a dealer with reputable tech with racing experience do the 12k early because the 12k service covers every inch of the bike.

    I miss that bike everyday when I walk into the garage. Decide what you are using it for then buy it.

    PS. The Keith Code school is worth every penny and more. They teach it on a track but it will save your behind on the street.

    I was lookingy at that earlier today. Definitely something on the list to do. Depending on whether I get this bike or not, they have an "experienced" class starting on May 12th that I'll more likely than not, sign up for.

    Get the "Twist of the Wrist" books that Keith wrote too. It will give you a new perspective on how you "think" about your riding. Any track school will help you learn the limits of your bike and more importantly your tires. You will be stunned how far over you can lean the bike and the tires will stick. Even in the rain. It rained during my first track school and it was the best thing that could have happened. I learned I need to be smooth and fluid with my movements.

    mark, you have been licensed since 2005...i think you should do a track school as opposed to the 'experienced" program at RA's parking lot.

    you will love the 748. get a full set of leathers, good glove, boots and an arai...got to the track and drag a knee and your view of life will change forever!

    have fun.

    I agree (although an MSF refresher might not be a bad idea)....I think he should look into a track day. I just found it odd that RA didn't have one but did have an MSF school.

    maybe Blackhawk Farms?

    Tundraphile covered most of the 996/916/748 concerns above. I'll just add a couple of extras I committed to memory. It's been 8 years since I sold my 916, so apologies in advance if I missed a few details.

    1) Plastic coolant overflow reservoir can crack with age.
    2) Nearly all dry clutch Ducs with the factory clutch slave cylinder have a very heavy clutch pull. Plus the slave starts to leak as it ages. Replace with an Evoluzione or Yoyodyne slave asap if you value the dexterity of your left hand.
    3) Beware of bikes with open clutch covers that have had water on the pressure plate cover repeatedly (due to washing, leaving the bike in the rain, etc.) The allen head fasteners that hold the pressure plate may have frozen up and will be difficult to unscrew when it's time to replace clutch plates. The heads round out easily (ask me how I know.) However, looking at the pictures of this particular 748, it wears its original closed clutch cover. Probably no issues here to be concerned about.
    4) Rubber coolant hoses and brake hoses will crack with age (this holds true for all bikes, but Italian hoses seem more susceptible.) Replace with silicon coolant hoses and braided stainless brake hoses.
    5) Make the seller a fair offer on the Marvic magnesium wheels he has for sale. The bike will turn in much faster with those wheels mounted up, and you will not loose a cent reselling them later when you are done with the bike.

    Motowheels.com will be your friend when it comes to parts & accessories. A Sargent seat and Helibars will miraculously improve the bike's sport touring abilities.

    Most of all, have fun!

    At 1st glance that looks to be a nice bike at a fair price. The rockers are a big deal... if not dealt with the cams get taken out as well. 1 owner with history is a huge plus.

    Bear in mind it is the base model 748 'E" model. Non adjustable steering head and a few other deletions from previous years. No dzus fasteners on the fairings doh! In the pictures the bike has the mag wheels installed. The stockers are the 3-spoke jobs that are either classic or fugly depending on your pov.

    As suggested above, I would work the best deal I could including the Marvics and the Pitbull stands the bike is resting on. The handling is so much better with light wheels.

    Regarding the track schools. I have done the Yamaha Champions school several times now. Each time there were several people in attendance who had never been on a track, nor did they intend to do trackdays. They all came away raving about their newfound riding abilities. I would highly recommend a good quality track school as a skills builder. The knowledge gained is invaluable no matter what time of riding you do.

    Update. I took the bike out of a test ride and bought it on site. The bike felt awesome, I was in love after only a short ride down the road and back. The bike looked brand new, it was spotless. The seating position is not bad at all for me. The owner had everything adjusted for his figment, which was damn near ideal for me too. After buying it, I rode about two hours taking the bike down from Green Bay to Milwaukee with one stop to hit the bathroom. No issues with soreness or anything. I loved every second of it...I guess I'm a masochist as someone mentioned above.

    Owner had all maintenance records, rockers and valves were done during the 12k service. He also told me where his certified tech is working now since the shop where he had all the work done is now closed.

    He did take off the after market rims, but I don't mind the old school rims. I probably will look for a set of 748s rims because I like them better, but for now, I'm happy.

    Thank you everyone for the assistance and advice.

    I love 748s. I used to own a 748R (the angry version of the 748) and just loved it. It had amazing midcorner stability. Alas, it was because of this, that one wet morning I decided to take the 748R out on a mountain ride instead of my R6 and had my one and only ever road crash after hitting a wet patch of spilled oil and completely totalted her. I broke a bunch of stuff, but bones heal and steel doesn't. :(

    Good for you! You won't regret it. Get a hold of Chris at Cyclecat for rearsets, bar risers, pressure plates, all kinds of billet goodies. They are works of art and more adjustable than a very adjustable, adjustable thing. :). PitBull front and reversible rear stand are a huge help too. Enjoy your new obsession!

    If you plan to ride on the street, and the bike doesn't already have it, find a low temp fan switch. Typically when the coolant temp goes over 100C, the fan will kick on to help cool the bike while sitting in traffic. The low temp switch opens at 85C, so while it runs more often, it also keeps the bike from getting too hot in traffic. It will still creep above 85C even with the fan on if you are not moving.

    One of the cheapest and easiest modifications to make, but has a big difference in the way the bike works in the real world.

    Just make sure you have a strong battery, as the fan will run even with the bike off until it reaches the 85C lower limit. This can be a few minutes if the bike is really hot (probably less of a problem in WI than MO)

    Most of my riding (day near all of it) is going to be highway or open back roads. I do not intend on sitting in traffic with it. Thank you for the tip though, I'll keep an eye on the temps and upgrade the switch should it look like it's necessary.

    Just realized I never posted pics so here are two from the morning after I picked her up. I'm working on name for her, any ideas???

    That chassis is, to me, the most beautiful motorcycle ever (in 748, 916, and 998 form). I miss mine. I still have a massive poster of a 916 in a crate in one of my garages and lots of diecast models of them in my other garage, including Bostrom's, Bayliss', and Fogarty's rides as well as paintings of them. Congrats!

    i agree with you. it is a very important design in the world of two wheels. i had just bought my first 888 spo when the 916 arrived at the dealer and i was like..."oh schit"!

    it was off the chart sexy...and still is to me! i have my 916 w/ my eraldo built motor and i will not sell it for anything else as there is not another bike i find sexier and it still rips!

    advice...if you want your 748 to look even better, get some marchesini's (mags or aluminum) and have them powder coated gloss black. they look so wicked and will compliment that front fender!!

    oh...and get some good DOT race tires on there and you will really enjoy it!!

    That is why I was looking at Ducs. Since I was a teenager, the 916/996/998/748 has been the Holy Grail of bikes; I've been lusting after one for a long time. Nothing else on the market looks nearly as good and nothing else sounds like it. After the test ride, I said to myself, I have to have one, NOW!

    With reagrd to the wheels, I agree. There is a set on 748S wheels on ebay powder coated black that I have been looking at, but they have a red strip along the outer rim. I don't know how that would look on my yellow bike.

    If that stripe was removeable, I'd jump on the set.

    In that case on the highway, expect normal temps of 80C. If it is above 90C while normally moving start looking for the problem. These bike run hot, but many owners ignore an issue thinking it is just typical.

    When in traffic though, the bike can go from 80C to 100C in just a couple of minutes.

    Thank you, I really appreciate the tip. We are having cooler weather right now, so would it be more advisable to wait until the weather gets hotter to truly evaluate the the temps, or is ambient temp not really too much of a factor?


    Thank you again,

    My 851 and my old 999 both would get very warm in traffic regardless of outside temps. Funny thing on the 999 (underseat exhaist like the 748) it was actually fairly comfortable in cool temps because it manages the air very well and you had a built-in seat heater. Cool days it does take longer to heat up, but not by much.

    The low-temp fan switch also is nice on cooler mornings, when the fan kicks on you gets this whoosh of warm air from the fairings. Not so great though when it is 95 outside and you are already sweating like crazy, then it is like someone just opened an oven door :)

    I would suggest you lurk or join Ducati.ms and if you are brave, Speedzilla. There are lots of knowledgable people, even some Ducati techs on both forums. Ducati.ms is similar to this place in moderation. Speedzilla is basically the wild west without much external moderation, but is far more entertaining. Ironically there are few squidly/troll types on Speedzilla, they seem to get weeded out pretty quickly. Almost everyone there is over 30 and understands this is for fun. Ducati.ms has all types, some that take themselves way too seriously. But good info is available both places.

    I would not worry about the red pinstripe it will look great with it IMO.

    After reading this thread, it's safe to say if everything checks out with the 748 (IDENTICAL to yours Joker) that I'm hopefully looking at this weekend.. I'll be buying it on the spot as well. I'm graduating from a 750 SS that I owned 2 years ago so this feels to be a good evolutionary bike.

    Good for man. I love mine, I cannot get enough of it. I'm inventing places the ride for no other reason than it's blast.

    I'm excited. Waiting on the guy to call me (local realtor based upon a search of his email address) so I can set up a time tomorrow to have a look at the bike. It apparently has low 20K mileage on it at the moment.

    joker out of curiosity how tall are you? I'm on the shorter side and am just curious how easy the bike will be to adjust for my riding height.
