Hi to all from duke arty [new member]
my brother and i have just gone halvies in an 09 duc 696 for a great price with a lowish 12000km on the speedo, second hand but it needs a bit of work ie fork seals, oil+ filter, maybe belts, rear tail tidy, rear indicators and clutch cover gasket probably too, and a good clean up.
anyone know the best brand engine oil to use for these bikes,
a quality brand of fork seals,
what weight of fork oil
and fork oil amount etc?
need front and rear tyres too, what do people use?
anyone know a parts shop to go to in melb/vic
Im in melb, the bike was quite cheap= hopefully we scored a bargain @4700 au$
my bro rode it and it blew no smoke, went into all gears, started no probs, ran fine.
done all the ppsr check stuff, come up clean.
def needs fork seals which i can do,
slight oil leak from clutch side cover at one of the top bolts
the rear licence plate plastic holder is broken off, il have to wire in new indicators
il post a few pics shortly see what folks think.
love to hear anyones thoughts and advice,
im well handy with a spanner so were doing everything in house[in garage lol]
but its the first time owning a duc.
cheers from the arty duke.

were piking it up weds this week.il post a pic of the whole bike shortly.
