I'd like to make a list of strange, but normal things for people with a Ducati 696 to maybe limit fears and forum scouring. All the info in one place should be helpful for everyone. If anyone else has something to add, please do:
The 696 makes a LOT of wonderful mechanical noise. What's...
I am trying to replace o2 sensors on my ducati 696, there are 2 connecting wires for labeled V and O. Which O2 sensor connects to wiring labeled V and which ones connects to wiring labeled O? Or does it matter?
