Year of Manufacture
Bimota YB8 YB800145
Hi there
Am trying to confirm the year of manufacture for a Bimota YB8, Frame number YB800145. Was sold as a 1989 but everything I have read points to the YB8 not being made until 1990+. Are you able to confirm of point me to where I could find out. This is due to me racing in a pre 1989 class so I need to confirm.

I'm almost certain a Ducati F1 clutch is the same. Try Frasers or Gowanlochs.

Charging Problem Solution
Bimota SB6
I saw some folks have the same problem I had so i thought I should help.

My SB6 had a charging problem when I bought it, but after everything in the alternator was checked/changed the problem continued. I found that the problem was in the rubber coupling that is located between the alernator and the engine spline output.

I changed it and everything is OK. It is hard to replace it though, as the frame is in
the way, but it is possible. The part is a replacement part from Suzuki and it has been changed in order to avoid the problem. Make sure you buy the 'new' one.

I hope this helps a few people. I attach a pic with the SB7 costume I'm using for track days.

Thank you and congratulations for your work in cybermotorcycle!

Can you tell me how many SB6's were brought into Australia?

I believe there were two importers - Gowanloch Engineering of Sydney, and later a Perth company (Thoroughbred Motorcycles?) which I think may be no longer in business. Moto One down in Melbourne may also have some information. Ed.

Bimota Furano
Recently acquired 1992 Furano ex Japan. Only missing lower fairing and has Antera rear wheel. Rode it home and then petrol pump broke up, no identifying marks. What is it and where to get another ? Also would like workshop manual or at least wiring diagram. Perhaps I should have bought that fireblade after all ? The model just before Furano was called a Tuatara after the NZ native dinosaur still living.

This is the only information I have found, so far. It's a PDF which mentions that filter - perhaps emailing the company may bring results.

High vibration above 7,000rpm<
bimota sb6
I have just bought this model and love it. However from 7,000 upwards the vibration is so bad as to make it impossible to ride.
Any ideas?. It has 20,000 miles on the clock

Suggest you take it to a competent mechanic, preferably one familiar with the GSXR11, as this sounds much more serious than the relatively high vibration levels associated with this engine in standard form. Ed.

bimota db3
Cuando pongo el cambio en punto muerto, no se enciende la luz verde. ¿Es dificil reparar esta anomalia?

When the gear is in neutral the green ligth don`t shine. The bulb is ok. Is dificult repair this?

It is possible that the sensor in the gearbox is faulty, in which case the problem is easily fixed. If the problem is with the instrument cluster, however, you will need a specialist to inspect the console.

message: Hi,
I purchased a new YB11 from new in 1998. During the guarantee period I had to have 2 new sets of clocks because when using the brakes the clocks stopped working. When the guarantee had expired I had the problem again, this time the dealer returned the clocks to Germany for repair. This time the German repairer stated that they had replaced a Zener Diode in the clocks which cured the problem. All has been OK until a couple of weeks ago when the fault reappeared. When putting on the front or back brake the brake lights do not work and the clocks drop to Zero.
I would appreciate any information on this reoccurring fault and any ideas on how to fix it.
Thanking you in anticipation.

Dave Thompson

Since I now own a Bimota I thought it would be good to finally see some information about Bimota on the net. So I started [404]

It's faaaar from finished. AAMOF, I didn't do any development on the site until new years eve. But there *will be loads more info when I get some time free. And for a long time, I find it fun to work on a site again. The Ducati site hasn't gotten much attention form me, mostly because there are so many Ducati sites out there already now, even thought I was probably one of the 5 first and definably the biggest (before arrived and before I started neglecting it in early 1997, because of work and other things). Ducati lost some of its soul when the new organization took over and I don't identify myself very much with the new Ducati (insert: brand, company, bikes. Whatever you like ;-)

But Bimota though, is more fun to do something for :-)
