Hello and welcome to the club PPuxley.

Sounds like you're not exactly a beginner and have found the ropes already.. Looking forward to a build thread.

Darren is almost right, I bought a collection of silencers, but I do have some to spare.
I wouldn't pay too much attention to the part numbers as I even have some stamped lafranconi and some stamped Remus, they are identical.
The silencers I have left are the Lafranconi/Remus "pair" and are a little scratched, but what I do, and indeed what Buzzer did, is polish off all the anodizing so they twinkle in the Sun and look better than new. I gently core mine too, just so's you know it's running without frightening the horses..

Your right there are lots of Gazzas, I was searching for the wrong name it's 'Mr Gazza', but there is really only one Gazza on here! Sounds like they have all gone now, but it was a while back. Ebay! But will probably cost more to post than they are worth, super heavy

Sorry, missed this. Yes, saw what Buzzer did. Ive had some success with stripping anodising (im assuming they are "flat" anodised aluminium) dressing the scratches, red scotchbriting, vapour blasting, then reanodising to end up with very nearly an original finish. That would cost me around £30 a can in blasting and anodising plus a lot of time (but my times free) or I can just keep looking through the build for a really good pair. i saw the "coring" he did and will get the deets for that in due course

Welcome to the forum PPuxley is that a proper (180) jota? A friend of mine was once willing to sacrifice his left nut to own one.

120 Jota. Actually its not even that, the motors been dealt with by Laverda Guru Keith Nairn. Now 1200, with A mikuni carb conversion. Originally 83bhp, now dyno'd at 103.
Its funny how people say "proper" Jota, my friends who have both admit the 120s the better bike. But, youre right, it doesnt have the kudos of the original Slater Jota. Much rarer, too, there were only 400 of these ever built

Yea, I actually have a 1200 180 Laverda Mk I with a lot of Jota and Mk II bits on it. they're a nice 'old' bike but not even close to what Ducati did with the Monster, talk about heavy!

Yours is 95 model year, so the Type Approval writing will list the M900 and M600, but not the M750 as they hadn’t started production then. The silencers will have the chamfered underside too, as they were introduced mid ‘94 model year.

Correction: They only list the M900, until the M750 was added. M600 have a different legend.

You've probably seen there is currently what looks like a fairly decent pair on ebay for £35+£15 post

Those are later than ‘95 though as they don’t have the Cagiva era font for ‘Ducati’.

Yea, From what I've read just now, I think ZDM A21 and B21 are for the earlier up to '99 M900 bikes but some of these have the later font. If you want model year specific I guess you will need the actual part numbers

Just catching up. Thanks for that Darkness and Darren. Blimey, it is a minefield. I need to try and find the numbers out. Craig at Moto Rapido was very helpful and more than happy to confirm numbers etc.
