^ That would be a farmer's solution. Ever thought of claiming insurance? In my case that would be a 250$ deductible and off you go...

Took out the steering stop, scratched the mirror and the bar end (both replaced from this list) but left everything else untouched !
I had the dealership quote for replacing the bottom clamp in case I wanted to discussing with insurance what I wouldn't claim for (brownie points ?) $1800NZD !
I'll prolly have it welded during winter if I can't source a bottom clamp myself.

Good idea. Epoxy resin is used in some aerospace applications so I think I will be okay until I can find a used lower tree.

I think you be better off drilling a hole, tapping it, and mount some kind of bolt/stud with same height/diameter. Grind it afterwards if necessary.

Drilling a hole into the tree will start to have structural implications - at least in theory...

Just an ittly bitty, to give a screw some bite - just needs to withstand horzontal movement. But I see your point. If the deductible isn't too high, the best answer is insurance.

I'm only a mechanical engineer who wrenches Ducatis on the side for the last 20 years or so...so I don't know much about machines....but the 3200 psi rating of your epoxy is significantly short of the allowable stress for aluminum.

It's a two or two-and-a-half hour job to R&R the triples. Why not pull 'em, have the stop welded back onto the lower triple (it'll actually be stronger than the OE installation if it's done correctly), and reinstall it? That'll also give you a chance to augment Ducati's notoriouisly stingy greasing of the headstock bearings!

That's certainly what I'd do.
Thanks from Phl

In the past I've looked for welders, sheet metal guys, etc but not much to choose from on Oahu. You should see our one "Ducati" dealer.

So as a mechanical engineer can you tell me what purpose the stop has other than to keep your fingers from getting smashed? It broke off rather easily so if it was designed to do something else I would be interested to hear. This is just a temp fix until someone crashes their bike and has a good steering head for sale. Already found several good used parts I needed off eBay.

In this case: better than losing it. It is supposed to break i guess. Also to show potential used bike buyers if it has been dropped. Functional - not really...
