New York Motor Works StreetfighterS Valve Adjustment




My friend Jeff is trying to start a motorcycle maintenance business... or at least he's thinking about it.  He's got a fully equipped shop out near Huntington, and has immersed himself in Ducati knowledge, striving to be a DIY master Ducati tech.
