The map in the below post is taken from my initial tracking of the San Diego Witch Creek and Harris fires. Since I have been updating it, my google map for the Witch Creek and Harris fires in San Diego has gotten some 97000 views in only 24 hours. Wow! I hope it's helping folks out. Looks like I'm staying with friends in the town of Coronado, just across the San Diego Bay from the city itself. I hope I'm ok there ... and I hope the shop stays ok, too. The fires are pretty "mad" ... read some of the latest postings to that map. :(

San Diego Closed ...

Oct 22, 2007 10:28:00 AM

We're closed. Two fires of 8000 and 14000 acres have grown to 8+ fires!! Freeways are closed, massive evacuations, authorities urging everyone to stay in their homes. Expect we will not answer phones, ship packages, or make credit card transactions until Wednesday. Below is something of a status map as of 0700 on Monday 22 October 2007 UPDATE: 6:30 pm : As the fire headed south so did the evacuation areas. When the evacuations moved down to only 2 exits away from us, we went ahead and left our home in Mira Mesa area to the shop. We'll sleep further south tonight. It may be overly conservative, but who wants to be forced by rapid moving fires driven by 40~70 mph winds?

San Diego fires.

Oct 22, 2007 7:24:00 AM

Hey Everyone, We haven't yet been directly affected by San Diego's Witch Fire, however, we'll update with the latest news if we need to temporarily close. The San Diego "Witch" fire is too reminiscent of 2003's deadly "Cedar" fire, only the "Santa Ana" winds are much worse this year than in 2003!! The Cedar fire covered 20 miles in only a few hours powered by strong Santa Ana winds, traveling from the same area as the "Witch" fire and across the route CCW employees travel to work! Click for a map of that fire: http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/fires/map/031106firemap.html The oddity of the "Witch" fire is how the "Santa Ana" winds are not behaving like normal; instead of the wind easing or dying during the night, over Sunday night, they got stronger. While typing this up, more fires started. San Diego is up to seven separate wild fires as of 4am. 3:30am PDT listing of the San Diego area fires (location, "name", approx acres: Ramona "Witch" 8000 as of 10pm Sunday. ( Google community maps of Witch fire ) San Pasqual - started by downed power lines at 1am Monday and is "small". Descanso - Tecate "Harris" 14,000 as of 10pm Sunday. ( Google community maps of Harris fire ) Fallbrook - is supposed to be small. San Marcos "Coronado Hills" started near 2am at 20 acres and is now over 100. Weather conditions are worsening: will be more dry with stronger winds Monday and not easing until Tuesday. My contributions to the San Diego Fire Maps on google are on my profile page

In house work ...

Oct 11, 2007 5:09:00 PM

Thursday, Oct 11, we're focusing on in-house work. We've got to process a batch of Dyna coils and get caught up with e-mail and other projects. Apologies if you called and didn't get through. We can't even hear the phone ring when running the coils kits, let alone try to talk on the phones! :) Information about our Dyna Coils Kits: California Cycleworks, Inc is the only place to buy a ready to install, bolt on coils kit for the carbureted Ducati Monsters and Supersports (SS). There are no mods made to your bike, so it remains all stock. These kits have been one of our most popular sellers for over 5 years! They make a noticeable improvement over the small and weak OEM coils supplied with these models, especially at lower rpm! We have an info page at Ducatitech.com which reviews the Dyna Coils Kit. The kit includes a 10 page instruction pack with generous pictures to ensure a simple installation. Applicable models: Supersport 900: 1991~1998 all models 900SS, 900SS/SL Superlight, 900SS/SP, 900SS/CR, 900SS/FE Supersport 750: all years up to / including 1998 Supersport 600: all years Monster 900 : 1994~1999 Monster 750 : all years up to / including 2001. (only the 2001 model is EFI, which this kit is not for) Monster 600: all years Models this kits is not intended for: Any fuel injected Monster, SS, etc. efi Monsters are 2000+ M900 and 2002+ ALL Monsters. All Supersports 1999 and up. This is not to say the dyna coils won't work on these models (they may, they may not, we haven't tried), but instead, it is obvious that the coils have no easy fitment to these bikes, especially not on Monsters! There have been a couple resourceful SSie owners who have replaced the 916-type coils with Dyna coils. You do not need the conversion (and added expense) of our kit! Instead you get to do like many many mechanics who have installed Dyna coils to Japanese bikes for years: make it work. You'll need to fab up your own mounting bracket. The SSie does not require the coils' internal core to be shortened, as we have to on our kits for carby Ducatis.

A little too much work!

Sep 18, 2007 7:46:00 AM

Were up all night working on the new revisions for the MH big tank with battery inset. So Tuesday will get a late start. ;-) Check the excellent MH900e Owner's Club for sneak peek pics! Link: http://ducatiowners.com/discus/messages/279/2599.html

Being behind

Aug 8, 2007 6:39:00 PM

Hi everyone - Candice has a few days off and we miss her. If response to your e-mail or message takes a little longer, sorry about that! We're hard at work getting orders processed and staying on top of things. Thanks, Chris :)

Technology update

Jul 16, 2007 9:59:00 AM

We are working on the transition from Microsoft Windows operating systems (mostly XP) to all Linux OSs (mostly ubuntu). To better serve you, we are making this move away from closed-source, proprietary programs and making the move to open source solutions which enable us greater flexibility.

Some great info:
Free Office-Suite of programs for windows, linux, etc: OpenOffice.org
Other FREE open source programs for windows: site1 - site2 - site3 - site4 - site5
Open source graphics programs for linux. And more. (likely google can tell you about many!)
Ubuntu and Kubuntu are two of many linux operating system distributions.


Soooooo... many apologies for being a little behind with replying to e-mails... we've been quite busy here!

Season for upgrades!!

May 23, 2007 5:17:00 AM

And for the computers, too! While everyone has been hitting the upgrade season for their bikes, at the same time, a couple of the software programs we use to get your shipments out got updated too! UNfortunately, they haven't been playing well together, causing us some lost sleep. No worries, we see the light at the end of the tunnel -- and it is not a train! .... For the geeks out there (like us), we've been casually researching an ERP solution. Today set that plan on the fast track. We're looking for a completely windows-free OS environment... It was going to be hoped to happen with a "couple years" but today's computer misbehavior changed all that! :)

new products!

May 8, 2007 1:10:00 AM

We are ecstatic to announce our OEM replacement fuel pumps for the latest generation of Ducati motorcycles! All models 2001 and newer with a "fuel pump flange plate" utilize this pump we are now selling. Instead of having to spend $600 to $800 to replace the entire assembly, California Cycleworks can sell you a new pump for $150. Our pumps are manufactured to our exacting specifications by an ISO certified factory. Dealer inquiries welcome. Applicable models: Ducati MH900e "mike hailwood" evoluzione : 2001-2002 Ducati "9-series" Superbikes, 749, 999 : all year models : (2003 and up) Ducati Multistrada : all year and engine models Ducati Monsters with fuel flange : all with plastic tanks : S2R800, S2R1000, S4Rs, and 2007+ S4R (testa) ------ In other news, we are able to provide chain adjuster tools to the S2R800, S2R1000, S4Rs, and 2007+ S4R (testa) models. We are stocking new toolbags intended for the 996, which includes a good array of tools, including the eccentric spanner. Both of these exciting new products are not yet in our catalog but are in the queue.

Staintune price increase

May 4, 2007 4:31:00 PM

We got notification that Staintune pricing has gone up approximately 9%. The prices as shown in the catalog are "old pricing" and each section has a reminder that we will confirm actual cost before continuing with your order. We apologize for the inconvenience, but do please consider how this reflects the US Importer's drive to keep prices as low as possible -- when the dollar is strong the US$ price of staintunes imported will decrease. Over the last 10 years, we have seen Staintune muffler and exhaust system prices go up or down about every year. And the price for the average product is comparable to 1995!

Behind the scenes

Apr 19, 2007 7:24:00 AM

We've had our hands full the past few weeks! A track day to have some fun, then a round of computer purchases so we are looking forward IT-wise. Add in some catalog maintenance, and we've been burning the midnight oil! Our latest development is a large capacity fuel tank for Monsters. Initial goal is for it to bolt on to plastic tank'd 2V monsters. The Testa powered S4Rs and 07+ S4R have a different shaped fuel flange... R&D will be needed for fitment on those. Animated pic: A full sized movie is available here: s2r_tank_anim.gif (10MB). You may want to right-click and "save target as" to load the animation directly to your computer. Availability should be by the end of summer...

EK **Black** Chain in stock!

Mar 21, 2007 5:57:00 AM

Your "Dark" Ducati isn't dark without one of these! We're excited to announce stocking of the EK BLACK motorcycle drive chains! Not grey-black like other brands, BLACK. We have a picture of one on our silver and black 2003 Ducati Monster 620 and think it would be amazing on a Monster Dark or 749 Dark! This would probably be a great addition to any of the black painted models like the black S2R1000, black and tang S2R800, and black Multistrada MTS1000. Our catalog page with the chains and sprockets. Also note how the 520 pitch JT sprocket is black and looks sharp with the black EK chain. The EK MVXZ X-Ring chains in black, red, yellow, and other colors are available in 520 or 525 pitch and feature lightening holes in the inner side plates. While all motorcycle manufacturers have bikes that are blue, black, silver, and red, here are some favorites: Green chains could go on your Kawasaki ZX6R and ZX10R. Blue for the Yamaha FZ1, FZ6, and YZF models (YZF-R6, YZF-R1). Red suits the Honda CBR-RR family: CBR600RR and CBR1000RR. Specification on EK 520 MVXZ X-Ring motorcycle drive chain: Premium value Quadra-X ring chains, beefy 5.38 mm diameter pins and 2.0 mm inner and outer plates, an EK exclusive! Quadra X-rings offer 50 to 100% longer life than O rings, while reducing friction up to 50%. High-tech reinforced rollers help provide phenomenal tensile strength. Available in a varity of colors. Competition ready. Note that the innovative screw link eases installation! Features: 9000 lb tensile strength, Max 1000 cc street, 750 cc dirt. Specific: wear life=1500; basis=100.

Pics of Fred, our Ducati Monster 620

Mar 21, 2007 5:16:00 AM

When Fred modeled for some aftermarket replacement parts we sell, we also did some glamour shots. This sweet little 620 was originally bought by Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit from Beverly Hills Ducati. In this link are the gallery pics.
Hi Fred Hi Fred
Fun pic of front of Fred, the silver Ducati Monster 620. Notice reflection of California Cycleworks storefront sign.
Right said Fred... Right said Fred...
Fred's right side. Aftermarket mods: Ducati Performance aluminum headlight fairing and tail, Ducati Performance Titanium (ti) slip-on mufflers (by Remus), California Cycleworks mirrors, Michelin Pilot Road tires. Also changed: front brake system from 2005 Ducati Monster S2R 800.
Fred's left Fred's left
Same mods as above, also see the EK MVXZ X-Ring 520 chain in black and JT 46T rear sprocket, also black. The paddock stand is from Pit Bull (www.pit-bull.com) and is their "SS rear stand".

Regrettably, the Stealth Exhaust system for SSs suffered a set-back. We have ceased involvement with the company we hired to bring the exhaust to market. They repeatedly failed to meet expectation, so their services were released. There is another company we have been negotiating with, which is an exciting prospect. They are well established and are a proven manufacturer.

Keihin FCR kit status...

Mar 1, 2007 2:50:00 PM

While Keihin dual FCR41 kits for carbureted Ducati Monsters and Supersports (SS) are plentiful, the carburetors for dual FCR39 kits (for 600s and 750s) are backordered until April. If you order a FCR39 kit now, your order will be queued and grouped with our other FCR39 backorders. The Keihin FCR carburetor kits are wildly popular modifications for carbureted Ducatis from 1991 through 2001. These carburetors provide an impressive improvement in throttle response coupled with improved performance AND fuel economy. Applicable models: Keihin FCR 41 (available): 1991 through 1998 Ducati Supersport 900 (900SS, 900SS/SL, 900SS/SP, 900SS/CR, 900SS/FE) 1994 through 1999 Ducati Monster 900 (M900, M900s) Keihin FCR 39 (backorder until April 2007): 1993 through 1998 Ducati Supersport 750 (750 SS) all through 2001 Ducati Monster 750 (M750, M750 Dark) All Ducati 600 (583cc) Supersport and Monster (M600, M600 Dark, 600SS) Note: EFI models do not have carburetors and thus are not applicable for FCR carburetor upgrade: Monster 620 (618cc), 800, 1000, S2R family. 2002 Monster 750 and 900 models are also fuel injected.

Dyna Coils Kits Update!

Feb 23, 2007 4:55:00 PM

We have all the parts required to begin shipping the Dyna Coils Kits again. Thanks for everyone's patience while we had more adaptor brackets fabricated. We weren't able to finish the kits today, so we'll come in Sunday, finish them up, and ship out our backorders for them on Monday. The Dyna Coils Kits are a special kit we created to address the weak spark on all carbureted Ducati Monster and Supersport models. Applicable models are model year (MY) 1994 through 1999 Monster 900, 1994 through 2001 Monster 750, Monster 600 (all years), 1991 through 1998 Supersports: 900SS, 900SS/CR, 900SS/SP, 900SS/SL, 900SS/FE, 750SS, 600SS. Note that the carbureted SS in year 1998 may only apply to US models, as the 750SSie and 900SSie were introduced to the "world market" in 1998, but delayed until 1999 for the American market. For more information, please reference our ducatitech.com technical article: ducatitech.com/2v/aftermarket/dyna_kit.html

In memory of Jim Houts

Feb 12, 2007 4:07:00 AM

One of our customers, Jim Houts, was riding the beautiful back roads of east San Diego county when his bike was hit by an on-coming truck on a tight turn. You will be missed Jim, and we should all strive to contribute to the community the way you have. The outpouring of respect and support from the lives you touched was humbling to all present.
