Daihatsu Fourtrak Service Manual. The Daihatsu Fourtrak was an off-road vehicle built by Daihatsu between 1984 and 2002. The Rugger was also called the Daihatsu Rocky in most export markets, and Daihatsu Fourtrak in the UK. It has also received a series of different names elsewhere, which is why it is often referred to by its chassis code (F70) to distinguish it from its various siblings.
Three engines were available: the petrol Toyota 3Y 2.0 L with one overhead cam, a single carburettor and 88 PS (65 kW); and two 2.8 litre diesel variants, normally aspirated with 73 PS (54 kW), or turbocharged with 88 PS (65 kW), both featuring overhead valves. Part-time 4WD was standard on all models. A Toyota-engined version was sold in the Japanese market as the Toyota Blizzard.
The second generation was introduced in 1992 and available for export the following year. Among the evolutions was the replacement of the early leaf sprung axles by independent front suspension and a coil sprung rear axle. The petrol engine was enlarged to 2.2 L, with a small power hike to 91 PS (67 kW), while the 2.8 Turbo Diesel was fitted with an intercooler, resulting in a power increase to 102 PS (75 kW). Still, the model was considered too rustic, still not possessing rear doors in the long-wheelbase model, and Daihatsu declined to replace it, concentrating instead on their smaller automobiles.
Indonesian-built Feroza with five-door station wagon bodywork.
In Indonesia the F70 versions had a long life, built on several different wheelbases with many styles of bodywork. In addition to the usual three-door station wagon there was also a longer, five-door version as well as a pickup truck. It was marketed there as the Daihatsu Taft, Rocky, or Hiline when powered by diesel engines. With a petrol engine it received the Feroza name (not to be confused with its smaller, F300-series sibling which seems to have never been marketed in Indonesia).

The Ducati Monster 696 is a naked motorcycle. The smallest model in the Ducati Monster range, it was announced in November 2007, and officially launched in early April 2008 in Barcelona.
Since its launch in 1993, Ducati had sold over 200,000 Monsters, which at one time amounted to 60% of Ducati’s production. The initial Monster was cheap and easy to build and has remained so during its long life. Ducati’s “less-is-more” rationale of the Monster range aimed to combine high performance in a compact motorcycle. Ducati recently updated the Monster range, with redesigned components to improve performance and appearance.
The engine is the “Desmodue”, a 90° V-twin, 696 cc (42.5 cu in) 58.8 kW (78.9 hp) air-cooled engine with desmodromic valve actuation. A slipper clutch prevents locking of the rear wheel through clumsy down-shifting. Although Ducatis often use a dry clutch, this model has a 21-plate oil-bath “wet clutch” which weighs less, gives quieter operation, and needs less maintenance.
The Monster has a steel trellis frame and a lightweight aluminum sub-frame. The claimed dry weight is 161 kg (355 lb).
The seat height is 770 mm (30 in), which may make it easier for some riders to plant their feet firmly on the ground. This is a potential issue for inexperienced motorcyclists.
The Monster has Brembo brakes. The front has 320 mm floating discs have 4-piston, radially mounted calipers. The 245 mm rear floating disc have a twin-piston caliper. Anti-lock braking ABS is an option.
