As many of you know, some lady rear ended me while I was riding my Ducati Monster 900. I got the insurance check yesterday, and made my way to the dealer.
The mufflers were slightly scratched and dented, but who cares...they still work. Brake pedal was scratched...who cares. I ended up ordering $80 worth of plastic that was broken or cracked, and spending the rest of the money ($800 worth) on some fine performance upgrades.
I bought some Spegler stainless steel braided brake and clutch lines (in red of course!), Racetech fork springs, and some new Pirelli Diablo tires.
Those upgrades combined with my flat slide racing carbs, Dyna coils, Ohlins rear shock, and 41 tooth rear sprocket should make the bike a hoot to ride.
Hopefully the parts will be in soon, and the shop will get everything bolted on. Can't wait to ride 'er again!!
To quote Kathy on the way back home after a ride, "You're bike sounds beefy".
i was making my dirtbike sound... BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPP..... whips in air .... BRAAAAAAAAAAAAP BRUM BRUM BUUURRRRRRRAAAAAAAPPPP...
then heads for the corner... pinnnnnnnnnnnnggggg brrrrraaaaammmmmm pinnnnngggg..
have you given it the stage 2 treatment on the airbox? I still have a set of red Ducati corse racing coils and a set of superbike brake levers with master cylinders and the assembly for the clutch. Also the clutch slave cylinder to reduce lever effect. You know a full set of 888 SPO fairings bolts right up to that frame? I have access to a set.....
