Cheers dude - I've spent about 30 seconds with it since it arrived so I seriously need to have a better look round it!

I'm searching round for things like tyres, generators, tyre warmers etc amd it's a new experience so I think a new thread is in order - even if it just helps others!

It's been a little while but at last the end is in sight! The tank is now on with the new fuel cap and the tank protectors stuck on. The clutch cover that was re-sprayed is now on too. She's also been treated to a service and the starter motor has been rebuilt due to it making a nasty, angry screeching noise! She also flew through the MOT so she'll be ready to go once the last couple of bits of trim are put back in place and she's had a wash.

I'm now the organiser of my local Ducati Owners Club GB branch and our first meet is this Wednesday so the timing is perfect. Apart from a few more carbon pieces, all that I really want to get for her are an exhaust / filter combo and some rearsets (Spoiler: I may have some on the way!).

Here are a couple of rubbish pictures to give you an idea for now.

Proper!

I had reservations about you finishing the tank by hand but that's a fabulous job! nice one!

Love the overall look - bad ass!



Bet you never saw that coming when you bought it!

Thanks buddy - it does shout 'race bike' - even the wife commented on it looking mean. She said the red was sexy but this is more menacing.

I had no idea it would go this way when I got it - it was oem all the way. It should be pretty unique though - the combination of satin (not gloss or full matte) and SBK panels should make sure of that.

I've just got to decide whether to go for just an end can or a full system as neither are cheap options but the full system is something I never thought I'd consider. I think it's a full on modding illness rather than a bug now.
