Hey Tom Tom, I'm on my way to putting a 1098 into my 999,any one know if any of the 848 throttle bodies are the same as a 1098 or are they smaller.Have a motor(in bits at the moment) but the price was rite. As i need to find some new pistons, is it worth while locating some Hi comp ones or just stay standard. I'm sure i'm going to have many more questions. Also you said you could map the ignition timing in my 999 ecu, is it possible to also disable the imobliser so i can use another dash off another bike. Thanks in advance.
My bike is finally done! I had her revving just right ~1100 rpm but as soon as I went WOT and came back to idle it was revving at 3000 rpm. I pulled over but I couldn't see anything wrong. Overall she is awesome. She pulls strong (so much power compared to my 996 engine). I love it! I don't like the sound of the OEM exhaust, need to core it out but before I can do that I need to take my bike in and get it inspected, smogged, and registered. I go back to work tomorrow (overseas) so shes parked in my garage until May 11th when I can fix the revving issue and rider her again.
In May I plan on coring the exhaust and getting it coated. As for my frame, I need to get it touched up again. It got a little 'beat up' during the engine swapped. The suspension and brakes are getting upgraded too, next up are going to be full ohlins front and back and mono blocks upfront. Need to start checking out Ebay and my other sources for that. I can't wait to take my bike out on the track... I'm also looking at getting 998 style fairings to replace mine. Found a few good sources but I'm still debating if I should but or not. If I decided not too my fairings are going to get painted (well the whole bike). Still not sure if I want to go a deep Ducati red or the more orange like racing Ducati/Ferrari red. We shall see....
I'm already counting my days down (and I haven't even left LOL). I think my cable is getting snatched up... but to be sure I'll be taking the voltage measurements when I get back. The only crappy thing is that when I come back it will probably be too hot to ride during the day. Only night riding.. and even then, its still hot...
The best part of my 'new' bike.. it looks like a 996 yet has the balls of a 1098
After fiddling around with stuff for too long I brought the bike to Mugello.
Just got home but have to tell you, what a place, this is an A class track, still high on it
The 916 chassie is the thing to have! Finally got the setup working really well, it goes where your mind wants it to.
It turns better than any bike I approached these days including all the new bikes and BMW 1000RR full acra was the only bike I couldnt pass on the straight lol.
On board films rendering...
Film one, drying up and had to take a sighting lap, so its a bit slow first 8 minutes:
